The installation by Iranian artist Dorsa Asadi at the Green Art Gallery is motivated by her experiences during the recent unrest in her country and tells the tale of rebellion and disruption. The two main characters of the story, Elle and Belle, have appeared frequently in Asadi's body of work. By holding faceless pink men over fires, they act as protectors of feminine energy and autonomy while demolishing patriarchal structures.

The Leila Heller Gallery Dubai is hosting not one, but two art exhibitions this month. Perpetual Identities, a solo show by Beirut-based multimedia artist Katya A. Traboulsi, pays homage to the powerful force of cultural identity. Each piece is handcrafted and titled with the name of the artisan's home country. The objects are made of various materials such as ceramics, resin, porcelain, wood, and iron. The unique design of the mortar shell is inspired by her personal experience during the Lebanese Civil War when she received an empty sleeve of a mortar shell as a birthday present. It aims to represent the power of cultural influence and how no war can erase its imprint.

The second exhibition is a collection of works by the Turkish artist Melis Buyruk which is titled The Bloom Room. It includes an entirely new set of installations. The objects depict humanity's interaction with nature. Expect to see creatures in unusual settings made up of plant and animal parts fused with human body parts. The sculptures are an examination of the significance of man's role in the life cycle, as well as how disorder must be welcomed positively with a holistic worldview.
