Bangladesh represented at Kathmandu Triennale

Marking the Independence Day of Bangladesh, Bengal Foundation’s exhibition titled ‘Upheavals’ has been inaugurated on March 26 at the ongoing Kathmandu Triennale 2017 at the Park Gallery, Lalitpur, Nepal. Ambassador of Bangladesh to Nepal Mashfee Binte Shams and Kathmandu Triennale Founder & Chair Sangeeta Thapa jointly inaugurated the exhibition while veteran artist Mustafa Zaman spoke on behalf of the participating artists during the inaugural ceremony.
An exhibition exploring contemporary Bangladesh through the eyes of eight artists of the country titled ‘Upheavals’ will run from March 26 to April 9.
‘Upheavals’ examines the ambiguous power of change through three generations of artists from Bangladesh. The notion of transformation carries a potent paradox, one that pits the aspiration – where the old can be subsumed in a new, bettered state – against the sinister – through which what initially was is either destroyed or no longer recognisable. As a country, as an idea, Bangladesh provides a unique ground to discuss this ambiguity.
A few artworks in the exhibition allude to the quick succession of departures and disruptions that have characterised Bangladesh’s recent history. Others hint at the radical evolution that has profoundly impacted the way its people live and think in the past decades. If ‘Upheavals’ pencils a landscape in perpetual motion, it leaves open the question of the destination. The participating artists are-- Dhali Al Mamoon, Shishir Bhattacharjee, Dilara Begum Jolly, Mustafa Zaman, Promotesh Das Pulak, Razib Datta, Zihan Karim and Marzia Farhana.
