‘Concept of space and Rabindranath Tagore’

‘Concept of space and Rabindranath Tagore’

Art & Culture Report :
In conjunction with the second Dhaka Art Summit a solo photography exhibition titled ‘Concepts of Space and Rabindranath Tagore’ presented by reputed Indian photographer Samit Das is going on at the Galerie Zoom of the Alliance Francaise de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area now.
Tagore’s concept of space and architecture is a vast area of exploration and it is extremely difficult to express it through just a few visuals within a limited space in its entire entirety.  
This exhibition is a small effort to throw light on the immense vastness that this subject covers. For the last 15 years of his life Samit Das has been deeply involved with this subject-matter trying to explore the details, actively engaging with the enormous amount of materials left behind, which would probably take many years to comprehend.
His journey with his subject matter began around 1993 when he started to explore it as a part of his MA dissertation in 1996.
Later on, his relationship with this topic extended to various other directions.
Within a very limited number of visuals, Samit Das has tried to come up with a brief presentation of Tagore’s idea of space and architecture through the architecture of Santiniketan.
Here the journey begins from collate Jorasanko house and moves through Bangladesh to conclude in Santiniketan.
Photographer Samit Das hopes that the viewers can get the opportunity to share some of this insightful journey through a selection of photos and brief text in this presentation.
The exhibition will continue till February 12. n
