We are thrilled to hear that community member and friend of Images Festival Stephanie Comilang is the winner of the 2019 Sobey Art Award!

Artist Stephanie Comilang divides her practice between Toronto and Berlin. Her documentary-based works create narratives that look at how our understandings of mobility, capital and labour on a global scale are shaped through various cultural and social factors.

Her work has been shown at the Ghost:2561 Bangkok video and performance art triennale, SALTS Basel, UCLA, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Asia Art Archive in America (New York). She received her BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design.

Comilang also created the promotional trailer for the 32nd Images Festival, as well as performed a DJ set following the live performance of HEAT by Aisha Sasha John at The Costume House on April 13th this year.
