Neil Beloufa

Visual Artist
(Updated on 01/16/2013)

Neil Beloufa demonstrates a persisting interest in dichotomies; reality and fiction, cause and effect, presence and absence, all of which he communicates through various medium ranging from sculpture, video, installation and photography. Through his construction of dichotomies Beloufa is able to deconstruct our perceived ideas of truth and fantasy, thus posing fantasy as truth. His works relies on our relations to exoticism, authority, cultural hierarchies in a wikipedian era he considers hypereel. 

Neil Beloufa studied at Les beaux Arts de Paris, les Arts décoratifs de Paris, CalArts, Valencia, Cooper Union, New York; And Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts contemporain. His work is shown both in contemporary art venues, as well as in film festivals. 

Recent solo presentations include, New Museum, New York; Palais de tokyo, Paris; Kunsthaus Glarus; Kunstraum Innsbruck; WhiteBox, New York among other venues. Recent group shows include, The Paris Triennale, Manifesta 8, Center Pompidou, Paris; David Roberts Arts Foundation, London; Kunsthal Antwerp; Arnolfini Center of Contemporary Art (...) His films won awards in various film festivals including the Grand Prizes at the 54th and 57th Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage in Germany, Best narrative and best international film at Ann Arbor film Festival, Grand Prize at Indie Lisboa among others... His films have been shown in various film festivals including the TIFF, Toronto International Film Festival in 2011, The IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012, 2009, The London Film Festival in 2009, 2010, 2011; and the NewYork Film Festival in 2010.
