Lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
Isabelle Hayeur was born in Montreal Canada, in 1969. She has a BFA (1996) and a MFA (2002) from Universite du Quebec a Montreal. Since the late 90s, Isabelle has developed a distinctive photographic practice. She is primarily known for her large digital montages but she has also produced several site-specific installations, public artworks and videos. Her approach to photography goes beyond documentation. Doctoring her images, she fabricates seamless representations by merging various sites into a single territory. Her work is situated within a critical approach to the environment and urban development. Over the past few years, she has been investigating the ways in which we invest in and occupy space, trying to gain a deeper understanding of landscape states in order to comprehend our societies’ relationships to their environments. Her works have been widely exhibited across Canada, Europe, the United States, Mexico, Argentina and Japan. She has exhibited at Le Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal (MACM), The Massachusetts Museum of contemporary art (MassMoca), The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago (MoCP), Prefix ICA in Toronto, Noorderlicht Photography in Groningen, Netherlands, The Neuer Berliner Kuntsverein in Berlin and at Les Rencontres internationales de la photographie in Arles, France.
