The Samdani Art Foundation (SAF) announced the shortlist for the fourth biennial Samdani Art Award which will be given out at the Dhaka Art Summit to be held in February 2018, reports UNB. SAF made the disclosure issuing a press release recently.
The full list of the finalists is Ahmed Rasel from Barisal, Aprita Singh Lopa from Kishoreganj, Asfika Rahman from Dhaka, Debasish Shom from Bagerhat, Marzia Farhana from Dhaka, Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury from Noakhali, Opper Zaman from Dhaka, Palash Bhattacharjee from Chittagong, Rakib Ahmed from Netrakona, Reetu Sattar from Dhaka and Sabbir Alam from Kushtia.
The finalists for the prize will receive a three-month residency at the Delfina Foundation in London.
The finalists were picked up from a larger pool of semi-finalists by Swiss Institute director Simon Castets, who will curate a show with all of the eleven finalists during the Dhaka Art Summit.
From this pool, the final winner will be selected by a board consisting of artists Sheela Gowda, Runa Islam, Subodh Gupta, and Mona Hatoum chaired by Delfina Foundation director Aaron Cezar.
Among the finalists, Ahmed Rasel is a faculty member of the Dhaka-based photography institute, Counter Photo. He earned a masters degree in Bengali Literature from the University of Dhaka (2013) with the ambition of becoming a poet, before realising that photography could better blend his poetic feelings with his inner vision, memory, and personal history.
Rasel is a visual storyteller.
He presents the world as a continuation of the great human story, intertwined with his personal experiences, believing that every story forms part of our overall world history and that every human being is a historical element.
His work has been published in Trouw, Private Magazine, F-stop Magazine, and The Daily Independent, among others, and exhibited in photo festivals in Bangladesh and India.
The award aims to support, promote, and highlight Bangladeshi contemporary art and was created to honour one talented emerging Bangladeshi artist between the ages of 22 and 40.unb
