Genesis Belanger’s work is characterized by the treatment of objects as surrogates for the body. Sculpted in porcelain and concrete and tinted in fondant hues, everyday objects take on human features, made uncomfortably familiar as they begin to resemble us. Belanger’s still life sculptures—compositions of furniture, fruit, and flowers loaded with signs and symbols—are increasingly contextualized by their surroundings, psychologically charged spaces created by the artist. The effect is uncanny, toeing the line between comfort and disquiet, the beautiful and the strange.
