Rina Banerjee Open Studio
22 & 23 September, 7 October, 10 - 12 October
As part of the opening exhibition, New York based, Calcutta born artist Rina Banerjee will be working in residence at the gallery to create a site-specific art work.
Rina will create a floating Taj Mahal sculpture - a tourist attraction that exists principally in the imagination and a monument to both memory and love.
Rina woudl like to involve visitors and local residents to contribute to her work by inviting groups to visit the monument as it is constructed and donate their own discarded souvenirs, memories and messages. Throughout her residency, individuals and groups will be able to meet and talk to her about the work, see the other works on exhibition, and think about what and how they could add to her piece themselves. No booking necessary, please drop in any time during opening hours. Feel free to bring an item to leave in the work. Please note that items are non-returnable.
Visitors are free to come back to see how they are incorporated into the sculpture.
