Huma Mulji works with sculptural installation, photography, collage and drawing. The more recent works are often compelled by the tragic, veiled by absurdity or irony. Observing the everyday, an ambiguous combination of the dysfunctional, the heroic, sorrowful and the resilient, the works are deliberately awkward and spatially evocative, mining out failure, the futile, the vulnerable, the funny. Amongst the horror and chaos, the works stand as unwieldy, inconvenient witnesses, imbuing a formal and material anti-heroism.
Mulji’s participation in recent exhibitions includes In the Open and in Stealth, MACBA, Barcelona (2018), We look at Animals Because, Critical Distance Center for Curators, Toronto, Canada (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 Pavillion, Venice Biennale, (2015) Burning Down the House, 10th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea, (2014).
