Summary "Often described as post-apocalyptic, the work of sculptor Huma Bhabha (born 1962, Karachi, Pakistan) responds to violence and turmoil through depictions of anthropomorphic figures--or "characters," as Bhabha calls them--that frequently appear to be dismembered, melted, or dissected. This book, accompanying a site-specific installation at The Met, features an interview with the artist and two essays that provides insights into her diverse influences and elaborates on how art history, politics, economics and popular cinema have informed her work. This publication is the sixth edition in a series that documents The Met’s annual rooftop commissions"--Publisher’s description
