Engaged in contemplation about mass production, recycling, function, materiality, gravity, and time, Inna Babaeva creates and inhabits a world where mundane objects can be unique, space can be altered, time can stop, and gravity can be an illusion.
She uses objects and materials that are widely available for purchase and consumption and combines them with the forms that she makes herself. The resulting outcomes are absurd sculptures that are deprived of function but enhanced and augmented visually.
Inna Babaeva is a visual artist born in Ukraine. She received her MFA from Rutgers University. She is currently a resident at the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
