MOVING IMAGE NEW YORK 2016
March 3 – 6, 2016
THREE MINUTE MIRACLE
Moving Image will return to the Waterfront New York Tunnel, March 3-6, 2016, coinciding with The Armory Show and INDEPENDENT in New York. Moving Image was conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms.
Participation is by invitation only by the Moving Image Curatorial Advisory Committee who has invited a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions to present single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations.
This is the first year that Canadian galleries have been invited to participate in Moving Image, and we are excited to be representing Canada, alongside Joyce Yahouda Gallery from Montreal, QC, who will be presenting the work of Perry Bard.
Three Minute Miracle is Amalie Atkins’ first major installation, which debuted at the survey show of contemporary Canadian art, Oh, Canada, at MASS MoCA in 2012, and subsequently toured across Canada. Three Minute Miracle was also chosen as a Feature Project at Art Toronto 2014.
Amalie Atkins is a multidisciplinary artist who creates cinematic fables through a blend of film, textiles, installations, performance, and photography. Offering a glimpse of prairie upbringing, a love of storytelling, and an affection for both whimsy and darkness, Three Minute Miracle embodies the distinctive hand-made craft aesthetic of Atkins’ work. Slipping on felt boots and entering the white tent, the viewer becomes a participant in Atkins’ dreamlike narrative as she guides us into her world – a contemporary fable where a girl with a giant cake goes to a place where all teeth ache.
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.
dc3 Art Projects will also be showing Three Minute Miracle in our Edmonton gallery space March 10 – April 16, 2016.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
