Amalie Atkins

The Diamond Eye Assembly

Remai Modern debuts Amalie Atkin’s recent project, a series of three films that explore ancestral connectivity and the retrieval of distant memories. Shot on 16-mm film and set in the rural community of Petrofka in the North Saskatchewan River Valley, Atkin’s fictional world comes alive through lyrical music and haunting narratives. A cast of female characters animate the landscape, a site of trauma and resilience, communicating with each other across time and connecting past to present.


Remai Modern’s presentation of Amalie Atkins and The Diamond Eye Assembly is made possible through the generous support of TD.
