Event excerpt

On display are photographs and the first ever VR, non-animated feature-length film that delve into the disappearance of the artist’s mother in 1969, recreating incidents that unfolded thereafter.

Through the film and the photographs on view, the artist seeks to delve deep into the darkest recesses of his family’s history and examine the various enmeshed narratives by recounting a telling episode. The work also offers an insight into how imagination, folklore and superstition supplant the lack of a coherent narrative when memory fails to navigate the scarred terrains of an obscure past. It evocatively brings alive a time, torn asunder by the impending personal and political upheaval around the Bangladesh Liberation War and reflects on how collective memory becomes instrumental in substantiating a tale mired with irreparable losses and brutal chronicles.
