Ashmina Ranjit

Interdisciplinary Artivist

Ashmina Ranjit is an interdisciplinary “artivist” who works internationally.

Nepal’s leading conceptual artist, Ashmina pushes the definitions of the post modern in contemporary Nepali Art – her-in-your-face installations and performances constantly interrogates, challenges and confront cultural stereotypes.

Her art is an expression of her commitment as a social activist, as an ‘Artivist’ she positions herself self-consciously as a Third World Artist, influenced to a certain degree by the cultural ‘otherness’ that is embedded in her works.

Her subjects are located within such cultural specificity of South Asia, so subversion of cultural stereotypes and politics of gender are critical expressions of her process-driven work.
