Soliana Habte is an Ethiopian-American sculptor who lives and works in Los Angeles. They use resin, wood, found objects, and their body to create two and three-dimensional sculptures that investigate how time, tension, gravity, and color interact with various materials in different planes. Their work is concerned with the interconnectedness of overexposure and invisibility and the tension this creates in marginalized bodies. They use vivid patterns, colors, popular music, found objects, and psychedelic landscapes to connect to different people. Their work attempts to disrupt conventional constructions of racialized and gendered bodies and to contest the obligation of legibility systemically demanded from black figures.
