Kajoli Ilojak takes as her inspiration her lived experiences as a woman in Bangladesh under the fake dysfunctional power offered by the patriarchal community to women in order to oppress other women. Through stories from her childhood and adult life in Bangladesh, she brings issues of women’s freedom of speech and control over their bodies into a visually grasping performance that only speaks through the body; the body of a woman that has been through much turmoil and is in search of a healing ritual.
About Kajoli Ilojak
Kajoli Llojak is a Bangladeshi artist based in London. Her art engages with the cultural expectations and ideological restrictions that she confronts as a woman, as an artist and as an immigrant. Negotiating barriers of language – as well as the staging of ‘otherness’ – she communicates through her body, gestural mark making, painting and voice.
Kajoli Llojak has previously exhibited her fine art work in London. Her solo performance ‘No Country for Women’ (2017) was supported by a residency at Performance Space and presented at Wake Festival in Folkestone.
