All three artists received their Bachelor of Fine Arts from Chittagong University. The 41 works on display explore the art of creating new ideas in the light of the relationship between the human body and the object, adapting to these ambient conditions.

Rasel has always been fascinated by human characteristics. “I am curious about the different forms and positions of human life introduced by social and political contexts. Through my work, I try to express the suffering of people and the environment to represent the symbolic appearance of contemporary situations, ”he explained.

Most of his works on display are part of two series, “Situation” and “Invisible”. They try to reveal the politics that revolve around power. “Situation” presents a descriptive analysis of socio-political scenarios while “Invisible” uses metaphors to shed light on similar issues.

Joynal’s series, “Real Unreal”, highlights the relationship between a human and their inner emotions. The main theme of his work revolves around how human emotions are transformed into mechanical elements. “In this era of modernity, we live with different types of instruments and sometimes we forget our emotions, our feelings, our existence in the midst of this mechanical chaos,” he explained.

Mujahidul’s work is linked to his own experience of his environment, which juxtaposes between reality and abstraction. His exhibited works describe the socio-physical position of the human body and attempt to present the human body beyond its external form.

“I brought to light the cosmopolitan robotic way of life, where people yearn to go back to their roots, and how in the rush of life people miss out on the innocence of nature. All of these ideas converge and contribute to the development of traditional patterns, he said. Drawing inspiration from traditional motifs, he gave new depth to ancient art forms while retaining their originality.

The virtual exhibit is available to viewers on the EMK Center website until September 30, 2021.
