Amalie Atkins Book

No stock available


This catalogue, the first to focus on Amalie Atkins' work, features more than fifty colour illustrations of her films, photographs, and installations  as well as insightful essays by the award-winning poet Sylvia Legris, Timothy Long (MacKenzie Art Gallery), and Grace Kehler (McMaster University). A special feature of the book is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the artist’s studio-garage where Atkins’ visions come to life. Together they create a conversation around gift-giving, craft, DIY aesthetics, and the wish for places of belonging in a mobile world.

Set against the luminous landscapes of southern and central Saskatchewan, Atkins’ multi-layered narratives present bittersweet sagas of grief, joy, and transformation that linger in the memory like half-remembered fairy tales. Characters in the guise of wolves, bears, crows or other creatures populate her imaginative worlds and engage with human protagonists - two-headed sisters, braid harvesters, a troupe of roller-skating Valkyries - enacting scenarios that are both everyday and otherworldly.

The catalogue is published by the MacKenzie Art Gallery and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, in collaboration with the Kenderdine Art Gallery | College Art Galleries, and Open Space (Victoria).
