For his first ever participation at any national level contest, Mohammad Erfanul Hoque, a student of department of Sculpture of Chittagong University, won Honourable Mention Award for the newly introduced installation category, at the ongoing 18th Young Artists’ Art Exhibition-2012.
His award winning work ‘Pariprekkhit’, on display at the National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, features the process of infusion of bad habits in human beings and the trajectory of three stages of life, in a seven minute and 14 seconds video clip, in three segments.
The first segment depicts the growth of bad practices in children through showing a child playing with harmful objects. The second segment depicts the development of the habit of telling lies as well as the involvement of youth with terrorism by the allure of evil forces during adolescence. The final segment of the video art features the regret of an adult for wasting his golden moments in life, by showing the image of an ailing person wearing a mask made of plaster of paris
The background of the video art is occupied with news reports featuring derailed youth and teenage crimes.
‘Since my childhood, various moral degradations in society have made me conscious about finding solutions or searching for the root causes. First of all, I want to emerge as an artist responsible towards the society,’ Erfanul Hoque told New Age.
‘I would like to be a filmmaker. I believe film is the best way to reach most people. I want to express my views and thoughts to the widest range of people. And for this reason I have chosen film.’ Erfanul Hoque explained.
