Sadia Marium dreamed of being a filmmaker, found herself as a Merchandiser and presently works as an independent photographer based in Dhaka. Sadia’s practice pollinates with the process of creating photographs, video and alternative printing methods. ‘Intrusion’ intrigues her the most. In her docufictional work “Days Untitled”, she looked into how personal and hidden memories can be presented in public domain. Ordinary characters, unremarkable memories, spaces and objects are the protagonists of her works to trace the overlap of reality & fiction, private & public. Clichés, social codes and noise are repetitively dissected, questioned and encountered through Sadia’s works. To illustrate the violence of sensualisation, complexity of human body, perplexity of time and denseness; she exposes confrontation, imbalance and dichotomy in subtle, indecisive & sometimes in repetitive manner. Her photography series may appear as a fragment of a scene from a motion film, irrelevant, banal however these are connected and offers a discontent feeling.
After her Bachelors in Marketing, Sadia studied Professional Photography at Pathshala South Asian Media Institute, Dhaka, Bangladesh and now teaching at the same institute. She aspires to become a stand up comedian. She participated in various group exhibition like: “ERROR” in Britto Arts & Trusts on January 2016 Dhaka, Bangladesh,“Days Untitled” was exhibited in Chobi Mela VIII (2015) Dhaka, Bangladesh, “The Interior, The Ordinary Interior” exhibited in Kotti Shop- “Magnetische Felder” (May 2016) Kottbusser Tör, Berlin, Germany, “From A Barren Land” in the slideshow of 10th Angkor Photo Festival (2014), Cambodia.
