A London - Sylhet dialogue


Did Tony Blair help kill the holy Gajar fish at Shah Jalal's shrine? Is the 'neo-Islam' of England the true face of Islam? Can we train our minds to create a hybrid language for the whole of humanity?

Mystical creatures emerge from underground, man-made wars force masses to coexist, new narratives shift physical landscapes, national psyches clash?

This latest set of paintings responds to the site specific and investigates ongoing cross-cultural dialogue between Sylhet (north-east Bangladesh) and London with references to the London Sufi movement and Baul traditions.

Saif Osmani (St. Martin's/ Chelsea) is a spatial designer and visual artist practicing in London.
