Great Australian Failure

Borrowing from the great Aussie classic, The Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Book and the front covers of newspapers, Great Australian Failure compares everyday blunders to Australia’s national pastime of courageous yet conspicuous failure.

Fake cakes and portrait paintings parody serious culture through misrepresentations that not only highlight the failures of the subjects within the work but the greater failures embedded in the Australian political and celebrity culture that consume everyday Australians.
