Nadia Belerique constructs installations that engage with the poetics of perception and asks how images perform in contemporary culture. Primarily invested in questions around materiality and dematerialization through the illusion of photographs, her image-based works are often interrupted by sculptural objects. She received her MFA from the University of Guelph, is a board member at G Gallery, and has recently exhibited at such venues as Narwhal, Daniel Faria Gallery, XPACE, The Drake Hotel, and Diaz Contemporary in Toronto. She has upcoming shows at 221A in Vancouver, and Daniel Faria Gallery in Toronto for 2014.
