Aishath Huda


2016 BFA China Academy of Art, Hangzhou

Aishath Huda (Huda) investigates the relationship between bodies and the environment in both the local and the ecological sense. She carefully studies the responses that happen in the interaction and transformation of the material, body, memory, event, and time. Huda regards Water as a knowledgeable access point to learn from, and works with Water as a method. Most recent work addresses the many ways Water is abstracted through ethics and aesthetics; how this affects climate literacy, and how climate literacy is connected to human and more-than-human relations.
