Theme: Part of You. What does the body part mean to you? In addition to the physical role, does the body part have role to play with gender, group, and mind?

The exhibition is held by Contemporary Curation students in Winchester School of Art.

Because of COVID-19, the gallery will not open until the situation chnages. Currently we will only display the works online.

Information about the project:

The English phrase 'he has a long face', means he is  unhappy. The face is supposed to be part of our body, but in this sentence, it is given a different meaning, indicating emotion. 

There is also a movement called 'free the nipple' that argues for women’s bodies, sexuality and safety. In this campaign, the nipple stands for 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 can question what each part of the body means to you and about different cultures' interpretations of body parts.

How to apply:

1. Description of the works (name, size, material, date)

2. Artists' statement about the topic

3. Images
