“I’d rather have something break if it means getting to the breakthrough,” says Hubby, whose work can often take radically different forms from project to project. Past works have included a photographic series about construction near her house, tailored tours of Los Angeles, and a pop-up boutique. Much of her work is jocular or celebratory, but she is also interested in the politics of the female body, intimacy, and sexual desire. In two series, both titled “sex without the people,” Hubby unpacked the semiotics of desire by removing the subjects and objects of lust. In photographic works, Hubby displayed only the clothes discarded by lovers, while in collages she excised all the figures from antique erotic illustrations, allowing viewers to home in on the stylized gestures used to convey sexual passion.
