A solo sculpture exhibition, “Duets in Metal and Water,” is being held at the British Council, Bangladesh.

The 14-day exhibition features a series of scrap metal sculptures by Arham Ul Huq Chowdhury.

The displayed sculptures are made of leftovers collected from various Centres for the Rehabilitation of The Paralysed (CRP). These leftover metals are from wheelchairs, stretcher trolleys, and crutches.

One of the aims of the exhibition is to empower people with disabilities and to showcase the concealed possibilities of scrap products people throw away as leftovers every day.

The funds raised from the fountain exhibition will go to the welfare funds of the CRP.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Alison Blake, British High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Andrew Newton, Deputy Director, British Council Bangladesh, and Valerie Taylor, Founder of Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP).

Chairmen and directors of popular art galleries and cultural centres, founders and chief-coordinators of organizations who work with people with disabilities, artists and freelancers, participants from CRP, strategic partners of the British Council, and media representatives, were also present at the inaugural ceremony.

Beginning on February 22, the exhibition will continue till March 7, at British Council on Fuller Road.
