Anawana Haloba is an artist from Zambia living and working between Oslo and Livingstone. Her works use poetry in the form of sketches, abstracted into performance-based works that incorporate moving images, objects and sound that are an ongoing investigation into the positions of different communities within varied political, social, economic and cultural contexts, ideological and post-independence frameworks. She completed her BA at the National Academy of Arts in Oslo in 2006 and is a graduate of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Haloba work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions, including at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC, the Venice Biennale, and Manifesta 7 in Italy.
