For over 20 years Gillie and Marc have created art in an autobiographical way, embodying their own selves through their iconic characters of Rabbitwoman and Dogman and the tale of their unique love story. Local Legends was born out of this realisation that we all have a story to tell.
Gillie and Marc’s project Local Legends will offer specific communities the chance to have created a custom bronze sculpture that embodies the spirit of who they are! The collection in Local Legends will consist of a series of site-specific pieces, which will act as a catalyst for connection and a deeper understanding of the local culture and people. Our goal is to achieve 100 Local Legends in 100 locations across both Australia and New Zealand! In taking part, each location will be connected to other Gillie and Marc sculptures in a shared collective network, giving visibility to these unique narratives that continue to shape our sense of cultural identity, and that may otherwise go unheard or be forgotten.
