|Isabelle Hayeur||Biography: Isabelle Hayeur was born in Montreal in 1969. She completed a BFA in 1996 and an MFA in 2002 at Université du Québec à Montréal. Since the late 1990s, she has devoted herself full-time to the visual arts. As an image-making artist, she is known primarily for her large digital montages. She has also produced several site-specific installations, public artworks, videos and a few Web art works. Her work is situated within a critical approach to the environment and urban development. In the some 20 years she spent living in a suburb, she was confronted with the spectacle of urban sprawl and the many disappearances that come with it. Her approach is related to this experience and is nourished by environmental discourses, such as the problems of landscape planning.
