An action figure too far

We've featured the artist action figure man Michael Leavitt before and the only reason to do so again is because Michael appears to have gone an action figure too far. What was he thinking when he came up with an action figure representing one of Feminism’s figureheads looking like a Warehouse stripper? Has this man no sense of metaphor at all? Barbara Kruger - who visited New Zealand for her survey exhibition initiated by our own National Art Gallery back in the 1980s - didn’t strike us as the kind of person to be amused by such rendition. The internet being what it is, it probably won’t be too long before Leavitt gets the message.
