Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury was born in Bangladesh and is an interdisciplinary artist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and Richmond, USA. He attended the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, for his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Intuition, imagination, and vision intertwine as the work progresses, starting with collecting discarded objects and leftovers and taking inspiration from content and topics in the immediate surroundings. Playing with different languages and incorporating a wide variety of forms ranging from installation, assemblage, movement, video, collage, sculpture, existing footage, and text, the work creates spaces with still and moving content, archived and contemporary imagery, all of which conjure up a multifaceted artistic universe in a hybrid form. It becomes a space of total sculpture where every single object contains individual narratives and an overall story and reveals a poetic gesture of its own. Thus, the scene recalls the web and connectivity of total magnetic force and ecology among human/non-human entities.
