Amalie Atkins is a Saskatoon-based multidisciplinary artist whose work hop-scotches from filmmaking to fabric-based sculpture to performance. Her work is inspired by the repetitive tasks related to her textiles work, such as cutting and stitching, during which subconscious ideas emerge into stories and eventually story lines. Having studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design, Atkins currently lives and works in Saskatoon. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, the US, and in 2009 debuted in New York City and Berlin, Germany.

Artist Orange

Just as a performance artist uses their body as their medium, this is a fragrance composed entirely of the orange tree: fruit, leaves, bark, roots, and flowers. Artist Orange performs itself.
