Salima Hakim (Indonesia-Tangerang)
Salima Hakim (born in Jakarta, 1978) is an alumnus of the Master of Art History postgraduate program at the University of Indonesia (UI). Currently, she works as a practitioner and lecturer of art history study in Universitas Multimedia Nusantara, Tangerang. She believed that art is a form of escapism that will enable the telling of complicated stories to be explained literally. She works a lot with embroidery and hand sewing media with exploratory narratives about historical deconstruction in a gender perspective.
In Biennale Jogja Equator #6 2021, Salima continues the development of her previously initiated project, ‘HERStory’ from in 2019.
Several exhibitions that present Salima’s work, included Masa Subur: Efek Samping at Karja Art Space, Ubud, Bali (2018), Art For Orangutan 3 at the Jogja National Museum(2019), and Mengalihkan Politik (re)Presentasi at Gajah Gallery, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2019).
