B.G-Osborne is a Transmedia artist originally hosted on Treaty 20 territory (Anishinabewaki/Huron-Wendat land, Ontario) currently working in Tio'tia:ke (Kanien'kehá:ka and Huron-Wendat land, Montréal). They graduated from NSCAD University (Mi'kmaw land, Wabanaki Confederacy, Halifax) in 2014 with a BFA in Intermedia.
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.
I continuously attempt to creatively unpack and share my relationships with fluctuating gender embodiment, white settler 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.
