Amalie Atkins Bio

Amalie Atkins is a multidisciplinary artist who creates cinematic fables through a blend of film, textiles, installations, performance, and photography. Her work offers a glimpse of prairie upbringing, a love of storytelling, and an affection for both whimsy and darkness, with a distinctive hand-made craft aesthetic.

Amalie Atkins’ recent solo exhibition and accompanying catalogue, we live on the edge of disaster and imagine we are in a musical, was co-organized by the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, SK) and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge, AB), and she was commissioned by Remai Modern to create The Little Black Egg Listening Hut for Guy Maddin’s mixtape at Nuit Blanche Saskatoon 2015.

Amalie Atkins was born in Winnipeg, MB, Canada in 1975. She completed her BFA from the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary, AB in 2001. She currently lives and works in Saskatoon, SK, Canada.
