Mesmerising. Spookish. Enlightening
Spiritual and beautiful, what an awesome kaupapa and how courageous of these 4 women to tell their stories through their bodies. Such an “outside of the square” idea/concept. Keep it up!
A brave piece of work.
Well done, Keep up the good work

Major work! Congratulations!
Stunning + thought provoking
Kinda claustophobic, Omggosh scary, out of everything mostly scared of DEATH that’s what it felt like, Dying. A man walked in while I was in there, didn’t make eye contact though, hehe…weird.
Brave women. Brave work to highlight sensitive topic.
The missionaries and white society destroyed such Pasifika self-esteem.
Always with love to our mums

Fantastic, raising awareness – Well done, very brave!!
Leilani, Ema and the team @ Fresh – it is a beautiful & powerful work, kudos to you.
An insightful representation on how Maori and Pacific women view their physical and spiritual health and sad so many avoid cervical and breast screening out of fear of the unknown and cultural understandings about having health checks.
Gallery looks fantastic, the work is riveting. Congratulations.
As a typical Maori woman, I appreciate the message. I continue to try and overcome this issue.
An inspired video presentation, well planned and thought-out project. Its graphic nudity and concepts confronts issues of the taboo. Well done!
