Exhibition: The Cycle of Care by Paraa
Thursday 3 – Sunday 27 November, Brady Arts Centre
This exhibition presents a series of portraits drawn by Ruhul Abdin of children and women from Dhaka’s Kamalapur Railway Station. It is focused around the vulnerable urban children whom have been supported by local charity LEEDO. This ties in with the overarching themes and aims of Paraa’s work with an emphasis on how the built environment impacts on the lives of those around and within its structures. This explores the role of art and architecture on provision of care and the juxtapostions between the static cityscape and with its closed and open spaces, and the transience of those human lives with which it interacts.
One of the projects portrayed, the Garden Project, has been the creation of a space where children can perform. It recognises the importance of performance, play, art and drama in the lives of the children. Paraa deployed multiple methods of engagement over time, working with students, young children, local artisans and others to ensure that the care of the child and their potential wellbeing is paramount. www.paraa.org.uk
