Rina Banerjee, ‘See her beak a coppery bill, her pointed puncture with black horn waiting in edges of river among stones and ocean pearls, her coarse curls sleeps outside of home, outside of culture, in open air, feel her tire without tone of muscle in effortless slumber and in watery sheets her many sections fold and file in, cooling her throat  with waters from below bearing new disguises no one yet knows be transformed.’, 2017, Galerie Nathalie Obadia

Rina Banerjee
Indian, b. 1963

New York–based Indian artist Rina Banerjee's iridescent sculptural installations and dreamy, exotically colored drawings and paintings of birds, beasts, and demigods explore fusions of materials and cultures. Her work typically incorporates a wide range of objects and media, including taxidermy alligators, wooden cots, ostrich eggs, light bulbs, umbrellas, saris, pigments, shells, and feathers. Banerjee has called her practice an examination of diasporas and journeys, “specific colonial moments that reinvent place and identity.” Synthesizing mythology, religion, anthropology, and fairy tales, she is equally informed by Western culture and Eastern tradition, particularly Tibetan, Himalayan, and Indian art.
