Rahima Gambo (b.1986) is a multimedia artist who came to artistic practice by working independently on long form trans media documentary projects. Currently, she explores the narrative and experimental capabilities of "walking" as it intersects with documentary storytelling, female bodies, psycho-spiritual-geography, socio politics, urban environment and autobiography. Her work engages with the tools of documentary-making and an expanded visual language that includes drawing, film, sculpture, installation and sound. 

She has an academic background in gender theory, social policy and development studies. She lives and works in Abuja, Nigeria.
