Moran Been-noon is a Dublin-based visual artist, independent curator, and art writer. As a curator she is primarily interested in multiplatform group exhibitions, with a commitment to expanded practice. Her practice is international, aimed at developing both Irish audience’s exposure to visual art produced elsewhere, and promote Irish artists’ work in international settings. As an artist she predominantly makes moving image installations, with a subject matter focus on political identity and post-migration living. Her recent work involves exploring physical manipulations of voice, skin, and landscapes in order to examine questions of foreignness and belonging. As part of her practice she works with a dance artist in Landing Collective, a collaboration focused on the experience of acculturation with a feminist point of view.
Been-noon’s projects were included in gallery exhibitions and festivals, both on- and off-site throughout the island of Ireland and internationally. She produced pieces for festivals in Nigeria, Israel, and Ireland and and creatively led Platform Art Belfast’s in Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm in 2016. Her writing has been published in Circa Magazine and Visual Artists Ireland News Sheet, and her more recent writing explores work of women artists which involves landscapes and identity. She is an active participant in the Irish arts community, and acted as board member and treasurer at Platform Arts in Belfast for two years.
