Domestic Bliss

Domestic Bliss was inspired by tracks worn into lino in the kitchen of an old abandoned house.
What might the women who lived there over the years say to each other if they could meet? Grace (a 1950s housewife with a secret), Jackie (a feisty 1970s solo mum) and Sarah (a modern businesswoman and mother of two) all live at 47 Portia Street.

In researching for Domestic Bliss,Christina Stachurski interviewed thirty women and read stacks of old New Zealand Women's Weeklies, interested in how attitudes to house and home have changed for women over three generations - and how things today might even be coming full circle.
