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, followed by THE OTHER SIDE [Hope vs Fear] at Kochi-Muziris Biennale / Water Town Fest 2018/19. THE OTHER SIDE [Red] got shortlisted for Gomma Grant and Prix Voies Off 2019.
