Isabelle Hayeur received her BFA and MFA from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She is best known for her large-scale photo montages, video art, and site-specific installations. While her practice has slowly shifted from one medium to the next, she has consistently worked as a social critic who analyzes and investigates the relationship between humanity with landscape, space, architecture, and design. Her photo montages and installations continually call into question the reality of the "social spaces" which surround us.

Hayeur has participated in many major public shows such as at the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin, the Tampa Museum of Art and Akbank Sanat in Istanbul. Her first solo retrospective was held in 2006 and shown across Canada. Her works can be found in more than twenty collections internationally.
