Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Lives and works in Rotterdam. Teaches at the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam and HEAD, Geneva.
Noam Toran’s work involves the creation of intricate narratives developed as a means to reflect upon the interrelations of history, memory, and storytelling as embodied in cinematic, literary, and performative forms. Research based, the works examine how fictions influence the collective consciousness, and are realised through an original way of reconfiguring narrative codes, conventions and structures, and weaving them with historical materials.
The work is exhibited, screened and published internationally, notably at the CNAC Pompidou (Paris), Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), Venice Architecture Biennale, London Architecture Biennale, Victoria & Albert Museum (London), Israel Museum (Jerusalem), Witte de With (Rotterdam), MuHKA (Antwerp), Museum of Modern Art (NYC), Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Musée d’Art Contemporain (St Etienne), Baltic Contemporary (Newcastle), London Design Festival, Arnolfini Gallery (Bristol), Center for Contemporary Art (Tel Aviv), Musée D’Art Moderne (Luxembourg), Kulturhuset (Stockholm) and Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin).
Noam Toran is represented by Raw Art Gallery in Tel Aviv.
