Dhaka Art Summit, Dhaka

February 2 – 10  2018

Total Anastrophes

Group show curated by Milovan Ferronato with Runa Islam as artistic leader

Reconfigurable bamboo and silk structure assembled for eighth edition of Volcano Extravaganza. Rather than engaging with the epic nature of Stromboli’s landscape – and without the talisman of its active volcano –  the essence of the annual festival was recreated in a new location in Dhaka, Bangladesh; invoking themes of isolation and distance; memory and mysticism; cosmic energy and the violence of nature; improvisation and theatre; and exploring the possibilities of reclaiming the setting within a shifted context.

Tobias Putrih Studio & Workshop

We develop materially ephemeral settings and objects designed to engage utopian ideas in art, architecture and design by incorporating everyday materials and forms of play and participation. From make-shift modifications of public and semi-public spaces—cinemas, a library, galleries—to constructing temporary environments and objects, works are products of precisely specified processes while also responding to their sites. Many of  spaces and objects are activated—meant to be moved and inhabited, privileging play and bodily engagement. Artworks become proposals, maquettes, or models—exploratory assertions of radical possibilities.
