Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A solo exhibition of scrap metal
sculpture titled ‘Hard Emotions’
by Arhamul Huq Chowdhury is going on at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s
Dhanmondi area now.
The exhibition was jointly inaugurated by three physically challenged people. Bruno Plasse, Director of AFD, gave the welcome speech at the inaugural
ceremony and also presided over
the ceremony.
A series of sculptures are on display in the exhibition ‘Hard Emotions’
by Arham Ul Huq 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 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 organisation 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 organisation 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.
Arhamul 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 continue
till October 7.  n
