Mary Place Gallery, Paddington, Sydney, 2007. These works catalogue the artist’s commentary on a social & political level. Through this exhibition, the artists is asking what it means to be Australian. Is this the Australia we want?  Wilson uses humour to blend a combination of Australian icons and stereotypes to ask questions, make comments and tell the story of her observations.
