Bio – Reena KALLAT

Reena Kallat (Mumbai)
Reena Saini Kallat (born 1973, Delhi, India) graduated from Sir Jamsetjee Jeejebhoy School of Art, Mumbai in 1996 with a B.F.A. in painting. Her practice – spanning painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation, often incorporates multiple mediums into a single work. She frequently works with officially recorded or registered names of people, objects, and monuments that are lost or have disappeared without a trace, only to get listed as anonymous and forgotten statistics. One of the recurrent motifs in her work is the rubber stamp, used as an object and an imprint, signifying the bureaucratic apparatus, which both confirms and obscures identities. Her work has been widely exhibited across the world in venues such as Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Kennedy Centre, Washington; Saatchi Gallery, London;SESC Pompeia and SESC Belenzino in Sao Paulo; Goteborgs Konsthall, Sweden; Helsinki City Art Museum, Finland; National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts;Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul;Arken Museum in Denmark; Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo; Casa Asia, Madrid and Barcelona; ZKM Karlsruhe in Germany Campbelltown Arts Centre, Sydney; Hangar Bicocca, Milan; Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai;IVAM Museum, Spain; Busan MOMA; Kulturhuset, Stockholm; Chicago Cultural Centre amongst many others while closer home she’s shown at the Dr. Bhaudaji Lad Museum and the NGMA, Mumbai.
