Huma Bhabha: They Live by Eva Respini
Huma Bhabha is known for sculptures depicting the human figure fashioned from materials ranging from clay, brick and wood to Styrofoam, bronze, found objects and construction materials. Such works reveal her myriad influences, including horror films, science fiction, ancient artifacts, religious reliquaries and Neo-Expressionism.
Illustrated essays investigate the artist’s prolific and multidisciplinary output, her historical and cultural reference points and her frequent themes, such as war, colonialism, displacement and the memory of home – in the artist’s words, these are ‘eternal concerns’ found across all cultures. A conversation between Bhabha and American artist Sterling Ruby offers an intimate point of entry into Bhabha’s perspectives and artistic practice.
