How to Interpret a Sunset
Jean Borbridge is a queer, working-class multimedia artist out of Treaty 1. Using photography, video, and installation, Jean seeks to understand the illusion and spectacle of photography in relation to the body, advertisement, labour, and the fallibility of such endeavours. Building community, relationships, and solidarity are crucial to her practice.
Borbridge holds a BFA honours from the University of Manitoba (2019). She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Neutral Ground, Platform Centre for Photographic & Digital Arts, Underscore, and Art Mur. She is the recipient of the Manitoba Arts Council Create Grant (2022), the Winnipeg Arts Council Individual Grant (2022) University of Manitoba Undergraduate Research Award (2023) Platform Photography Award (2020), and was longlisted for the Amia Photography Award (2017).
