Huma Mulji works with sculptural installation, photography, collage and drawing. Drawing on the city and its collective memory, , within a backdrop of economic globalisation, state power and fragmented histories, she activates the dysfunctional, the sorrowful, the futile and the funny. The sculptures stand as inconvenient witnesses to time and place, critically exploring material & form in her deliberately awkward works. Mulji has an abiding interest in examining the specificity of place, amplifying a perpetual discomfort and scepticism from the perspective of both observer and participant.
Mulji’s participation in recent exhibitions includes: Your Tongue in My Mouth (solo), Mirror, Plymouth; Can you Hear my Voice? Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne, Australia (2021); Skyfall (solo) Karachi, Pakistan (2020); The Centre of Gravity, Bristol, UK (2020); In the Open and in Stealth MACBA, Barcelona, Spain (2018); Witness, Karachi Biennale (2017); welcome to what we took from is the state, Queens Museum, New York, USA (2017); A Country of Last Things, Koel Gallery, Karachi, (2016); The Great Game, Irani Pavilion, Venice Biennale (2015); and Burning Down the House, 10th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2014)
She is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
