Part of You—— Searching for the symbolism about body parts artworks (Expired)

  • There is an English phrase 'a long face'. When people say ‘ he has a long face’, which means he is  unhappy. Face is supposed to be part of our organ, but in this sentence, it is given meaning here, indicating emotion. 
  • There is a movement called ‘free the nipple’ that argues women’s bodies, sexuality and safety. in this campaign, nipple means empowerment and equality.
  • By giving meanings to human organs, they may represent an idea, a culture, or an equal rights struggle that brings us closer together.
  • The theme of this exhibition is' Part of you ', where visitors could question which part of body means to you. also, they can know about different cultures' interpretations of body parts and what these parts mean to artists.
