Hard Emotions begins at AFD

Lastnewsbd, 25Sep, Dhaka:
A solo exhibition of scrap metal sculpture titled Hard Emotions by Arhamul Huq Chowdhury begun at La Galerie at Alliance Française de Dhaka.

The Inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held on 23 September.

The exhibition was jointly inaugurated by three physically challenged people.

Mr Bruno Plasse, Director of Alliance Française de Dhaka welcomed the distinguished guests and presided over the opening ceremony.

A series of sculptures will be presented in an exhibition entitled ‘Hard Emotions’ by ArhamUlHuq Chowdhury, the works are done at the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) in Savar. A rehabilitation centre where various mobility aids including wheelchairs, stretcher trolleys and crutches are made for the physically disabled treated there. The sculptures are made from the off cuts and broken leftovers from these devices. Each piece carries an intense emotional juxtaposition and at times looks at the society and its systems in a rather comical way. The artist held a similar type of exhibition entitled ‘From the Ashes’ at the Bengal Gallery in 2005.

The artist is trained in anthropology and held various solo exhibitions in different genre, pioneering in Furniture, Bangla Calligraphy, natural dye and Bonsai to name a few. A volunteer for more than 16 years in this organization founded by Ms. Valerie Taylor in 1979, who had been working since 1969 in this part of the world in the field of disability.

CRP is a broad spectrum organization working in various fields of disability especially spinal cord injury where even the poorest of the poor receive treatment, rehabilitation and vocational training. This charitable organization will receive all the proceeds from the exhibition, from all participants, including the host-venue, the artist’s agent and the artist himself.

A great deal of emotion has been poured into each work and it is to be hoped that its message will be conveyed to each visitor at the exhibition.ArhamulHuq Chowdhury holds a root of an architectural anthropology background which is why, his work is always much into human and its structures. Part of the reason is his individuality that inspires him to pay heed to others.

The exhibition will be open to all till 7 October at La Galerie in Alliance Française de Dhaka. The exhibition will be open from Monday to Thursday at about 3:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday (9:00am to12:00pm and 5:00pm to 8:00pm).

However, the exhibition will be closed on Sunday.
