Bindu Bisharga

In response to the success of the project Immensity, Bindu Bisharga was a curatorial project by Bishwajit Goshwami that took place during the 18th Asian Art Biennale at Shilpakala Academy. It was one of the first curatorial projects in Asian Art Biennale.

The curatorial project worked as a platform to showcase the works of emerging artists below 35 where their artistic journey and approaches were prioritized. The artists were selected by the curator himself for the rigorous three-weeklong open studio practice where they were focused to present themselves, their works, and the way they work to the audience in a manner so that the whole curatorial project can play as an interactive portfolio to the audience.

The process started with the workshop in an octagonal gallery managed by Mustapha Khalid Palash. There were 12 participants between whom two of them were from diverse backgrounds. The target was to establish the narrative in such a way to portray the artists themselves and their works – who they are, what they are doing, and how we can enable them to contribute more.

The phrase ‘Bindu-Bisharga’ literally means ‘inkling’; the project was to understand about a very small part of these emerging artists, and to enable us to imagine how many things are remaining to get from them to witness in the future if we can support them.
