Opening: Delta and Sediment
Delta and Sediment Opening Saturday April 13th at 11 am - 5 pm
In Bangladesh, a delta landscape home to 164 million people, and with a growing capital approaching 20 million, many of our time’s most crucial issues are put to the test. The extensive migration to Dhaka has a direct link to the textile industry and the clothes we wear, a system that affects global warming and Bangladesh directly through violent monsoon rain and rising sea levels that devour its coastal strips. At the same time, Bangladesh is a country rich in diversity and culture. Being in the frontline of global change creates a rapid and dynamic development of independent culture, and especially an exciting contemporary art scene.
With the exhibition Delta and Sediment, Färgfabriken wants to show three expressions from Bangladesh today. In common, they express both a local and a global now, with historical ties to the outside world.
Yasmin Jahan Nupur, Munem Wasif and Suvra Kanti Das are three artists working in Dhaka, which all, in different ways, take the pulse of their country based on their own perspectives and stories.
