Nupur addresses generation gapCultural Correspondent
Talented artist Yasmin Jahan Nupur displayed an installation, In the Wave of the Dream, at the 2nd Dhaka Art Summit held at the National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
In addition, the experimental artist staged a performance titled Sat on a Chair in the performance arts section, curated by Mahbubur Rahman, where artists from the South Asian region presented diverse theme based performances.
‘I didn’t do any movement rather I just sat on a high chair during the performance. In fact, the silence and stagnancy created a dialogue with the audience,’ Nupur told New Age on her performance.
And the experimental artist focused on the ‘generation gap’ issue through her installation where Nupur has stitched words in English on two jamdani sarees placed along with some embroidered works created by her mother a long time ago. ‘Through the artwork, I wanted to compare and contrast my mother’s time with my time,’ Nupur said.
Nupur is delighted to be a part of Dhaka Art Summit. ‘Participating at the summit, I got the chance to meet different international artists whose works I only saw on the Internet. It is a rare opportunity to come across such prominent artists,’ Nupur said.
‘The summit will also help the talented artists to get international exposure,’ Nupur added.
Yasmin Jahan Nupur earlier had displayed her works in different galleries in Netherlands, Italy, China, Pakistan, Mauritius, Egypt and Korea.
Her work was displayed in the Bangladesh pavilion of the 55th Venice Biennale. Nupur won the honorable mention award on two occasions in the 13th and 15th Asian Art Biennale.
She is a member of the Britto Arts Trust.
