Sasha Huber (CH/FI) is a Helsinki based multidisciplinary visual artist of Swiss-Haitian heritage. She works and presents her work internationally and is primarily concerned with the politics of memory and belonging, particularly in relation to colonial residue left in the environment. Sensitive to the subtle threads connecting history and the present, she uses and responds to archival material within a layered creative practice that encompasses performance-based interventions, video, photography, and collaborations. Huber is also claiming the compressed-air staple gun, aware of its symbolic significance as a weapon while offering the potential to renegotiate unequal power dynamics. Huber works regularly in a creative partnership with her partner artist Petri Saarikko. She holds an MA from the University of Art and Design Helsinki and is presently undertaking practice-based PhD studies.
