Delicate bodies and frail organs with great spirits and ambitious dreams are the coordinates of women of the land on which they are still faced with a fundamental question: Is being a woman an opportunity or a threat?

Every woman in the world, regardless of her class, race, age, ethnicity, nationality, and religion, has more in common with any other woman than any man. Misogyny and patriarchy are the major barriers against the development of knowledge and women's advancement in society.

Woman plays the main role in her complex life story. This complexity begins when every woman faces a break in her life, such as a divorce, which is the beginning of a new life to build, or cancer, making the word hope more meaningful in life.

A break is actually a beginning, and a woman is a symbol of germination, a fundamental growth that is necessary for every society.

According to the social identity, each woman of Iranian society, the context of family, religion, economy, patriarchy, misogyny, gender discrimination, etc. determines the status of women. A woman is someone who tries with pride, power, and dare to keep all the women of her inside and outside world alive.

To keep the concept of a woman's identity alive, a change in society is required. This collection represents women in Iran, who are continually trying to make the new transformation to keep women's identity alive, regardless of gender, along with the environmental and virtual changes of women and the reduction of misogyny attitudes patriarchy in society.

Andi Arnovitz – Medical Exploration

"There are certain elements of the human form that immediately denote ” female.” The pelvis certainly suggests fertility, the womb, the center of life in its most graphic simplicity. Playing with this form, with bones that feel like lace, with blood that is at once terrifying and beautiful, I draw attention to the female form and its cycles". -Andi Arnovitz
