Ranu Mukherjee
Since 2010
Works in San Francisco United States of America

Ranu Mukherjee is a multi-disciplinary artist making hybrid films, drawings, prints and collaborative public projects. Her works refer to encounters with embodiment, ecology and the unknown, exploring excessive dimensions of information and narrative, and material conditions brought on by global capitalism. They are composed via an accumulation of documented, collected and fabricated source material, employing collage to think about edges and point to what happens where things meet.

Ranu has had numerous exhibitions and screenings internationally. Recently, she was the featured artist in Noma gallery’s Videohole, received a Kala Fellowship Award and completed Tender Transmissions, a collaborative audio/radio project for the public art project Wonderland. In a previous life she lived in London, making work as part of the collaborative artist orphan drift. Exhibition and screening venues include Cabinet Gallery, Tate Modern, Barbican Center, Beaconsfield, and ICA, London; Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo; Barbara Thumm, Berlin; The Apartment, Helen Pitt and Artspeak, Vancouver; Bang, Capetown, Galeria AFA, Santiago, and Noma Gallery, Luggage Store Annex, YBCA, the Lab, New Langton, Climate Theatre, Studio for Urban Projects and The Spare Room Project San Francisco; and in the Raindance and Oberhausen International Film Festivals.

Ranu is currently an adjunct professor on the MFA program at the California College of the Arts. She has 3 year old triplets and is trying to grow tentacles.
