Artists at Work: Anawana Haloba and Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński
For this Artists at Work, ISCP artists-in-residence Anawana Haloba and Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński will give presentations on their respective artistic practices and engage each other and the audience in conversation.
In her artistic research, Anawana Haloba uses a process she calls (Re)pair to put the needs and interests of epistemologically disenfranchised histories, technologies, and societies at the forefront of knowledge production. She works with moving image, installation and sound; seeing, listening and sharing are important tools of engagement in her art and teaching practice. In 2014 she founded LoCA in Livingstone in Zambia, a non-profit library, research center, and collective/collaborative platform for reflections and experimental think-tank to explore colonial and sociopolitical histories and their legacies, and how they relate to contemporary art. Haloba has exhibited work at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Biennale di Venezia, Venice; PalaisPopulaire, Berlin; and São Paulo Biennial, Brazil, among others.
As an artist, writer, and scholar, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński examines what she calls “the present of an everlasting colonial past.” She conducts research in public archives and collections for the “the gaps and blanks” in their contents. Her approach is rooted in Black feminist theory and her works, which intertwine documentary and fiction, are presented in a wide range of mediums. Kazeem-Kamiński’s first artistic monograph, a past without closure, will be published by Sternberg Press in 2023. She has exhibited work at the 2023 Liverpool Biennial, United Kingdom; Camera Austria, Austria; and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, among others.
