Aurora Civitas is an exhibition of glass paintings, glass sculptures, and immersive installations by Aurelia Bizouard using light projection through the artwork drawn on a glass panel, in which audiences can explore the theme of Contextualisations that subverts the concept of one self, place and context in which an action, utterance, or expression occurs, and can only be understood relative to that context.
This project highlights the Contextualisation of oneself through a place and spaces that bring together and isolate the North and West of Canada (residency in Winnipeg, march 2019).
“Aurelia Bizouard’s project, Aurora Civitas, is an immersive work that was installed in March in Winnipeg. It is a powerful work that existed for only one night. It is/was ephemeral, like its inspirations, the Aurora Borealis and all human life.” (…)

Reverse glass painting with black light.
The black light highlights the colours of the plants and create a blossoming effect to show the real beauty of nature and its fragility. The blue dark line that goes down along the plants represents the oil. Hidden golden glitters in the white paint are a metaphor to the “gold rush”, nowadays the oil and gas industry, very present in our society.
