1260 women from Wellington signed the third suffrage petition. In September at Toi Poneke in Wellington I hung chandeliers representing each suburb’s women from the ceiling in the gallery. The names of the women were listed on wallpaper sheets on the wall near each chandelier, linked with a thread.

In July 2014 I represented the 607 women who signed the third suffrage petition from the Wairarapa region with 607 cast domestic objects.

These were hung around the region in four different locations and brought together at Aratoi at the conclusion of the project.

I spent three weeks at a cottage at NZ Pacific Studios, Mt Bruce where I had won a fellowship.

Giovanni Tiso was kind enough to write a post about the work
