“C’est en les paysages que s’élaborent jour après jour notre sensibilité et notre métaphysique du monde. Et c’est par eux que l’écrivain, plus tard, retrouvera ses sources et ses repères, au point que chaque fois qu’il décrira un paysage, que ce soit en son nom ou par personnages interposés, il fera sans s’en rendre compte son autoportrait.”

- Jean Pélégri

Sarah Bodri (b.1987) is a Toronto-based artist working primarily in analogue photography. She holds an Honors BA from York University in French Language and Literature + Womyn and Gender studies.

Bodri's self-taught practice employs portraiture as a means of empowerment as she strives to transcend objectifying power dynamics implicit in the photographic medium by employing radical empathy and vulnerability while working. Newer experimental works incorporating the physical landscape and human DNA function as participatory portraits.

In 2014 Bodri began a long-term investigative portrait project WWORK focused on womxn and non-binary artists in Toronto which re-allocates value to artistic labour, expands the category of 'woman', identifies womxn artists as labourers and producers of culture, and establishes new and alternative models for future generations of artists. WWORK, is an Active Archive and a work in progress.

In 2017 she pariticipated in her second residency at A-Z West (by Andrea Zittel) and most recently carried out a self-directed residency in Joshua Tree, California. Her work explores boundary establishment/ dissolution, reflexivity/ reflection, affect and environment, and is always informed by a radical feminist worldview.
