Alyssa Bornn’s artist talk

Alyssa Bornn is an interdisciplinary artist, experimental filmmaker, and organizer based in Winnipeg, MB. Her practice regularly utilizes traditional photographic methods alongside alternative and outdated digital modes of image capturing, writing, and constructed spaces to explore the act of image building as well as our relationships to images.

She holds a BFA (Hons.) from the University of Maniotba and is a member of Open City Cinema, a co-programmer for the Winnipeg Underground Film Festival, and is an active member of Light Terrors- a loose collective showcasing moving image and audio works as live performance. She has run workshops for Platform Centre for Photographic + Digital Arts, PAVED Arts, and independently as Professional Development.

In 2018, Bornn was curated into the aceartinc. student exhibition and subsequently awarded the Scott Wachal Memorial Bursary. As part of this, recipients are invited to give a public talk about their work.

The Scott Wachal Memorial Bursary

This bursary is available to art students who have been curated into the Annual Student Exhibition. The bursary is intended to support a project or an opportunity (such as a workshop or residency) that will positively impact the artist’s practice. In 2013 the youngest artist curated into our Annual Student Exhibition passed away. In his memory aceartinc. created the Scott Wachal Memorial Student Bursary.
