Minimal and playful, Noa Giniger’s work is founded on the idea that nothing is stable, secure, or steady. As a consequence, a substantial part of her work relates to longing and the bittersweet of letting go. She investigates modes of navigation in this world, physical and emotional, inspired by systems of mapping and measurement, language and naming, natural laws and social codes. She explores the ways in which time and intimacy are linked, and addresses the difficulty of capturing intimacy with words. She uses different modes of collaboration and the ecosystem of the arts, creating occasions for collaborative practices and access. The outcomes of her projects include site-specific installations in both private and public space, sound, video, websites, objects, works on paper and writing. Additionally, Noa represents half of the spoken-word-poetry duo Noon & Ain with musician Anat Spiegel.
