Sentimental Stories

How do women across Aotearoa define ‘sentimental’ – what is the most sentimental object in their home? We asked 50 wāhine across the country the same question. In a world filled with endless things to buy, what do we choose to place value on? What can’t we replace, and what does it say about who we are, and where we are from? We hope to remind readers with this series (particularly in turbulent times) that we are all human. We hope these stories serve as that kind of reminder. Endless gratitude to all the wāhine so far who have welcomed us into their homes to create this work. Thank you for your vulnerability and openness. We hope you love these stories as much as we do – Nicole Barratt & Chloe Mason
