‘CENSORED’ exhibition by Every Body’s Story

An exhi­bi­tion of 300 gold­en nip­ple casts of women and non-bina­ry peo­ple, explor­ing nip­ple cen­sor­ship and unwant­ed sexualisation.

150 women and non-binary people have had molds of their nipples made, to then be cast in golden Jesmonite by body casting artist Ellen Downes. Their golden nipples will be exhibited alongside their experiences.

"CENSORED" will showcase a collection of 300 golden nipple casts created by Ellen Downes, founder of Every Body's Story. The nipple casts will line the walls of Centrespace Gallery from 15th-20th September and create a powerful installation challenging censorship and celebrating nipple diversity.

This exhibit explores topics of censorship, public breastfeeding, and sexual harassment.

The exhibition will be ticketed (starting from £3), open to the public 10 AM-6 PM and there will be (separately ticketed) evening events in the gallery space.

A ‘CENSORED’ book will accompany the exhibit featuring photographs of the casts and the experiences of the 150 participants for the project.


*All events will be held at the gallery after the exhibition has closed to the public, attendees will be surrounded by golden casts.
