The Displaced Language of Mesopotamia
Exhibition November 9 – December 13
An Art at Watson Exhibit in collaboration with Middle East Studies
Part of Middle East Studies workshop "Warzones as Displacement in the Middle East: the Kurdish Case"
This exhibition presents the mysterious stories of Mesopotamian Women. This secret and symbolic language traces to eastern mythology’s influence on how women relate with symbols found in nature. Chosen symbols are designed to create an aesthetic language, woven with and throughout their lives. Women keep these diaries in carpets, body tattoos, and carve them on to stone, to record their place in society, personal stories, and deepest emotions. This aesthetic symbolism will bring you closer to the lives of these women.
