Architectura Borealis is Simon Hughes’ s interpetation of Plug In ICA’s new facility at 460 Portage Avenue designed by DPA+PSA+DIN Collective, conflated with the wall mosaic Northern Lights by John Graham (1963), which was installed in the former Winnipeg International Airport terminal. Hughes’ print features a grid of white vertical stripes representing our new building’s striking architectural “tabs,” overlapping organic forms reminiscent of Northern Lights. Produced originally as a watercolour drawing, Architectura Borealis has been published by Plug In Editions as a limited edition serigraph, printed at Martha Street Studios. Following the construction of Plug In ICA and the demolition of the old airport terminal, this print is an important marker of our city’s changing urban landscape.

Simon Hughes was born in Winnipeg in 1973. His art practice encompasses painting, drawing, film and video. Since 2000, he has worked almost exclusively on paper with watercolour, collage and other media, moving from early narrative works exploring regionalism and ideas of “the north” into more recent abstract works investigating the history of Modernism, 1960s pop-psychology, and the mark-making of children. Hughes’ large, multi-paneled watercolour installations have been included in exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada, the Confederation Centre for the Arts, Plug In ICA and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. His video work has been exihibted at museums and film festivals worldwide, most recently st the Sweeney Art Gallery of the University of California, Riverside and la maison rouge in Paris. He holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba (1996) and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine (2010).
