Sasha Huber: YOU NAME IT
Who and what do we memorialise, and how?
Catalogue to accompany the critically acclaimed Sasha Huber: YOU NAME IT exhibition.
This comprehensive publication focuses on the artwork and activism of Sasha Huber. A Helsinki-based visual artist and researcher of Swiss and Haitian heritage, Huber’s creative practice encompasses performance, photography, film, mixed media, reparative interventions, and collaborations to investigate colonial residues left in the environment. Her projects conceive of natural spaces—mountains, lakes, glaciers, forests, and craters—as contested territories, highlighting the ways in which history is imprinted onto the landscape through acts of remembrance, including memorialisation through naming and the erection of monuments.
For over a decade, Huber has produced work in relation to the Demounting Louis Agassiz campaign, which seeks to redress the racist legacy of the Swiss-born naturalist and glaciologist. With her artworks, Huber challenges the terms by which we remember, asking not only who and what we memorialise, but also, and more importantly, how we do so.
