Noni Kaur’s practice explores her cultural history and how particular materials are adapted or transformed through use in different spaces/ environments. This winter, she will present an immersive, multi-sensory, dyed-coconut installation that bridges the gaps between gender, culture, the body, and the non-human world.
As a Singaporean woman of Punjabi descent, the artist’s identity is by its own nature, intersectional. The works she creates, explore her cultural history and how particular materials are adapted or transformed through use in different spaces/environments. A cultural practice in India and Singapore is rangoli: the act of using coloured materials to decorate floors in domestic and public spaces. Traditionally made from powder pigments, flowers, rice, or sand, rangoli designs are a revelation of beauty and the acquisition of auspiciousness around significant events and festivals.
