We chitchat a bit about the complexities of academic options for teenagers and move to viewing an upcoming work when Syed mentions that she is looking forward to the Dhaka Art Summit. An image of the historic Lawrence Gardens, a ‘No Parking’ sign, Phool mat toriay (do not pluck the flowers) and a black bird contribute another spectrum of meanings, elaborated by the artist in context to blackbirding/slave trade and more, all composed on a white quilt.
