Donna Legault is an experimental artist based in Ottawa, Canada.
Her cross-disciplinary practice includes sound art, electronic installation, sculpture, and performance. The intersection of these practices focus on the resonance of sound as a dynamic extension of everyday actions. Her interest in the perception of sound draws participants’ attention towards the relational qualities of “noise” as a material and temporal presence.
Donna Legault has a degree in Art History from Carleton University, and in Visual Arts from the University of Ottawa.
This coming year, Donna will be teaching courses in Electronic Arts at both The Davis School of Art in Ottawa and at The University of Ottawa.
She has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions, festivals and conferences, including Send + Receive in Winnipeg, Subtle Technologies Festival in Toronto; Emmedia and Truck Gallery in Calgary; Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery; AXENEO7 in Gatineau; Espace F in Matane, Quebec; Maison de la Culture in Gatineau; DAÏMÕN in Gatineau; Karsh Masson Gallery in Ottawa; InterAccess Media Arts Centre in Toronto; Artspace in Peterborough, PDCON Exhibition in Weimar/Berlin, Germany, ISSTA Conference in Maynooth, Ireland; New Living Arts Exhibition, IMOCA, Dublin, Ireland.
Donna’s continuing practice is supported by residency opportunities and grants from the Ontario Arts Council.
