Aude Guivarc'h CA/QC — A Reflection on the Invisible
A Reflexion on the Invisible is a massive yet graceful sculptural installation, shaped from mirrored acrylic sheets that reflect people and environments. By day, the sculpture fades in its surroundings; by night, the semi-transparent mirror reflects less light. This dichotomy between brightness and darkness symbolizes the way alienated and ostracized people might choose to camouflage in society, nighttime allowing them to shine and truly be themselves.
Montréal multimedia artist Aude Guivarc’h questions our relationship with nature and current environmental issues facing humans through a queer and ecofeminist lens.
The artist has been collaborating with Moment Factory since 2010, and helped create Billy Eilish’s augmented reality experience, Where Do We Go? The Livestream, in 2020.
Guivarc’h incorporates a number of mediums in her artistic practice, including drawing, calligraphy, murals, sculpture, photography, interactive 3D design and animation.
