Press Release:

Ranu Mukherjee is a multi-disciplinary artist making hybrid films, works on paper, and collaborative projects. Her recent work investigates the figure of the nomad as well as an imagined personal history of relations between Indian and European/US culture. Generally inspired by encounters with embodiment, ecology, the science-fictional, and the unknown, she explores narrative excess and other material conditions brought on by global capitalism. Mukherjee is a Visiting Faculty in SFAI’s New Genres Department.

Mukherjee has participated in numerous exhibitions and screenings internationally in London, Oslo, Berlin, Oberhausen, Vancouver, Santiago, and Capetown, as well as in the Bay Area. In the 1990s, she co-created the collaborative artist orphan drift in London. She is represented by Frey Norris Gallery where she had her debut solo exhibition in the US in summer 2011. She is also an exhibiting artist in Bay Area Now 6, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through September 2011.
