Resin, paint, plastic, electrical communication, fiber glass 240 x 150 x 40 cm 2015

Handcrafted by Neil Beloufa, this is a sculpture composed of paint on fibreglass and mounted on a sculpted steel structure with wheels. The sculpture contains four oversized helmet forms, all placed around a window. The artist edits the sculpture and the space surrounding it; he constructs meaning by offering relations. For him, what defines an artwork is not the actual object but the relation he develops with it. His intention is to facilitate intersections between the different meanings that viewers may discover on their own.

This fiberglass sculpture handcrafted by Neïl Beloufa, who rethinks the space with a diverse, multi-layered structure surrounding a window. To the artist, the essence of an artwork lies not in its figurative attributes but in the relation between the artwork and the audience.

Neil Beloufa

The installations of French-Algerian artist Neïl Beloufa reveal complex architectural structures, handcrafted with cheap and easily available materials; everyday objects such as fans, plants, and speakers are carefully assembled into larger forms that seem to be haphazardly presented or arbitrarily constructed. Beloufa is also a keen filmmaker. Often combined with video projection, his sculptures constitute, with moving images and sounds, viewing spaces that evoke cinematic experiences.
