About Neïl BeloufaView Profile »
French-Algerian artist Neïl Beloufa works with film, video, installation and sculpture. Whilst his films display professional high-end production means, the sculptural components of Beloufa’s works exhibit a strong handmade, studio-based aesthetic with rough cuts of building materials attached to heavy metal framework. The autonomy of these materials and aesthetic endeavour contrasts any notion of smooth and seamless professionalisation of industrial sculptural production. His installations often integrate projections of his films, sometimes across multiple screen layers. These structures both literally and figuratively support the films and extend them into space and serve to frame the presentation of a variety of sliced images, objects and photographs, multiplying the projections and turning them voluminous. Beloufa has described the status of a work of art as an intermediary object – within its relationship to space and viewer, but also as sculptures as well as projection surfaces. Beloufa has been the subject of solo exhibitions at many institutions, including MoMA, New York, K11 Foundation, Shanghai, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin, Stiftung Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, Stroom Den Haag, The Hague, La Casa Encedida, Madrid, The Banff Centre, Banff, ICA, London, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. Recent group exhibitions include Marcel Duchamp Prize, Paris and Nîmes (2015), Future Generation Art Prize, Kiev (2015), New Museum, New York, 9th Taipei Biennale (2014), 12th Lyon Biennale (2013), 55th Venice Biennale (2013), and the Paris Triennale (2012).Interested in consigning works by Neïl Beloufa?
