THEY/THEM and sometimes WHY


Legion Seven is an artist whose work is an erratic vehicle on a splendid path. Their projects emerge in bodies as diverse as the imagination; consistent only in a refractive departure from the literal cult rigidity into which Seven was born. The wreckage of this rigidity, and a bizarre usurping of its biblical language is among what can be found woven in the story- telling tapestries that we experience from Seven today. Threaded with dream-mythology, science-fiction, chaos-logic and exuberant lies, these are the tapestries that drape the path wherewith Seven gains momentum and puts momentum on display.

Since arriving in Basel a near decade ago, Seven has enriched the city’s cultural scene with divergence, vulnerability and experimentation. In 2018, their multi-medial collaborative story-telling performance “The Several Ways I’ve Died In My Imagination” was awarded the Baslermedienkunstpreis. Later, Seven was formally recognized for their overall artistic contributions with Basel’s Kulturförderpreis of 2019.
