Huma Mulji

Huma Mulji is a Visual Artist working with sculpture, photography, drawing, and painting, creating material juxtapositions which are attentive to the absurd, and question notions of certainty, and truth. Her research broadly address notions of failure and neglect, endurance and transformation. The deliberately awkward artworks are spatially evocative, and imbue an anti-heroism, playing out ironically, or sometimes comically, in her works.
