Ranu Mukherjee makes bodies of work and large scale installations by combining drawing, painting and print on fabric or paper alongside video, animation and choreography. Her work is marked by a deliberate use of saturated color, layering or collision of time frames, fragmentation and bodily materiality. Her art evokes questions of visibility and abstraction, intensified by the algorithmic distribution of news images and information.
