BORIS ELDAGSEN & TANVIR TAOLAD
THE OTHER SIDE
AN EXPEDITION INTO THE MEMORY OF MANKIND
In the psychology of the mind, the Other refers to the unconscious side, to silence, insanity and God.
With this work Berlin-based artist Boris Eldagsen and Dhaka-based artist Tanvir Taolad travel to outer limits: inside & outside, here & beyond, conscious & unconscious, heaven & hell. Their collaboration brings together Western and Eastern approaches of defining the deep unknown: Us. A blood drop in space.
Working purely from their archives, Eldagsen & Taolad use their experimental skills of fusing and condensing photographs to create images that dig deeper into the human condition. This is not a remix. It is an expedition into the memory of mankind, haunted by hope.
2019, THE OTHER SIDE got shortlisted for Gomma Grant and Prix Voies Off.

In a coming together of eastern and western approach of defining the unknown, these images are deeply experimental.
An amalgamation of thoughts.
