‘Joloj 3’ underway at AFD

A group painting exhibition titled ‘Joloj 3’ (Aquatic 3) is underway at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.

The inauguration ceremony of the exhibition held on Friday, which was attended by Prime Minister's Media Affairs Adviser Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury as the chief guest. Eminent sculptor Professor Hamiduzzaman Khan and chief executive officer of amadabazaar.com Ferdous Khan also attended the event.

‘Joloj’ is an endeavour by artists Al-Akhir Sarker, Bishan Bhakta, Golam Moshiur Rahman Choudhury, Md Azmal Uddin, Sadek Ahmed and Shaymal Biswas.

The third edition of ‘Joloj’ continues the series of exhibitions with a central theme of ‘the water around us’ that started in 2015.

Water is ubiquitous in Bangladesh. To the untrained eye, layers and layers of bricks and concrete, man-made mundane monuments of melancholy may seem arid or ‘waterless’, but beneath it all, water flows, cascades, swirls and streams and calls out to every person — to wet their feet in it. Even the indolent ones cannot help but respond to that call when rainy season happens, when a limpid pond as if by magic emerges amid greenery, or when thousands and thousands of rivers of Bangladesh make it almost impossible to not embrace water and its lustral beauty.

Golam Moshiur’s paintings show the struggle of life. The agony of human being which he portrays in his artworks may make a long impact to the visitor’s mind. Bishan’s artworks are deeply attached with the nature. He usually paints his thought and likes to expose what he loves. Al- Akhir Sarker wanted to dig out his inner feelings, very personal and free feelings, at the same time the very traditional feelings of Bengali people in his paintings. Sadek always wants to express his emotion with light and shade and lost city is the subject of his painting. Md. Azmal Uddin enjoys exploring duality (the internal and external feeling of human being)in his painting. Shamol Bishwas surroundings, the memories he nurtures, the flora and fauna, the urban life everything influences the art and colour he projects in his canvas.

The exhibition is open to all till 28 November 2017 in La Galerie of AFD and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to12pm and 5pm to 8pm). Closed on Sunday.
