Gabi Dao ~ [21st century] Canadian
Gabi Dao is an artist and co-organizer at Duplex, a DIY project space + studio collective based the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm [Musqueam], Skwxwú7mesh [Squamish], and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh [Tsleil-Waututh] Nations. Her interdisciplinary practice insists on counter-memory, intimacy, hyphenation, multiple truths and blurred temporalities through the pursuit of sculpture, installation, moving image and sound. She prioritizes complications, questions and productive confusions against the aesthetic systems of homogeneity, complicity and control. Often, her work begins with interests in ‘patchwork’ conceptions of time and materiality, tracing histories of the everyday through themes of globalization, consumption, belief and belonging. She has recently exhibited at the Kamias Triennale, Quezon City, Philippines ; the Nanaimo Art Gallery  and Vancouver institutions such as grunt gallery, Simon Fraser University’s Audain Gallery [both 2019]; the Western Front, Artspeak [both 2017]; 221a and Spare Room [both 2015].
