Harvey's sculptures make her influences evident and she fuses them with her own creations to reinvent, reinterpret, and retell new narratives.
Auriea Harvey lives in Rome and is a Professor of Games at Kunsthochschule Kassel. Her works are often complemented by AR sculptures, which bridge the gap between the digital and physical, the possible and impossible. Harvey sifts through artefacts of Western culture in order to find herself and traces of her African American diasporic lineage. These objects are hybrid products, made in Western Europe but borrowing from its colonies.She was part of the curated Christie’s auction PROOF OF SOVEREIGNTY in 2021.
