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.
The work premiered at the Indian Photography Festival Hyderabad in September 2018.
Eccentric, powerful and coulourful. Truly a trip to the other side!
