Domesticality- curated by Moran Been-Noon. 08 - 23 February 2019

Opening: Thursday, 07 February, 6-9pm
Opening hours: Tues-Fri 1-5, Sat 12-4pm

Domesticality is a group exhibition that challenges the traditional notion of the domestic as it is perceived in light of our contemporary everyday reality. The term, Domesticality, represents a confrontation between “domestic” and “reality”. The exhibition aims to be relevant to  those living with intellectual disabilities, with the view of home-living raising questions of independence, support, and community.
The work is rooted in the meaning of the term as a comforting routine in a permanent residence, with each piece proposing a different critical view of the term that reflects the current practice of “home-living”. Domesticality offers an inclusive viewpoint, with work contributed by a group of artists including artists who are intellectually disabled, giving agency within the field to voices and narratives not often present in the independent art world. The idea of domestic is thus represented differently, attached to objects, politics, and economies rather than permanent routines or places.

Moran Been-noon is a Dublin-based independent visual artist, curator and writer. In her curatorial work she explores the potential of contemporary political art by engaging with questions of spaces and places that art can, or should, occupy in society. She curates with a collaborative approach, considering the exhibition’s overall impact on an individual navigating through a gallery, and lead the work with a cohesive concept.
Been-noon curated projects in gallery spaces and off-site for independent galleries throughout the island of Ireland. She produced and led creatively Platform Art Belfast’s in Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm in 2016, and a pop-up gallery in Electric Picnic Festival 2009.
