Amalie Atkins: where the hour floats
Saturday, March 2, 3-5pm
Tour with the artist at 2:30pm
exhibition dates: March 2-April 21, 2019
Enter the world that Amalie Atkins built. Set just beyond the veil of reality, a familiar prairie landscape transforms into a cinematic fable. In Atkins’s marvelous realm, an all-female cast embarks on an epic journey told through the ongoing project we live on the edge of disaster and imagine we are in a musical (2010–). The artist tenderly choreographs individual chapters, weaving these stories in a circuitous, continuous plot. In its telling, Atkins knits together autobiography with cultural history, fantasy with reality, and the conceptual with the emotional. The exhibition where the hour floats at the Art Gallery at Evergreen presents a selection of short films and large-format photographs from this larger series. Amalie Atkins is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Saskatoon. She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally.
where the hour floats is part of the 2019 Capture Photography Festival Selected Exhibition Program and is Atkins’s first exhibition in the Metro Vancouver area.
