Shehzad Chowdhury & Mahtab Hussain
Dear... Kindest... is the crystallisation of Mahtab Hussain's (UK) and Shehzad Chowdhury’s (BD) collaborative research. A two channel HD video installation, the work marks a turning point for both artists, no longer behind the lens but in front. Performing powerful monologues and working processes to cultural and colonial questions relating to their personal experience of home, belonging, identity, opening up to wider questions around human relationships and collective trauma.
The work builds on their Digital Collaborative project I don’t know you, you don’t know me, originally commissioned by Transforming Narratives in 2020.
