Myfanwy MacLeod, or There and Back Again is an ambitious new monograph that focuses on the Vancouver artist’s recent sculpture and photography, in which the sexually charged music of Led Zeppelin and the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien are key references. A 1977 Chevrolet Camaro on a rotisserie stand, a large-scale modular sculpture that resembles both the “stacks” of Donald Judd and the wall of Marshall speaker cabinets used by Led Zeppelin, and a series of origami sculptures produced by folding Playboy centrefolds of Dorothy Stratten all appear in this exciting new book on one of Canada’s foremost contemporary artists.
This book was published on the occasion of an exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and Museum London, curated by Grant Arnold and Cassandra Getty, and presented at the Gallery from March 8 to June 8, 2014.
