Sasha Huber was born in 1975 in Uster/ZH, Switzerland, and currently lives and works in Helsinki. Being of European and Haitian heritage, she allies herself with the Caribbean Diaspora. Huber describes the starting point for her work as an examination of her roots and of how this affects the process of constructing her personal and artistic identity. The journey began with Huber being disturbed by the historical injustice of colonialism. As her work progressed, however, this attitude was gradually transformed into a quest for understanding and a more interactive dialogue between modes of intervention. Huber has been showing her work collaboratively and in solo exhibitions in Finland and abroad since 2003. She edited Rentyhorn in 2010, and was co-editor of (T)races of Louis Agassiz: Photography, Body and Science, Yesterday and Today on the occasion of the 29th São Paulo Biennial in 2010.
