Dhali Al Mamoon
Dhali Al Mamoon (b. 1958, Chandpur, Bangladesh) is a Bangladeshi artist and art educator based in Chittagong. His drawings, paintings, kinetic sculptures and installations explore issues of knowledge, history and identity. Mamoon often constructs complex, melodramatic experiences that are allegorical in effect and often cast new light on the understanding of memory in his homeland.
Recent solo exhibitions of Mamoon’s works include Time, Coincidence and History (Bengal Gallery of Fine Arts, Dhaka, 2016) and Aponayon/ Elimination (Bengal Art Lounge, Dhaka, 2014). In 2013, his works were presented in the Bangladesh Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia. Mamoon was awarded with the Grand Prize at the 12th Asian Art Biennale, Bangladesh (2006). His works have been collected by the Bangladesh National Museum; Bengal Foundation, Bangladesh; Ibsen Museum, Norway; Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan amongst several other public and private collections.
