Huma Bhabha creates sculptural assemblages out of a diverse range of materials such as Styrofoam, air-dried clay, wire, cork and scraps of construction material. By combining an eclectic range of cultural and historical references, such as the barren landscapes of Andrei Tarkovsky films and ancient Cambodian Temples, Bhabha creates work that is suggestive of a forsaken post-apocalyptic landscape. Similar to the power of science-fiction, Bhabha amalgamates these diverse sources in order to discuss an alternative time and place, which is impossible to place within our historical or cultural memory. There is a moving poetry to Bhabha’s work, achieved through her frequent decision to expose the armature of her sculpture. This choice renders the work seemingly unfinished creating an unnerving vulnerability and arresting sobriety to much of her work. This effect of alienation removes a singular identity and thereby creates a new suggestion of humanity that addresses our perpetual universal struggle with: war, history, human violence, colonialism and hegemonic struggle.
