Birth year


digital, photography, landscape, video-art


Born in 1969, Isabelle Hayeur lives and works in Montreal. As an image-making artist, she is known for her large digital photomontages, her videos and her site-specific installations. An ecological, social and urban planning critique provides the framework for her artistic practice. Having lived in a suburb for some twenty years, she has been confronted with the sad spectacle of urban sprawl and all that it consigns to oblivion. Her approach is tied to this experience and draws from discourses about environmental issues and land use planning. She is particularly interested in the feelings of alienation, uprooting and dislocation. Her artworks have been shown in the context of numerous exhibitions and festivals, among others at the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d’art contemporain of Montreal, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts (MassMoca), the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin, the Tampa Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Pierogi Gallery, Bruce Silverstein Gallery, Noorderlicht Photogallery in Groningen and at Les rencontres de la photographie à Arles.
