Reena Saini Kallat
Deep Rivers Run Quiet
Reena Saini Kallat (b. 1973 in Delhi) is one of today’s premier Indian artists. She deals in her multimedia works with national and geographical boundaries and geopolitical border conflicts, examining their impact on the people affected and on their environments. Her motifs are ambiguous, usually juxtaposing an element of separation with one of connection. The artist explores for example the courses of rivers as both boundaries and lifelines. In the Thun show, such works enter into a dialogue with the River Aare right outside the museum.
The presentation at the Kunstmuseum Thun is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland.
