Artist and ex-race car driver Sarah Yates explores gender roles through a range of media from sculpture to photography.
As part of this exhibition, she asked a group of women to draw either their car or their breasts, which she turned into hand-sewn cushions made with upcycled woollen blankets.
Yates prompts viewers to reflect on how society has changed and which aspects may not have moved on.
This is one of two exhibitions presented by Papakura Art Gallery exploring the rights of women and gender roles as part of the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
