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, strewn with dream-mythology, science-fiction, chaos-logic and exuberant lies, drapes 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. For this, they were formally recognised in 2019 with the Basel Kulturförderpreis of 2019.
