Actress-artist Bipasha Hayat returned to Dhaka on Wednesday after attending her solo show at LVS Gallery in Korean capital Seoul.
This is her second solo show abroad but seventh solo in her whole career, Bipasha told New Age adding that in January she held another solo in Rome, capital of Italy.
‘I displayed 25 artworks on different mediums at the show organised at Gallery LVS located in Gangnam, Seoul. The show, scheduled to be held from December 14 to December 31, has been extended for two more weeks,’ Bipasha said.
‘During my stay in Seoul, I found that large numbers of visitors were coming to the show every day and they could communicate well with my works featuring psychological journey,’ she added.
She said she works on themes based on memories. ‘Without any memory, we are nothing’, she said.
Bipasha said famous Korean artist and critic Yoon Jin-sup promoted her in Seoul. ‘He saw my works when he visited Dhaka last December as a jurist of the 17th edition of Asian Art Biennale and praised my work a lot. I also won the Honourable Mention at the biennale. Since then we continued negotiations to materialise the plan of holding my solo in Seoul,’ Bipaha said.
She said that she also took part in Seoul International Art Festival along with five other Bangladeshi artists. ‘Co-incidentally, the festival was also organised in December. So I could participate in both of the events in a row,’ Bipasha said.
Bipasha, who completed her MFA in paintings from Faculty of Fine Arts of Dhaka University, said she is now busy with her painting career only and does not give much attention to acting in teleplays or writing teleplays.
‘I’m busy only with paintings these days and cannot manage time to write plays. And I do not act in teleplays due to scarcity of quality scripts,’ Bipasha said.
Bipasha won national film award for her acting in Humayun Ahmed’s liberation war-based film Aguner Parashmoni (1994). She also received several awards for her acting in teleplays.
