Taloi Havini


Taloi Havini (Nakas Tribe, Hakö, born Arawa, Autonomous Region of Bougainville; based Australia) employs a research practice informed by her matrilineal ties to land and communities in Bougainville. She delves into the legacy of resource extraction and the broader political issues of nation building in the Pacific region through immersive media and sculpture. She is also actively involved in community projects such as Women’s Wealth, 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art. Her artwork is held in public and private collections including the Sharjah Art Foundation, Art Gallery of New South Wales, QAGOMA, National Gallery of Victoria, KADIST, TBA21–Academy.
