Beloufa’s installation employs a myriad of unexpected (often humorous) objects, that curator Matt Williams explains as disruptions to any overarching dogma emanating from Beloufa’s surrounding video works. What the exhibition lacks are the commonly used floor decals and maps that curators produce and the majority of the public depends upon in order to determine how and when to engage.
