amala is pleased to present "ambient garden", a solo exhibition by Félicia Atkinson.
Ricocheting quietly between photographic landscapes, drawn abstractions and poetic recollections, the collages printed on aluminium Ambient Gardens assumes the form of a deferred performance. Serving as a kind of response to the French artist and experimental musician’s recent sonic and visual output, those images comprises a series of film stills shot during her travels to New Mexico and Arizona, overlaid with a collection of at once crude and delicate drawings made in Australia. A series of short meditative films will be shown in dialogue with the silent images.
