Video still, Centre Never Apart (2018)
As a transmedia artist, I continuously attempt to cratively unpack and share my relationships with fluctuating gender embodiment, white settler privilege, queerness, and mental illness. My practice is physically flexible while conceptually grounded in openness about my experiences and identity. Through my work and everyday interactions, I aim to contribute to the growing repertoire of gender variant narratives and deconstruct problematic representations of gender variant identities in popular culture and institutional spaces. My practice is concerned with using accessible mediums and materials.
B.G-Osborne is a gender variant settler of Scottish and British descent originally hosted on Treaty 20 territory (Southern Ontario), currently working in Tio'tia:ke (Montréal).
Osborne’s ongoing projects seek to address the complexities and revisionary potential of gender-variant representation/embodiment, and unpack their experiences with mental illness and well-kept family secrets. They place great importance in showcasing their work in artist run centres and non-commercial galleries across Turtle Island.
