About

La Centrale galerie Powerhouse is proud to present the exhibition A Thousand Cuts by the artist B.G-Osborne, from February 12, 2021 to March 21, 2021. Because of the pandemic, this exhibition will be visible only from the window of La Centrale at 4296 St-Laurent Boulevard, between Marie-Anne and Rachel Streets. The video A Thousand Cuts is also visible on our website.

A Thousand Cuts is a three channel found-footage video installation that addresses the misrepresentation of trans people in film and television and the ongoing reality of violence that trans people encounter. The compilation is accompanied by a scrolling text video that lists over 1000 names of documented trans murder victims from January 2016 to September 2020.

B.G-Osborne is a queer, bigender settler of Scottish and British descent born and raised 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 gendervariant 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 noncommercial galleries across Turtle Island. https://bgosborne.weebly.com/
