Noni Kaur’s practice explores how culture and materials are adapted or transformed in different environments according to the posthuman experience. This site-specific installation traces the agency of cellular, plasmic, and parasitic forces in both human and non-human worlds. Through spatial interventions, she explores cycles of life and death, ephemerality, and nature. Comprised of vinyl and mylar, painted maps based on interior biosystems expand outward, swallowing up patrons in a microbial world that often goes unnoticed in daily human life.
Noni Kaur is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist and educator. Kaur’s works are an embodiment of her response to intersectional identity across cultures and communities. Her immersive, reactive, multi-sensory installations bridge gaps between gender, culture, the body and the non-human world. Kaur’s work has been featured in international venues including the Havana Biennale, Cuba; the Asian Art Biennale, Dhaka, Bangladesh; the Fukuoka Triennale, Asian Art Museum, Japan; White Columns, New York; the Henie Onstad Kunstenter , Oslo, Norway amongst others. Kaur lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.
The work is supported through an ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL GRANT
(exhibition assistance grant).
