In Promiti Hossain’s work there is conscious articulation of contemporary time and space, where experiences, personal myths and various socio-political tenets sediment her oeuvre. In her current ongoing series of works she is exploring an unconventional material which is goat skin/leather (used for musical instruments), synthetic hair et.al. coming out from certain sensibilities and conceptual intervention into socio-political issues of our time. Skin has a deep connection with the economic, political and social struggle that involves critical trajectories of racism, human trafficking, communal, sexual violence and various other issues that can be traced back in history as well as in the contemporary context. There are many types of taxonomy involved with the skin like the problematic notion of ‘fairness’ often associated with beauty, which is a colonial construct that helped the colonizers to create a hegemonic system of discrimination among the colonized. The skin has its metaphorical as well as analogical trajectories that are associated with human history and still hold an undeniable presence in our reality.
