故郷インドのコルカタを離れ、現在はニューヨークを拠点に活動するリナ・バネルジーは、ポストコロニアル的ディアスポラの代表とも言えるアーティストです。バネルジーが作る作品は、自身の出自を反映するかのように多面的であるとともに、繊細かつ力強く、西洋と東洋の境界を溶解させうる力を持っています。また、彫刻においても絵画においても、コラージュの技法を用いて異なる世界をひとつのフレームに共存させることで、多様なものが強く絡み合う都市の様子を的確に表現しています。彫刻には様々な素材が用いられていますが、バネルジーはストリートマーケットで容易に見つけられそうなそれらを、どこから来たものなのか考えながら選び取ります。そうして選ばれた羽根、テキスタイル、樹脂製の角、ビーズ、傘等は、人類学や民族誌学、神話、そしてインドのディアスポラなどを示唆します。バネルジーは、まずレディメイドである素材を解体し、それらをハンドメイドによって再構築することで、都市、ポストコロニアリズム、ディアスポラといった自身の属性の優れたメタファーを作り出すのです。

One of the foremost artists of the post-colonial diaspora, Rina Banerjee's work is intricate and enchanting. Having grown up in mixed cultural communities as far apart as Kolkata and New York City, Banerjee's multi-faceted creations fuse the boundaries between East and West. There is a thoughtful sensitivity in the multiple materials that Banerjee uses in her work. Be it sculpture or painting, through the technique of collage, Banerjee is able to appropriately represent the density of the urban experience by suggesting disparate phenomena to coexist within the same framework. Though easily found in street markets, each of the objects used in her sculptures are selected with awareness of their origins. She uses items as varied as feathers, textiles, epoxy horns, beads and umbrellas to explore the material manifestations of anthropology, ethnography, mythologies and the Indian diaspora. Banerjee first dismantles and then "reclaims" their readymade status into the hand-made, reconstructing them into exquisite metaphors for the urban, post-colonial, expatriated community of which she is a part. This exhibition represents a cross-section of this fascinating body of research and work.

Born in Kolkata, India in 1963, Rina Banerjee is currently based in New York City. She completed her MFA in painting at Yale University School of Art, where she won several prestigious awards. She has been featured at "Rina Banerjee: Make Me a Summary of the World" Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts,Philadelphia(2019), Busan Biennale F1963 (KISWIRE Suyeong Factory), Busan (2016), "Greater New York" curated by Klaus Biesenbach, MOMA P.S. 1, New York (2015, 2005), the 55th Venice Biennale Venice, White Light/White Heat, Berengo Studio, Murano Glass Project, Curated by James Putnam (2013), the 7th Asia Pacific Triennale of Contemporary Art Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane (2012), Yokohama Triennial - Our Magic Hour, BankART 1929, Yokohama (2011) and the Whitney Biennial , Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2000).

芮娜‧芭内姬(Rina Banerjee) 是后殖民族裔离散议题最重要的艺术家之一,她的作品错综复杂、令人着迷。芭内姬成长于印度混合文化的社区加尔各答,现今以纽约为据点活跃于艺术界。其具多面性的作品反映出宛如艺术家自身般地刚柔兼并、东西融合。无论是雕刻或是绘画,芭内姬透过拼贴的技法,使相异世界共存于同一画面中,恰当地呈现出城市生活体验的密度感。芭内姬于雕刻创作时所使用的各式媒材,尽管是在传统市场中容易找到的物件,却都是艺术家根据产地而有意选择。艺术家运用羽毛、织品、树脂制动物角、珠子、雨伞等各种物件以探索人类学、民族志学、神话,甚至是印度侨民问题。芭内姬将现成的媒材分解,藉由手作重塑,将它们重构成对其所属的都市、后殖民、移民社会的精妙隐喻。

芮娜‧芭内姬(Rina Banerjee),1963年出生于印度加尔各答,于耶鲁大学艺术学院取得MFA学位,现居纽约。
