Yasmin Jahan Nupur
Yasmin Jahan Nupur (b. 1979 in Chittagong, Bangladesh, lives and works in Dhaka, Bangladesh) holds an MFA in paintings from Chittagong University in Bangladesh. She is a visual and performance artist whose work is influenced by the ecological and community driven aspects of life. Depicting human relationships from various points of view, her work explores class distinctions and the social discrepancies people face, particularly women and migrants of South Asia, in an effort to increase understanding between people of different backgrounds. Her recent work has engaged deeply with architecture, and the idea of physical and social constructs affecting her psyche. She is a member of Britto Arts Trust in Bangladesh, and in 2015 was invited to attend a performance residency at the Delfina Foundation in London. Her work has featured in exhibitions internationally, including: Beyond Borders, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester (2017); the Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa (2016); the Bangladesh Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale (2013); and the Asian Art Biennale, Dhaka (2013, 2008), receiving the Honourable Mention Award for her inclusion in both editions. From 2012 to 2018, she participated at Dhaka Art Summit. Currently, her recent body of works are showing at Exhibit 320 gallery in New Delhi.
