Spotlight on artists and works

Rahima GAMBO, Tatsuniya, 2017 (2020 print)


Lessons for living

In her series Tatsuniya, GAMBO portrays school girls who attend a school previously attacked by Boko Haram, an Islamic militant group active in the northeastern and northern Nigeria. The girls now have the opportunities to resume their study and playful spirit at school.

A comfortable place for learning

A wooden frame dotted with plants and fish tanks. The fish droppings nourish the plants, and the water purified by the plants provides the fish with a comfortable environment—and all together this installation provides a forum to imagine the circular environments of the future.
