(SPACE FOR) TOTAL ANASTROPHES
Dhaka Art Summit, Dhaka
February 2 – 10 2018
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.
