  • This tape investigates the broad topic of women and power. By conflating the historical image of Queen Elizabeth I with those of popular culture, the artist illustrates how the relationship of women to power has not significantly changed since the 16th century. The aging Queen speaks directly about such things as love, deception, and virginity. Fast-moving and humourously provocative.
