Sasha Huber (b. in 1975 in Zurich) is a visual artist who lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. Questioning her roots, her research focuses on the process of building their personal and artistic identity through media such as video, photography, compressed-air stapling, performance-based interventions and book publishing. Committed artist, she works since several years on the project “Demounting Louis Agassiz” which consist in renaming Mount Agassizhorn whose origin comes from Louis Agassiz (1807-1873), Swiss naturalist who developed racist theories, to rename it in Rentyhorn in tribute to the slave, Renty and of those who met similar fates. She participated in numerous international exhibitions, including the 56th La Biennale di Venezia in 2015.
