(un)seen unfolded as an art-act by way of a three-day commune of artists in the idyllic landscape at Bormi, Gazipur. The initiative was designed to create possibilities to provoke one to break personal boundaries and challenge oneself in ways unexpected.
As means of connecting to the essence of the land, the artists were at liberty to choose their own mediums and approaches. The articulation of their proposed artworks revealed itself in land art, site specific art, performance, and so forth; each output carrying vital signs of one’s communication with what lies beyond, bridging the gap between the seen and the unseen.
(un)seen, will feature multiple channel video projections, high resolution photographs, challenging installation works as well as performances.
The show will be jointly inaugurated by Professor Syed Manzoorul Islam, Department of English and Humanities, University of Liberal Arts, and Mr Liaquat Ali Lucky, Director General, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, on Saturday, 22 June 2019, at 5 PM.
You are cordially invited.
