ABOUT THE ARTIST

​Aurora Sciabarra is a visual artist whose practice spans from the disciplines of painting, to collages and installations.


Her research is focused on the concepts of need and choices, consumption,  over-production of consumer goods and agency.


Through her work she investigates to what extent the human beings ‘s way of living
can affect the environment.

For example Sciabarra took on investigating the presence and disappearance of the bee. By making latex bees, and inviting the public to make flowers out of beeswax and then hand-pollinate the flowers, Aurora was seeking to unlock what it is like to do what bees have been doing for us for centuries.

"Human activities, in particular industrial agriculture, according to leading scientists in many field of studies, have put bees in danger of extinction.


If that happened, the world as we know it would rapidly change. Without bees pollinators the world would lose many of its flowers as well as many of its plants and trees and we could end up living in a different environment."
