This visuals in this work show a black ant trapped/saved within a transparent glass. The audio that plays in the background is an Arabic recitation of the Quran, the book of prayers in Islam.
This work stimulates the idea of religion within the minds of people familiar with Islam. It is directed to those who consider it to be a tool of safety and righteousness and to those who think the entire opposite of it.
The message of this work heavily depends on the audience and their personal belief. While interacting with the perplex role of religion in our society, it is also an attempt to focus on the important part the audience plays towards the completion of an artwork.
The video art was produced in collaboration with Artist Kazi Tahsin Agaz Apurbo for the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh.
