The actual title of this work is:
“The suggestions were well received by the opposition parties (Paul Lennon, 2006)” Jamin, 2006, enamel on aluminium, 120 × 120cm.

The text in the piece is a quote from the Tasmanian Premier Paul Lennon in June 2006 during Question Time in parliament where he made a few (joking?) suggestions for a new Tasmanian slogan. He said:

“Tasmania: a state of conspiracy perhaps (laugh) or perhaps we could even have Tasmania: the mates rates place. I like this one though, I like this one, Tasmania: no hiding here.”

Hmmm…. food for thought.
