dc3 Art Projects is proud to present Canadian artist Amalie Atkins’ video installation Three Minute Miracle at Moving Image New York. Three Minute Miracle is Atkins' first major installation, which debuted at the survey show of contemporary Canadian art Oh, Canada at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA, USA in 2012, and subsequently travelled across Canada.
Amalie Atkins is a multidisciplinary artist who lives who creates cinematic fables through a blend of film, textiles, installations, performance, and photography. Offering a glimpse of prairie upbringing, a love of storytelling, and an affection for whimsy and darkness together, Three Minute Miracle embodies the distinctive hand-made craft aesthetic of Atkins’ work. Slipping on felt boots and entering the white tent, the viewer becomes a participant in Atkins’ dreamlike narrative as she guides us into her world, through her contemporary fable where a girl with a giant cake goes to a place where all teeth ache.
