Huma Mulji works across media, largely with sculptural installation, photography and collage. Drawing on the city and its collective memory, within a backdrop of state power, migration, displacement 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.
