Summer 2010 - Félicia Atkinson
Félicia Atkinson is travelling coast to coast across the U.S. for four months with a fellowship from the French program Villa Medicis Hors Les Murs, collecting sounds, images and thoughts during her trip. So far she has been in Chicago, where she performed at the Museum of Contmeporary Art, Brooklyn and Gallatin. Félicia is working on two commissions: a sound piece for French public radio and a video for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Montreal. Further travels will take her to performances in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles.
Félicia’s work is inspired by two ways of thinking: the Japanese wabi-sabi philosophy of the unfinished, and the lo-fi and psychedelic improvisations in music and drawing. Imperfections, improvisation, repetition, raw materials, folk culture, minimal art, travel, translation, contemplation, are the materials of her body of work which includes performance, writing, music, drawing, and photography.
