Aurora Robson: A Practice


'Aurora Robson: A Practice' has been added to FILM.

'A Practice' was produced to coincide with multi-media artist Aurora Robson's largest exhibition yet: 'Sacrifice + Bliss,' at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbis, Ohio.

Initially inspired by childhood nightmares and a resolution she came to in adulthood: “Why not take a nightmare landscape and make it beautiful?, Aurora transforms discarded materials, excess packaging and junk mail into works of art.

"I like the challenge of working with debris -- it is a totally different experience from that of going to an art supply store and picking out what you want to use to create with. Instead, you are at the mercy of the world around you; in a way you are reflecting life on Earth from the underbelly of the beast." (source)

Edited over the summer of 2012, 'A Practice' features cinematography by Marshall Coles, music by Nicholas Shifrin, and will be playing alongside Aurora's work at the Conservatory through April 28th.
