Hiba Ismail
Artist in Residence

Hiba Ismail (b. 1992), draws on the vernacular and addresses the ways in which events are mapped on architecture and material culture. Her interests lie in unearthing the external influences acted upon localities
through sound, often recording various soundscapes in Sudan, from the grinding of coffee beans with a pestle and mortar to the rhythms found among street protesters. Her work seeks to harmonise these recordings and locate the pulse that keeps communities
moving forward.

Recent exhibitions include: Total Anastrophes, Fiorucci Art Trust, Stromboli, Italy (2018); A History of Drawing, Camberwell Space (2018); June, Set Project Space, London (2017); Scamming, Palazzo Lancia, Turin – curated by Flavio Palasciano and Franziska Sophie Wildförster (2017); she was the winner of a six month studio award courtesy of Blackhorse Workshop (2016).
