What is SheLL Project? She LL project (she will, shell) began in 2009 and is an ongoing international art project made from donated dresses of women and girls that have been sexually assaulted. Each participant is also asked to submit a personal statement as to how the sexual abuse has affected them and this is exhibited with their dresses. At each exhibition there is the opportunity for new participants to donate a dress that will be shown in the next planned exhibition. These dresses and personal statements are powerful representations that evoke healing, prevention and break stereotypes commonly associated with sexual abuse, assault and harassment. They stand symbolically for each woman and force the viewer to reflect on a real person, a real story not a statistic or “stereotypical” image of a woman who is abused. They are powerful symbolic “shells” that encourage women and girls from around the world to come forward and tell their stories. Each individual woman is a link in a chain, as each woman comes forward another woman/girl is strengthened. The goal of She LL project is to travel internationally and flourish to thousands of symbolic dresses exhibited around the world.
