Nour Sokhon is a Lebanese interdisciplinary artist based between Beirut, Lebanon and Berlin, Germany. Her creative practice is centred around exploring different methods of working with artistic research including interview material, field recordings and recorded material from an organized site-specific intervention. The research is then translated into sound/music compositions, performances, interactive installations and moving image work.
In 2014, Nour achieved an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from the American University in Dubai, and in 2017 she culminated a large scale project; a documentary entitled ‘People on Sound’, as part of her Master’s degree in Sound for the Moving Image at the Glasgow School of Art in the UK. In 2019, Nour received the Emerging Artist Prize at the Sursock Museum in Lebanon, for a moving image piece entitled ‘Revisiting: Hold Your Breath’. She recently completed the Sound Art 2020 scholarship that she was awarded by Lower Saxony and the University of Fine Arts in Braunschweig, Germany. She is a member of two sound collectives, Tse Tse Fly Middle East and Heya Collective.
