Description :

Gallery Art & Aesthetic welcome you to an exhibition of laser etchings on straw and giclee prints by Shahidul Alam. Kalpana’s Warrior’s is a  photography exhibition by well known Bangladeshi photographer, writer and activist Shahidul Alam in India.

Kalpana Chakma was a fiery, courageous young indigenous woman of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh. Twenty years ago, she dared to demand her rights, spoke out against military occupation and harassment by her own country’s army. She had insisted that, as a citizen of a free nation, she too needed to be treated as an equal. Then, in the early hours of 12 June 1996, she was abducted at gunpoint by the Bangladesh military. She never returned. The principal accused, Lieutenant Ferdous, has never been questioned by the police.

Almost two decades later, Shahidul Alam created Kalpana’s Warriors. The exhibition will show images symbolizing the conflict, the Kaptai Lake, which led to the displacement of the hill people, the new homes of Bangali settlers, and an old typewriter from the party meeting room as well as symbols of occupation. The last known photograph of Kalpana Chakma, surrounded by words was taken from her diary.

The show was inaugurated at the Drik Gallery, the only gallery in Bangladesh, prepared to speak out against the military, on the 12th June 2015, nineteen years after her abduction. It was later shown at the Dali Festival in China where it was awarded the “Best Exhibit” prize.
