Landing Collective - Studio Incubation Award
March - April 2018
DRAÍOCHT INCUBATE is a new series of short studio residencies for emerging, early career artists, curators and collectives who wish to have time and space to research, test new ideas, and develop new work. We are delighted to announce four new Incubation artists whose diverse practices chime with Draíocht’s interest in interdisciplinary practice; visual culture and new technologies; socially engaged and collaborative practices; visual arts practice for children and young people.
05 March – 20 April 2018
Aliina Lindroos and Moran Been-noon are collaborators on an ongoing project entitled Landing, which focuses on ideas of ‘belonging’ and ‘Foreign’. Lindroos is originally from Finland and now lives between Dublin and Berlin and her practice is rooted in dance and performance. Been-noon is an Israeli Dublin-based artist and curator. Both artists are migrants out of choice, both are away from their native land, and they are interested in exploring the meaning of a home, and the relationship between this term and one’s physicality and identity. They are particularly interested in exploring the psychological processes of acculturation experienced by migrants. Drawing on choreography, video, installation and multimedia performance, the artists will work in the community of Dublin 15 collecting personal and public experiences of acculturation, which are then interpreted in the form of visuals and movement.
Aliina Lindroos and Moran Been-noon have been collaborating since 2015. Aliina Lindroos is a Finnish dancer and choreographer. She has worked for, collaborated and researched with international choreographers and companies such as Raimund Hoghe (Pina Bausch), Luca Silvestrini Protein Dance Company, Nic Green and John Scott (Irish Modern Dance Theatre), Emma Martin (United Fall) and Jeremy Wade among others. Her own work often explores themes surrounding complex relationships we have with environment, whether in biological or sociological, personal or political setting. Most recently she has performed her work in Berlin and London.
Moran Been-noon is an Israeli new media arts practitioner, curator and writer. She earned her MFA degree in Computer Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and PhD at NCAD in Dublin. Her moving image work has been included in art festivals in Dublin, Dunedin (NZ) and Lagos (Nigeria), as well as group exhibitions in Galleries across Ireland. Her work critiques political aspects of everyday life through examining physical actions such as walking, talking and touching.
