Moving Spirits opens today at Edge gallery

Edge, The Foundation, has organised a contemporary sculpture exhibition titled 'Moving Spirits' by talented sculptor Tejosh Halder Josh, at The Courtyard, Park Heights in Dhanmondi. The show, which opens today at 6pm, will also be exhibited at Edge Gallery, Gulshan simultaneously. Both galleries will remain open every day from 10am to 8pm, until 11August. This is the 11th exhibition organised by Edge, The Foundation.

Tejosh Halder Josh's second solo exhibition, showcasing 82 artworks in three diverse series, showcases a world which is relatively unheard of, and gives us the opportunity to appreciate it as well.

His work reflects his inquisitive mind looking for answers, some of which are materialistic while some others are philosophical. As an insightful contemporary artist, he fills the viewers' vision with wonder and fantasy and keeps us rooted to reality.

'The Run' series is a testament to the creative instinct and the technical prowess of the artist, the human figures are transformed to fish, birds and amorphous beings -- ethereal and playful, and expanding the space of the universe they reside in.

On the other hand, his 'Lines & Space' series is inspired by the silhouettes of rigidity in urban construction and an urge to save the nature, creating an impression which enlightens the viewers.

A completely different line of work, his series 'Love, Shelter, Complexity & Hope' explores forms and shapes in woodcarving and awakens the inner senses. While the 'Wind' series is an attempt to bond two-dimensional works with a third dimension.

Tejosh Halder Josh holds BFA and MFA degrees from the Department of Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Art (FFA), University of Dhaka (DU) and Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan, India respectively. Known for his striking works in bronze and in wood, Josh is adept in many mediums including fiber glass, clay, terracotta and welding.

He bagged the prestigious Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin Gold Medal and Media Best Awards from FFA, DU. He is the youngest recipient of the 2017 Honourable Mention Award for his sculpture titled 'Serious Discussion' at the 12th Asian Art Biennale, Bangladesh. Josh's work strives to convey a strong message towards building a better society.

Edge, The Foundation is a non-profit platform engaging in philanthropy and the promotion of arts. It seeks to foster cultural appreciation through knowledge-sharing and showcasing of talent.
