Presentation: Halimatu Iddrisu

12 March 2024 05.00 PM - 07.00 PM
Art Hub Copenhagen Halmtorvet 27, 1700 København V

Join us on March 12 as we dive into the process and practice of Ghanaian artist Halimatu Iddrisu who is currently in Copenhagen as part of the Wintanworks residency program. Get a generous insight as Iddrisu will show what she has been working on in her studio at Halmtorvet the past few weeks.

Halimatu Iddrisu is an artist based in Kumasi, Ghana. Her artworks explore the dichotomy between the liberal dressing style of Muslim women in Ghana and the strict Islamic rules that govern women’s costume. Born in Accra in 1997, Iddrisu draws inspiration from her upbringing in a strict Islamic household while witnessing the contrasting freedom of women’s dress in the Ghanaian Muslim society (particularly within the Zongo communities).

Iddrisu’s thought-provoking artworks prompt viewers to reflect on the complexities of identity, cultural practices and societal expectations. In 2020, Iddrisu graduated with a bachelor of Fine arts from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and technology. She is currently pursuing a Masters of Fine Art at the same institution.

ABOUT WINTANWORKS
Wintanworks is an artist-in-residence and exchange programme – a collaboration between Art Hub Copenhagen (AHC) in Denmark and the blaxTARLINES KUMASI collective in Ghana. This residency programme provides two artists – one from each country – with the opportunity to ‘swap’ locations for one month, each of them thereby spending time in another art scene and another cultural environment.
