QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

Today QSS is launching a collaboration with Moran Been-noon (@batinzedesert) showcasing collections of the members’ work on our various channels. Moran approached us with the idea of curating these little collections earlier this month and we are delighted to be able to work together to showcase the great work done at QSS even though our gallery is currently closed.

The first collection is entitled ‘Beautiful Loneliness’. Moran commented ‘While not intending to discuss isolation, it seems the notion planted itself in my mind when I started the first collection. Each of the pieces I selected has a distinct aesthetic, and expresses the loneliness of its subject, its narrator, or its audience.”
