EMK Center launches virtual exhibition ‘Magical Fantasy’
The virtual exhibition titled “Magical Fantasy (Coordination between the hand and the brain)”, organized by EMK Center, was launched on September 5th.
The exhibition illustrating human dependence on technology, machines and their growing loneliness is set against a dark background with light art based on volumes at the front, according to a press release.
Dr Alak Roy, sculptor and teacher from the Bengal Foundation, was present as the guest of honor of the event.
He said: “The talented artists in this exhibition are united by their generation and divided by the uniqueness of their work. An artist has the power to control what he wants to show through his works. These artists expressed their personal perspectives, use up-to-date software, owning the technologies around us and its consequences perfectly. “
The exhibition, composed of works by several emerging artists, will continue until September 30.
“The Magical Fantasy exhibition will open new doors of possibilities in the practice of contemporary visual arts in Bangladesh,” said exhibition project curator Subrata Das.
“Each of the artists participating in this exhibition is one of the most talented and promising visual artists of the young generation of Bangladesh who showcased the characteristics of human beings, the diversity of human life and contemporary situations in some of the ideas that have been turned into symbolic appearances, ”he added.
Contemporary artist and exhibition participant Rasel Kanti Das presented his works based on competing political situations and general scenarios.
Through his works he has shown political turmoil and obstacles to human freedom, the tragedy of Rana Square, human dependence on technologies and the loneliness that surrounds them.
Another artist, Md Joynal Abedin Azad, has produced many constructive works which mainly describe how humans become dependent on machines and technologies; as a result, their emotions are reduced like robots.
Mujahid Musa, sculptor by profession, expressed current situations coupled with personal experiences through his sculptures and his arts.
One of his most beloved works “Territorial Rest, 2020”, which won him the “Probin Jatiyo Charukola Exhibition Award – 2021”, is on display in this exhibition.
Commenting on this work, Mujahid Musa said: “It was during the time when Dhaka City Corporation was killing dogs because of their increasing numbers instead of sheltering them. I was strongly against this act of DCC and I was created this work of art as my expression of protest. “
