A Parisian native of Algerian descent, Neïl Beloufa plays upon our sense of narrative reliability in his videos and installations. Often using the interview format to create video works that mix fact and fiction with unsettling results, he challenges the authority of the narrator and questions the reality presented by the media and our reliance on those presentations. Similarly, the objects found in his installations hover somewhere in between their useful function and their potential to signify. As the artist himself states, ‘I like the idea of having an object or sculpture whose status is unstable, shifting.’ Beloufa’s work was displayed in Kiev as one of the finalists of the 2014 Next Generation Art Prize.
