SOUND SERIES: STICK AND STONE
2 – 19 August 2017
Curated by Anabelle Lacroix
Opening Performance by Félicia Atkinson | Thursday 3 August, 6.30 - 7pm
Félicia Atkinson (FR)
An exhibition by Félicia Atkinson is a particular event, a window in which the artist’s writing, music, sound composition and visual essays come into an alignment to our eyes and ears.
It’s an antiphony. Each part answers or echo another. It’s a mise-en-phrase. It’s audio-visual language staged and timed. But stretched.
For this first exhibition in Australia, Félicia Atkinson will create new works and a new chapter of a novel started in 2015 A Forest, Petrifies. The artist will continue her exploration of forests and deserts with processes of decomposition, trace making and muffling and present specific forms for infinite variations.
Félicia Atkinson was born in Paris in 1981 and lives in Rennes, France. She works in painting, drawing, sculpture, text, noise, landscape, abstraction and poetry inspired by her travels. Atkinson also creates electronic music and co-publishes the independent imprint Shelter Press/curatorial platform Argument with Bartolomé Sanson. She has exhibited her work widely in group show and solo shows across Europe, Mexico, and the United States. She attended l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
BLINDSIDE Sound Series 2017 is a Liquid Architecture project supported by Institut Français and Bundanon Trust.
