Anawana Haloba

Anawana Haloba’s artistic practice is an ongoing investigation of different societies’ positions within various political, social, economic, ideological, cultural, and post-independence frameworks. Haloba drafts poetry in the form of sketches for her work, from which she abstracts to performative-based artworks in moving image, installation, and sound. She constructs scenarios in which the material culture of any given location can be probed and reconsidered within the context of rapidly shifting contemporary subjectivities.

Anawana Haloba has exhibited work at Center Georges Pompidou, France; Biennale di Venezia, Italy; and Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazil, among others.
