We are working with Sarker Protick to produce his first solo exhibition in the UK. The exhibition will bring together multiple bodies of work, including Spaces of Separation (2016-ongoing), a long-term study of the colonial architectural remains that can be found across Bangladesh and West Bengal. Our aim is to create an exhibition that listens to history, contemplating the ever-evolving story of Bangladesh as a place and nation. 

Working with photography, video and sound, Sarker Protick‚Äôs works are built on long-term surveys of Bangladesh. He is drawn to themes such as time passing, the alteration of land and borders, as well as traces of both personal and political histories. Protick is a lecturer at the South Asian Media Institute Pathshala, and co-curator of Chobi Mela, the longest running international photography festival in Asia. As an artist he has received multiple awards and fellowships, including Joop Swart Masterclass, Foam Talent, Light Work Residency, Magnum Foundation Fund and the World Press Photo Award. He is represented by Shrine Empire, Delhi.
