Entretien en studio par Jacques Dufresne - Boulevard du Pacifique - 14 février 2019
The Gibsons Public Art Gallery is please to host the new exhibition “WHAT MATTERS” from three artists: “Felt A La Main With Love”, Catherine Tableau and Aurelia Bizouard with her collection KINTSUGI.
With digital technologies dominating more and more today's visual arts, the three artists of
?WHAT MATTERS! reclaim and question in their practice the use of common and accessible material found in every day : wool, glass, and plaster.
Within a ritualized and compulsive action of making, they push back the traditional use, the limits of form, and they play with the medium's constraints while exploring its qualities.
What matters and what the three artists share here through an echoing fragmented pattern is the tactile nature and true essence of each material - wool, glass, and plaster - rising to a sensitive, emotive artistic value.
KINTSUGI - In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Aurelia Bizouard creates art with glass panels and reverse painting questioning the meaning of life. The use of glass - a transparent fragile matter - is like a metaphor for life, its fragility and its strength. - Aurelia Bizouard
The ‘Salon Dorée’ (Golden Lounge) is going to be a warm, artistic and sophisticated space that will have a free flow side entrance off of the main room. This room will be about the old-world Parisian bistro atmosphere with a golden twist. Live art installations, gold dancers, gilded frames, feathers and changing screen will put this risqué space to task as it is centred with an exclusive Absinthe cocktail bar. Both the cold and hot Absinthe rituals will be served. The entire event will be hosted by the Green Fairy and the space will feature numerous sponsor/partner activation and installation POS opportunities seamlessly integrated into the overall thematic and flow of the evening.
Aurelia Bizouard’s unique French GOLD collection art on display for this event.
Curated by Kirsten Larsen: “Super stoked to be curating a Paris themed Pop up art gallery complete with some amazing live painters for the upcoming Mid Night in Paris New Years Eve party! Perfect way to start 2019”

The Woodward’s community is coming together once again to host the 9th Annual Woodward’s Harvest Dinner. The event will take place on Sunday, November 4th starting at 5:00 pm in the Woodward’s Atrium. Come join us and enjoy a tasty dinner! We’ll feed over 1000 of Woodward’s neighbours and friends. The food for the meal has been generously donated by the incredible people at Nesters Market at Woodward’s and other Woodward’s partners, and will be cooked and prepared by the professional team at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.
We will also have the artist Aurelia Bizouard (@aureliabizouard) who will be on site for a live community painting, created from a light placed behind her glass artwork, and that will be projected onto the canvas. Everyone is invited to be part of it and colour the canvas! This public engagement project(@kulturelia) provides an immersive experience, by enabling people to create a work of art, to be part of it, to connect to each other and to represent the Woodward’s community. The painting will then be placed in the atrium of Woodward’s as it belongs to the people who created it. The original glass art piece will then be auctioned off and the funds will go towards our charity partner, PHS Community Services Society.
PHS Community Services Society is a charitable non-profit organization operating in Vancouver’s DTES. A gift as little as $25 can provide someone in the Downtown Eastside community with BC ID, something many individuals can’t afford and desperately need. To donate online visit www.phs.ca/donate
Come out and enjoy a nice meal, paint away and help a good cause!
See you there!!

Visual Arts — Collective Creation
We would like people to connect with art, with themselves and to each other's. We believe this can happen by providing an immersive experience, by enabling people to create a work of art or to be part of it. The first step is to create the painting on a glass panel through which light will be projected. The designs on the glass are created by the artist Aurelia Bizouard around one major theme. The second step is to engage people in the creative process by having them paint and fill-out with colours the lines of light on a canvas (or a wall) from the projection of the glass artwork (the light projection will be on friday evening)
More on BC Culture Days:
Full program on LeCollectif:
A wall in Port Coquitlam’s Lions Park will get dashes of colour when the city hosts its annual Rivers and Trails Festival Sunday.
And visual artist Aurelia Bizouard wants the community to help her paint the 38’ live light mural during the event that runs from noon to 4 p.m. in the park.
Bizouard, who splits her time between Vancouver, Los Angeles and Paris, will start by painting nature scenes from Lions Park on the back of a glass panel.
When done, she’ll shine a bright light onto the glass, of which the lines will be projected onto the wall so participants can trace its lines and fill out the canvas.
Bizouard told The Tri-City News her Light Lines Painting project in PoCo will be similar to the artwork she designed at the Woodward’s building in Vancouver; last year, she also set up a live light mural during the popular Eastside Culture Crawl, in east Vancouver.
“My main purpose is to connect people to art in a social setting,” she said. “It has an impact not only for them but for the community. It delivers a strong message.”
Bizouard said participants aren’t afraid of a blank canvas when there’s a general sketch lit up in front of them “because they can just follow the lines and then have the freedom to express themselves with colour in the spaces in between. It’s just magic what happens.”
She added, “When they step out of their comfort zone and see the results, they have the confidence to be connected to something larger than themselves.”
Bizouard said she hopes to get at least 50 people out to help her with the image (a tent will be set up if it rains); a follow-up workshop will be held the next day.
The finished work will be ready by late October.

Human beings have all time questioned life and themselves. Why do we do what we do? What is the philosophy behind it? Why do we work? Why do we love? What inspires us? Why do we care? What is our purpose? What is our own existence about? Do we have an answer to life? Are we at the right place? It all all goes back to the original purpose, cause or belief within ourselves. The “Golden Circle” collection is an invitation to question your own journey.

About the Vancouver Design Week:
Curiosity is part of human nature. Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?, painted by Paul Gauguin, could be considered the inspiring element that brought together Douglas C.W. Kennedy and Aurelia Bizouard. Both create images of the body superimposed with paintings and photographs of nature and architecture, images that reflect the human soul. Delightful images, dreamy images, and universally intriguing images reveal timelessness and infinity. Images on black and white photographic paper highlight this phenomenon of existence we all share.
