We’ve been told throughout history, that women’s bodies should be contained, encapsulated, soft, easy to look at, and easy to handle, much like a statue or even a consumer object. To enforce these demands, the female body has become much more encoded with conceptions of beauty and disgust than the male body. These guidelines ensure that the body does not cross its boundaries, does not reveal its interior and natural conditions, and thus remains passive and contained, both literally (in its form) and metaphorically (in behaving and presenting itself in what is regarded as appropriate for a woman).
Our bodies represent our past, our stories, our happiness and sadness, our health and sickness. It’s the carrier of our emotions. Our body is also central to how we understand the faces of our identity.
There is so much that women’s bodies can tell.
With this art project, we intend to re signified the women’s body representation.
