Taloi Havini
Résidente Pavillon Neuflize OBC 2017

Past: June 14 → September 10, 2017

Taloi Havini’s artistic and curatorial practice centers on the deconstruction of the politics of location, and the transmission of Indigenous Knowledge Systems. Her work responds to the history and culture of Bougainville, where she was born, and acknowledges her people’s deep connection to land, despite years of conflict and civil war. In her research, Taloi Havini engages with living cultural practitioners and Oceanian material collections and archives. She often responds to these experiences and sites of investigation with experimental ceramic installations, print, photographic and video works in solo and collaborative works. She is actively involved in cultural heritage projects, exhibitions, research and community development in Melanesia and Australia.
