Using humor as a starting point, Neil Beloufa questions important issues facing society. His recent installation work has garnered international recognition. Beloufa creates unique viewing spaces using a combination of sculptures and moving images. Treating the projections like objects, he transfers images onto different surfaces, in doing so destabilizing one’s perspective. The artist establishes an intimate connection between the technology and the viewer by revealing cables and presenting the images through closed-circuit television.
Beloufa’s work has been shown in contemporary art venues as well as in film festivals. He has had solo exhibitions at the Fondation Ricard, Paris (2014); the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2013); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012); the New Museum, New York (2011); MOMA New York (2016).
