Aude Moreau lives and works in Montreal. She completed in 1991 a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at the Paris 8 University, before settling in Quebec and pursuing scenography studies. She then earned her Master’s degree in Visual and Media Arts in Montreal (2010), developing a body of work that integrates her dual training in scenography and visual arts. Aude Moreau’s work has been showcased both in Canada and internationally at events such as the Prague Biennale (2011), Montreal’s Nuit blanche and Art Souterrain (2010). Aude Moreau has also presented her art at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (2017), the Casino Luxembourg (2016), The Power Plant (Toronto, 2016), the Canadian Cultural Center (Paris, 2015), the UQAM Gallery (2015), and at the Fonderie Darling (Montreal, 2008). Her work is part of the collections of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Luxembourg Museum of Contemporary Art (MUDAM), the UQAM Gallery as well as numerous private collections. She has also received the Louis Comtois Prize (2016), the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art (2011) and the Powerhouse Prize from La Centrale (2011).

Approach and works on display

Reconstruction (2012)

Reconstruction, a 2012 video artwork by Aude Moreau, offers a unique perspective on the New York City skyline. The slow and deliberate travelling movement almost transforms the familiar cityscape into a maquette, unveiling the city’s architectural and financial history from midtown to Battery Park, with a focus on the One World Trade Center construction site. Following Moreau’s earlier film Sortir, which documented office lighting manipulation in the Montreal Stock Exchange Tower, Reconstruction previews upcoming projects in Los Angeles and New York City. This exhibition, along with Janet Biggs’ works, is part of Montréal/Brooklyn, an exchange between the two cities initiated by the Centre Clark.

At the 2024 Art Souterrain Festival, Aude Moreau presents La Ligne bleue #1, a photomontage from her in situ project La Ligne bleue planned for Manhattan. Spanning twenty buildings in the financial district, La Ligne bleue aims to trace a 65-meter-high horizon line from inside skyscraper offices, representing potential sea-level rise due to melting ice. Using blue office light and a dark background, Moreau creates a luminous trace revealing the ghostly imprint of New York’s architectural grid, offering conceptual insights into climate change motivations.
