Les vidéos de Neil Beloufa installent des climats où toute logique semble perdue, décortiquent les icônes de la culture populaire, interrogent les stéréotypes et les utopies occidentales, disent notre monde en images, ses mensonges, ses rêves. Elles posent sur nos mythes le regard alerte d’un jeune artiste cosmopolite.
