Huma Bhabha

Huma Bhabha was born in 1962, in Karachi, Pakistan. They live in Poughkeepsie, New York. Their sculptures are made from tactile materials such as Styrofoam, air-dried clay, wire, cork and scraps of construction material. They are informed by a vast array of cultural references, from the cinematography of the 1979 sci-fi classic Stalker to the architecture of Cambodia’s ancient temples at Angkor Wat. Their works address what Bhabha describes as the ‘eternal concerns’ found in war, colonialism, displacement and memories of home.
