About the work
Huma Bhabha
Pakistani, b. 1962
Follow

Huma Bhabha sculpts poetic assemblages of tactile, unconventional materials, such as Styrofoam, air-dried clay, wire, cork, and construction scraps. Sometimes described as “post-apocalyptic,” Bhabha's pieces thread figuration and abstraction, fusing elements of architecture to form a landscape-like sense of place. Making diverse cultural references, from the cinematography of the Andrei Tarkhovsky's sci-fi classic Stalker (1979) to the architecture of Cambodia’s ancient temples at Angkor Wat, Bhabha’s work transcends specificity to explore the universal, “eternal concerns” of all cultures: war, colonialism, displacement, and longing. Bhabha often produces pastel drawings and photographs in conjunction with her installations, reworking them in ink to blend uncanny, expressive figuration with Modernist abstraction.
