A painting exhibition titled "Obsession" has begun at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka.
The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held on Friday, said a press release.
Prof Jamal Ahmed, Department of Drawing and Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka graced the occasion as chief guest while Mr MK Aaref, director, Edward M Kennedy Center ( EMK Center) joined the inaugural session as guest of honour.
This exhibition is all about a journey. The journey begins within the artists-- Sayed Fida Hossain and Sultan Ishtiaque-- themselves and then through their dreams, memories, perception, and feelings amid the urban life, the journey continues on.
The journey acquires a voice of its own and tells a story of being obsessed with the daily happenings.
Bound by the mechanical life of tiresome drudgery, the journey reveals about the resultant suffocation.
Artists Sayed Fida Hossain and Sultan Ishtiaque believe that the inner existence that defines the journeyer does not want to be strangled by this suffocation, and instead want to get obsessed with nature and be emancipated from the shackles of ennui.
The exhibition will be open to all until August 30.
Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday (9:00 am to 12: 00 noon and 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm). Closed :Sunday.
