Hao, Sophia (Recipient)
Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)
Co-curated by Sophia Y. Hao Maude Johnson, Ambiguous Becoming: Artist’s Moving Image from Canada was a collaboration between Cooper Gallery University of Dundee and MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image in Montréal, Canada.
Exhibition dates: 24 January – 22 February 2020
Bringing together a broad spectrum of artists and collaborations from Canada, including artist duo Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau, artist collaborative group Jérôme Havre, Cauleen Smith, and Camille Turner, and Victoria Sin, the exhibition and associate public events draws out and delineates the rich scope of aesthetic, critical, and philosophical positions underscoring the politics of the performative body. Recognising the implicit struggles against colonialism, patriarchy, and capitalism waged on and within the body, the exhibition actively asserts the necessity of claiming ownership of the body throughout its performative and discursive iterations.
