LASANAA has undoubtedly played a crucial role in modeling what we now consider contemporary Nepali art. With a priority in the art making process, the organization has bridged the gap between society and art. Currently, LASANAA is participating in the Kathmandu Triennale – where contemporary artist Ashmina Ranjit will showcase a performance titled “Sacredness Within and Beyond.”
As a Kathmandu Triennale Performance Art Curator, Ashmina Ranjit has invited the four artists, as LASANAA resident artists, to develop a collective performance and lead a workshop entitled ‘Being in a Body’. The five artists from different geographical origins will have a conversation in Kathmandu, which will root the creation in individual and collaborative response to the city. The group’s performance will be based on their own experiences now, in the present, at this moment in Kathmandu. In addition, each artist is creating an individual performance for the Triennale.
