Félicia Atkinson
 
Félicia Atkinson (born 1981 in Paris, lives and works in Brussels) is graduated with Honors from l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and studied also anthropology and contemporary dance. She is a sound and visual artist, an experimental musician and the co-publisher of the independent imprint Shelter Press. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures and musical compositions are mostly abstract. Her work takes its sources from the American tradition of painting (Morris Louis, Cy Twombly, Richard Tuttle) and from avant-gardes figures who worked on chance and randomness (Fluxus, John Cage, La Monte Young...) as much as feminist figures in music and art.

Ricocheting quietly between photographic landscapes, drawn abstractions and poetic recollections, this artist's book 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, the book 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.

Atkinson's most ambitious musical work to date, Hand In Hand combines 80's sci-fi anxious aethetics with today's transparency of digital sounds. Placing the voice at the epicenter of the recording, the French artist and musician convokes fiction, composition and abstraction in the manner of Joan La Barbara, Robert Ashley, or Delia Derbyshire.
