Biography

 

Anawana Haloba b. 1978, Livingstone, Zambia. Lives and works in Oslo and Livingstone. She completed her BA at the National Academy of Arts in Oslo 2006 and is a graduate of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Anawana Haloba’s artistic practice is an ongoing investigation process into positions of different soci- eties within varied political, social, economic and cultural contexts, ideological and post-independence frameworks.

Her artistic practice is symbiotically linked to and through her preparatory exercise in drafting poetry in the forms of sketches from which the artist abstracts to performative based artworks within moving image, installation, and sound, while creating situations where the material culture of any given place can be probed and reconsidered within the scheme of rapidly shifting contemporary subjectivities. Haloba’s work has been featured in both solo and group exhibi- tions, including, National Museum of African Arts Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC, USA; the Rauma Biennale, Finland; ZKM Museum of Contemporary Art, Karlsruhe, Germany; Museum Berardo Collection, Lisbon, Portugal;la Biennale di Venezia, 2009; Sydney Biennale, Australia; Manifesta 7, Bolzano, Italy, the Sharjah Biennial 08 and 11, UAE. Haloba is also participating in the 32nd edition of the Bienal de São Paulo with the project “Close Up” curated by Jochen Volz, and co-curated by Gabi Ngcobo, Júlia Rebouças, Lars Bang Larsen, and Sofia Olascoaga. The 11th Shanghai Biennial Project “The Dragon King in Sleep Pride Rock” curated by Raqs Media, co curator Smooth Uguchukwu-Nzewi.
