Norah Dineen (IE)
- September - November 2019 Norah Dineen is an Irish-born interdisciplinary artist. She has a deep interest in human connections and authentic experiences. Through her paintings, she tries to eradicate the prejudices inflicted on the body by the images in film and media. The subjects of her paintings are her body and the bodies of people she knows that are stencilled onto her work surface. These depictions exist in the space between the mystery of being and the realities of the human condition, and for her, represent a life-renewing process of evolution and growth. Dineen is also a filmmaker and actress with formal training from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, London; Actor Space Berlin, Berlin. L’Institut des Etudes Politiques, Paris; and Trinity College Dublin, Dublin. She holds academic degrees in visual and performing arts, as well as politics and sociology.
