Sabrina Chamberland, born and raised in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography at the University of Ottawa. Chamberland’s works investigate the precarious and visceral qualities of the human body to further explore the conflicting dichotomies that become inherent when put upon close examination, such as the body’s capacity to attract and repulse, to comfort and estrange, to enlighten and disorient. Through fragmented studies of the flesh and atypical visual juxtapositions, Chamberland’s photographs further aim to question the body’s relationship to notions of gender, identity, technology, and ultimately, the human condition. Her recent works have been included in local exhibitions, notably a permanent installation at University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Social Sciences and two solo shows at Gallery 115 and Studio Sixty Six in Ottawa. Chamberland’s works have also been featured in the 2014 Figureworks Annual Award Show for which she won first prize.
