Inspired by the artists ongoing interest in the colonial history of the Indian Subcontinent as well as the British opium trade with China. She animates the protagonist of The Last Post, an East India Company man who appears in various guises, as dissolving, exploding, and reconstituting himself throughout the work. Through the assorted metamorphoses of the main character, The Last Post can be seen as a metaphor for societies and cultures in constant, never-ending transformation.
