"Malani's work is not about trauma and its effects per se. Rather it seeks a visual language capable of encompassing eruptions of the irrational and the repressed, and the ways they made the world and processes of history. Unlike the surrealists, with whom she shares a healthy skepticism about the effects of binary thinking and Western rationality, she is not in search of synthesis or resolution. Instead we are offered fragments, traces, erasures, scars, signs. Such signs, at once compelling and terrifying, point toward new visual languages. Critical, interrogative, and formed from multiple strata of interlinked references that span geographics and epochs, they lock together the utopian and dystopian in denying women their rightful place in the world."
Whitney Chadwick, excerpted from Record/Remember/Relate in "Splitting the Other.

Nalini Malani: Splitting the OtherNalini Malani: Splitting the Other

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Bernhard Fibicher. Text by Doris von Drathen, Andreas Huyssen, Whitney Chadwick.

One of the most important contemporary artists working in India today, Nalini Malani (born 1946) employs painting, video installation, shadow play and theater-oriented works to envisage the rapidly changing political and economic situation of South Asia and the place of women within society. Mobilizing a cross-cultural and cross-epochal cast of female archetypes--from Hindu figures such Radha and Sita to such Western icons as Medea, Cassandra and Lewis Carroll's Alice--and addressing topics including war, fanaticism, economic development and environmental destruction, she melds the global with the local, the universal with the specific, narrativity with metanarrativity. Splitting the Other offers extensive documentation of Malani's memorable work in multiple media, in DVD as well as stills, as well as texts by feminist art historian Whitney Chadwick (Women, Art and Society), German art historian Doris von Drathen (Vortex of Silence) and scholar Andreas Huyssen (Other Cities, Other Worlds).

Nalini Malani: Listening to the ShadesNalini Malani: Listening to the Shades

Published by Charta.
Text by Robert Storr, Nalini Malani.

This gilt-edged artist's book by the celebrated Indian artist Nalini Malani was inspired by the writings of the German critic and novelist Christa Wolf on the ancient Greek myth of Cassandra. Through more than 40 exquisitely reproduced images, Malani retells this story from the perspective of the unheard woman whose insights are constantly ignored or relegated to heresy.
Here, Cassandra symbolizes the unfinished business of the feminist revolution--acknowledging the ways that female logic and foresight have remained disparaged and overlooked despite all of the advances we have made as a society.
Nalini Malani was born in Karachi in 1946--before the partition of her country into the nations of India and Pakistan. A committed social activist, Malani often bases her work on the stories of those who have been marginalized by history.

Nalini MalaniNalini Malani

Published by Charta / Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Foreword by Enrique Juncosa. Text by Thomas McEvilley, Chaitanya Sambrani, Johan Pijnappel and Nalini Malani.

As one of the best regarded artists working in India, Nalini Malani is famous both for her paintings and for video and shadow-play installations that reveal a deep commitment to the subcontinent. She was born in Karachi in 1946, before the partition of Pakistan from India, and was forced to flee her hometown, along with her family, as a refugee. After stops in Calcutta and Poona, Malani settled in Bombay (current-day Mumbai), where she has lived and worked since 1958. There she has developed a new position for female Indian artists which has made her an icon for the country's younger generation. Her provocative works have been shown extensively in solo exhibitions, including one at the New Museum in New York, and in group contexts such as Tate Modern and the 2005 and 2007 Venice Bienniales. This substantial monograph, designed in collaboration with the artist, offers Malani's latest paintings and installations, as well as an illustrated biography.
