“We welcome the opportunity to have Fiona explore the complexities of her identity through these two pieces: one almost overwhelming in its size, but offering an inner space for solitude; the other a foreboding metaphor for the future of our evolving culture and disability identified peoples’ place in it.” – Barak adé Soleil, Curator and Artistic Director of Tangled Art + Disability
The Maze Project & A Distant Memory 2
The Maze Project is an inventive large scale work encompassing the gallery with its intricate repeating patterns and symbolic pair of shoes hovering above, encased thickly in concrete. For Legg, the installation represents challenges she, a self-identified Mad person, encounters when navigating the world. In addition to this new work, a new version of Legg’s A Distant Memory will be exhibited. Originally created for an outdoor garden space, this industrial sculptural piece will be reimagined within the interior of the gallery in complement to the maze.
Fiona Legg was born in England and moved to Canada at an early age. Always interested in the arts, she has tried her hand at a wide variety of media over the years. Almost entirely self-taught, Legg has always had an affinity for anything textile related. She has lived in various places across the country, giving her a unique perspective of Canada. Legg currently works full time as an artist in Barrie, Ontario.
