Nabil Rahman

Poet and artist based in New York and Bangladesh, Nabil Rahman has participated in international group exhibitions including the 2018 Dhaka Art Summit in Bangladesh, Experimenter in Kolkata, India and Krinzinger Projekte,Vienna. He has also worked in a curatorial capacity, curating the acclaimed exhibition “Eyes on Bangladesh” in New York in 2014 and assisting on Chobi Mela, Asia’s oldest regularly held biennial of photography held in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Ayesha and Nabil’s residency occurred simultaneously in June 2017 and November 2018. 

Ayesha and Nabil experimented with various materials and medium available within Las Casas workshop, respectively. Ayesha primarily focused on drawing and tile making whereas Nabil collected found material to create sculptures. They displayed their work in an Open Studio event for the craftsmen and staff of Las Casas Fiipinas de Acuzar. 

They returned November 2018 to continue their production for an exhibition at Bap Outpost in Makati. Ayesha’s drawings are an investigation into the rudiments of form through architectural constructions, often derivative of the landscape. Counter tendencies of movement and stability are also evident as an attempt to generate emptiness by filling up the surface. Through other elemental gestures and implications of plotting, measuring and erasure, merging and filling in, Ayesha makes whole, an otherwise fractured image.
