B.G-Osborne is a Transmedia artist from rural Ontario, currently working in Montreal. Their work focuses on exploring and interrogating the potential of gender-variant embodiment to serve as both a tool for gender deconstruction and revision. They graduated from NSCAD University in 2014 with a BFA in Intermedia.
Osborne’s ongoing projects seek to address the complexities of trans representation and their experiences with mental illness, as well as unpacking family secrets. They place great importance in showcasing their work in artist run centres and non-commercial galleries throughout Canada.
I continuously attempt to creatively unpack and share my relationships with fluctuating trans-embodiment, white privilege, queerness, mental illness and family. As a Transmedia artist my practice is physically flexible while conceptually grounded in openness about my experiences and identity. Through my work and every-day interactions I aim to contribute to the growing repertoire of gender-variant narratives. My practice is concerned with using accessible mediums and materials to convey personal stories and encounters.
