Born in Montreal in 1969, Isabelle Hayeur lives and works in Quebec, Canada. As an image-based artist, she is known for her photographs and her experimental videos. She has also realized several site-specific installations and public art commissions. Her work is situated within a critical approach to the environment, urban development and to social conditions. She is particularly interested in the feelings of alienation, uprooting and disenchantment. Hayeur’s works have been widely shown. She participated in many major public shows, such as the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (Berlin), the Tampa Museum of Art, the Canadian Cultural Centre (Paris), Casino Luxembourg Forum d’art contemporain, the Today Art Museum (Beijing) and at Les Rencontres internationales de la photographie à Arles. Her works are to be found in some thirty collections, including those of the National Gallery of Canada, the Fonds national d’art contemporain in Paris, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
