Rahima Gambo (b. 1986, London, UK) is a Nigerian visual artist who came to artistic practice from photojournalism and by working independently on long form documentary projects. She explores the experimental and conceptual territory between still and moving images as it intersects with documentary, psychogeography, socio-politics, ecology, and autobiography. Her practice ranges from drawing, video, sculpture, installation and sound, using them as extended poetic and speculative tools that enquire around documentary processes that lie outside preexisting traditions. 

Selected exhibitions include Bird Sound Orientations 2, Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, Bird Sound Orientations 1, Stevenson Gallery Johannesburg, “Have you seen a Horizon Lately?” MACAAL, Morocco.
