First Commissions inspired by The Sleeping Beauty: portray an extravagant political figure.
Napoleon poses the improbable, ‘What would Napoleon Bonaparte do if he was reborn in the modern era as an Australian woman?’ In this fictitious film piece Napoleon ignores gender, doesn’t care that she’s a bum and is unstoppably arrogant. Although it might be liberating to entertain such an unfortunate reincarnation of this despot, the artist reminds us that Napoleon is still just an egotist who killed millions of people for a “legacy”, only to die like the rest of us.
