Poems Declined 2014

Dhaka Art Summit, Bangladesh

Through a unique edition unedited book of 1800 unpublished, declined poems collected from poets and publishers in Dhaka, this project acknowledged the language of emotions that is left unrecognized and suppressed by the influence of institutional hierarchy.

Self-correction doodling from the manuscripts projected on the ceiling of the gallery space as shadow drawings executed a sense of self-reliance, self-correction, self-editing and overall an idea of self-recognition of individual struggle for a confident ‘self-voice’.
