Nadia Belerique (born 1982; lives and works in Toronto) 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, and has recently exhibited at such venues as Daniel Faria Gallery, XPACE, The Drake Hotel, Diaz Contemporary and Gallery TPW in Toronto. She has an upcoming show at 221A in Vancouver.
