Born in Outaouais, Quebec, Sheena Hoszko examines sculptural materiality as it relates to institutional power dynamics by mapping geographic sites on a 1:1 scale. She obtains these measurements by walking the perimeter and measuring her steps. Her most recent projects, which translate detention centres and prisons, stem from her family’s experiences with incarceration. She studied at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design and obtained a MFA from Concordia University where she received a SSHRC grant for her research. Her projects have been shown in Argentina, Germany, Scotland, and Canada. Hoszko lives in Montreal where she also works with rad folks as a non-profit bookkeeper.
