Dhaka Drawings pt2: Day 3Posted: November 2, 2014
Yesterday we had no electricity across the country for a few hours, this morning I recovered from my jet lag – sleeping heavily. Having compiled a survey report for the Bihari camps, I will read Susan Sontags – Regarding the Pain of Others. This drawing is an attempt to draw music – I don’t particularly like the drawing, but it captures the noise, as opposed to the music, of the generator whirring in the background, as we all waited for the electricity to return… Yes, the audience was mainly expats, and clear that not everybody had turned up due to the crazy day of no electricity. It is on every saturday this month at the Jatra rooftop in Banani, a space for young musicians to pick up the mic, plug in their instrument and play.
