Huma Bhabha’s work draws from a wide range of sources, from art historical references including Classicism and Cubism, to popular culture with influences such as sci-fi, comic books and horror films.
Her sculptural assemblages comprise found materials such as Styrofoam, clay, wire, cork, animal bones and wood; hand-carved figures, heads and limbs combine architectural elements and armatures. Bhabha’s multifaceted work explores colonialism, war, displacement and the memory of home. For her first major survey exhibition in Europe,
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is thrilled to present a selection of sculptures, photo-drawings and works on paper.
