Pan supari? Longhi? Genji? Jolpai? Ektara? If the world ended tomorrow, which cultural objects would you take with you and which ones will you leave behind?


This new collaboration follows a series of conversations between three London-based visual artists, Saif Osmani, Noémi Zajzon and Jane Dee, whose recent works and on-going research examine and enquire into common questions posed by the Bangladeshi diaspora in the UK.

Intergalactic Desh imagines a Dystopian world, where the earth, engulfed in an apocalyptic disaster has only a fortnight to gather its belongings. Visitors to the gallery space are asked to choose a finite number of objects that define ‘Bangladeshiness’, to include inside a vessel, on course to leave planet earth.  The artists seek to ask: ‘What would you take with you and what will you leave behind?’

The evolvinginteractive installation questions the transformative impacts of historical and geo-political events on the contemporary cultural and social space of this increasingly internationalised minority community.


Join us for a series of workshops to discuss, envision and build the vessel that will take your cultural items into the future.

Workshop dates: 14, 21, 28 February, 12noon. Places are free with limited availability. Email shanghati@yahoo.co.uk or call 07914 119282 to book places.
