For her new works for this exhibition, Banerjee confronted the fundamental question of who we are and the problem of identity in this digital world. She answers this by viewing the natural world and human world as opposite mirrors. ‘Like clouds consist of molecular of water, our character needs layers of accumulation until it can be visible in the society.’ Who we are is decided by what we choose and how we show ourselves. Especially in this digital society where we seem to be able to shape our own identity freely, how do we choose who (what) to be? Subjective to her identity as a member of diaspora, Banerjee reminds that in this world we are all already members of a multi-cultural, hybrid existence.
