Taloi Havini (Nakas Tribe, Hakö people) was born in Arawa, Autonomous Region of Bougainville and is currently based in Brisbane, Australia. She employs a research practice informed by her matrilineal ties to her land and communities in Bougainville.  This manifests in works created using a range of media including photography, audio – video, sculpture, immersive installation, and print.

She curates and collaborates across multi-art platforms using archives, working with communities, and developing commissions locally and internationally. Knowledge – production, transmission, inheritance, mapping, and representation are central themes in Havini’s work where she examines these in relation to land, architecture, and place.
