Janet Bellotto is from Toronto, and is currently working in Dubai. She graduated from the Sculpture/Installation program at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, and received an MFA from Concordia University, Montreal.
Her practice encompasses sculpture, installation, photography, video and performance. Water flows through her work: oceans and waves, submersion and reflections, in-between states that are fluid and aqueous. Bellotto has initiated various artist collectives based on producing site-specific work or using spaces outside of gallery walls and creating cultural art exchanges.
She has exhibited in various cities including Beijing, Dubai, New York, Mexico City and Venice. Recent solo and group exhibitions include: (2010) Drowning Ophelia, Stratford Gallery, Stratford, Canada; (2009) Point of Encounter, Tashkeel, Dubai, UAE; (2008) WAVE, The LAB, New York City, USA; Chinese Character Biennial, KU Art Center, Beijing, China; (2007) Dehisce, kkprojects, New Orleans, USA. She splits her time between Toronto, Dubai and Venice.
