3 Works: Heidi McKenzie on Legacy

In this live online event hosted by Chief Curator Sequoia Miller, Heidi McKenzie will discuss three of her artworks in connection to the theme “Legacy.” McKenzie is a Toronto-based ceramic installation artist whose work has been collected and exhibited internationally. Her recent works relate to her father’s exile from Trinidad to Canada, and her own mixed ancestry and healing journey.

About the Artist

Heidi McKenzie is a Toronto-based ceramic installation artist. She has been practising full-time since graduating with an MFA in Art Criticism and Curatorial Practice from OCADU in 2014. Heidi left behind a 20-year career in arts management and radio production to apprentice with Mini Singh in her father’s ancestral home of India in 2009. She has worked as an artist in residence in Jingdezhen, China; Bali, Indonesia; Guldagergaard, Denmark; Sydney, Australia; Kecskemet, Hungary and Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Her work has been collected and exhibited internationally. Heidi works in abstraction and in series in order to convey complex narratives and/or social commentary about herself, a culture, or her hybrid identity. In 2014 Heidi began working with image on clay. Her recent works relate to her own healing journey, her father’s second exile from Trinidad to Canada, and her mixed ancestry: Indo-Caribbean indentured workers, and migrants who fled Ireland during the Famine.
