Halima Haruna is a Nigerian artist and researcher living in the U.S.
Her research interests are at the intersection of the decolonisation of knowledge and epistemology through spiritual practice. Her creative practice revolves around cultural theory based on Nigerian socio-politics, mediated through performance and video. She deals primarily with collaborative, educational and community-based projects that can disrupt mainstream narratives. She is interested in magic, myth and fantasy as points of departure for decolonial practice.
Her most recent research trajectory ‘WE NO ALGORITHM’ is an exploration of narrative/mathematical models in the Ifa divination structure. The project will imagine and produce experimental web page building systems based on the Ifa models.
She recently completed a Digital Earth 2019 fellowship, and received a MA in Research Architecture from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2018.
