AURORA CIVITAS: Installation d'art éphémère par Aurélia Bizouard - Critique par Emilie Lemay

“L’installation artistique éphémère d’Aurélia Bizouard, artiste basée à Vancouver, représente l’aboutissement de la dernière édition du projet Contextualisations, une résidence de création de deux semaines organisée par le Réseau Nord-Ouest au cœur de la francophonie manitobaine afin de construire une œuvre qui s’y incorpore étroitement.

Aurora Civitas est une installation immersive de peintures et de sculptures utilisant la projection de lumière à travers une œuvre d’art dessinée sur un panneau de verre, danslaquelle le public peut explorer le thème de Contextualisations. Aurélia a d’abord élaboréson travail au studio de la Maison des Artistes Visuels pour ensuite le créer au CentreCulturel Franco-Manitobain sur la terrasse du Théâtre Cercle Molière. Ses projections de lumière spécifiques à cet espace public extérieur éclairent la noirceur hivernale pour un soir seulement ()

- Emilie Lemay - Commissaire et membre du jury


"The ephemeral artistic installation of Vancouver-based Aurélia Bizouard represents the culmination of the latest edition of the Contextualisations project, a two-week creative residency organized by the Réseau Nord-Ouest at the heart of the Francophonie of Manitoba to build a work that incorporates itself closely.

Aurora Civitas is an immersive installation of paintings and sculptures using light projection through a work of art drawn on a glass panel, in which the public can explore the theme of Contextualisations. Aurélia first worked in the studio of the “Maison des Artistes Visuels” and then created it at the “Francophone Cultural Centre of Manitoba” on the patio of the “Théâtre Cercle Molière”. Her artwork made of light projections, specific to this outdoor public space, illuminates the winter blackness for one evening only”

Harvest Dinner at Woodward's atrium nov 4th 2018

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 

Come out and enjoy a nice meal, paint away and help a good cause!

See you there!!

CAPTURE FESTIVAL - opening April 17th 2018 with Douglas C W Kennedy


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.
WHERE: RAILTOWN STUDIOS - 321 Railway St, Vancouver
From 6 to 8 pm
