The methodical arrangements and uncomfortably close whispers of the experimental French musician, poet, and visual artist bring us further inside her surreal world.
Félicia Atkinson (Paris, b. 1981) is a french composer and visual artist, currently living in Rennes, France. After graduating from the French art school Les Beaux Arts de Paris, a city where she started to make art and music under her own name, she moved to Brussels in 2009, developing a wide visual body of work mainly focusing on sculpture and painting. It’s also there that she began to record music under the moniker Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier.
Nature and contemplation playing a central role in her creative process, she relocates in 2013 in the French Alps where she records at home her highly acclaimed album A Readymade Ceremony and the material for her collaborative album with NY-based musician Jefre Cantu-Ledesma Comme Un Seul Narcisse, both released on Shelter Press. Currently based on the French Atlantic west coast where she shares her time between her artistic carrier and musical practice, she composed Hand In Hand (Shelter Press, 2017), her most ambitious release to date. It’s in this new context that the problematics of sound installation, multichannel diffusion, and performance are starting to play a key role in her musical practice.
It’s also in 2016 – 2017 that Félicia Atkinson exhibited her visual work the most with various solo exhibitions and performances in galleries and contemporary art centers around the world. Félicia Atkinson co-runs Shelter Press with Bartolomé Sanson from its beginning in 2012.
