Carnival of grotesque

The walls of artist-run space, Kalakendra, host artist Nisar Hossain's drawings and prints this month. Part of the third instalment of the gallery's “Drawing and Thinking” series, Bikargrostho Shomoyer Roikhik Boyan (Linear Text of a Delirious Time), curated by Wakilur Rahman, opened on June 30, 2018 in the presence of special guest, artist Rafikun Nabi. Notable artists such as Sheikh Afzal, Abul Barq Alvi, Shishir Bhattacharjee, and Rashid Amin were also present at the event.

They are structured by the communion-seeking mind rather than originating from contemplation or critical reflection on real events.
