Join us for a lecture with Isabelle Hayeur, whose work is featured alongside more than 20 artists as part of The Edge of the Earth: Climate Change in Photography and Video, on view at the Ryerson Image Centre until December 4. Hayeur is best known for her photographs and experimental videos, situated within a critical approach to the environment, urban development and social conditions.

About the artist:

ISABELLE HAYEUR (Canadian, b 1969), lives and works in Quebec, Canada. Political and poetic, Isabelle Hayeur’s work focuses on the evolution of places and communities in the context of current neoliberal sociopolitics, probing the relationships between nature and culture and the idea of their (false) opposition. Her large-scale photographs and experimental videos document altered landscapes, industrial areas, tourist sites, abandoned places, urban fringes and underprivileged regions, with prevalent themes of alienation, uprooting and disenchantment.

Hayeur’s work has been shown nationally and internationally in galleries such as the Pinnacles Gallery in Townsville, Australia, 2016; Today Art Museum in Beijing, China, 2015; The Xi’an Art Museum, China, 2014; the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal for the Montreal Biennale, Canada, 2014; and the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, France, 2012. Her works reside in many collections, including those of the National Gallery of Canada; the Fonds national d’art contemporain in Paris, France; Museum
of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rijeka in Croatia; and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, USA. Hayeur is represented by Hugues Charbonneau in Montreal, Canada.
