Tarun Ghosh, artist, curator, film-maker: Dhaka Bangladesh

Exploring each others' countries and cultures,
five artists from Bangladesh, India, Zimbabwe
and the UK, working with rickshaws, folk art,
textiles, paper and metal, make sense of their
journeys through residencies and an exhibition
for the V&A Museum of Childhood and The
Harley Gallery.

The work they have produced represents their
curiosity and fascination for the unfamiliar
encountered within and around museum
collections, as well as their involvement with
young people from a mix of cultural roots in
the UK.
