Sasha Huber (b. 1975, Zurich) is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Helsinki. She uses various media including video, photography, drawing, intervention and stapling. Being of European and Haitian heritage, she allies herself with the Caribbean Diaspora. The starting point for her work is an examination of her roots and of how this affects the process of constructing her personal and artistic identity. The journey began as a reaction against the historical injustice of colonialism. But, as her work progressed, this was gradually transformed into a quest for understanding and a more interactive dialogue.
Huber holds an MA from the University of Art and Design Helsinki. She has exhibited at spaces including: CCA - Centre of Contemporary Art Tibilisi, Georgia (2013); Hasselblad Foundation, Project Space, Gothenburg (2012); Retretti Art Centre, Finland (2012); Botkyrka Konsthall, Stockholm (2011); Kunsthalle Helsinki, Studio (2010); Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki (2010); and Riga Art Space, Latvia (2009). She edited Rentyhorn (2010), and was co-editor of (T)races of Louis Agassiz: Photography, Body and Science, Yesterday and Today (2010) on the occasion of the 29th Bienal de São Paulo.
