In failing to recognize limitation as a terrain for fertile enquiries, my ancestors came to favour exploitation as a way to ascend. My research field is that limitation. I work within my fears, anger, guilt, and desperation to make sense of our present multifaceted crisis. Via craftsmanship, patience, and care, I engage with processes of transformation. I delve into new media forms, critical material practices, textiles, and literature, ultimately creating multimedia installations. I make art as a way of resisting desperation, hoping we can find shelter under a silky piece of the fabric of time. I want to weave that shroud to calmly and methodically sheath the remains of our eternal human and non-human endangered bodies. My work is an ode to the horrific and grandiose wonders we will come in contact with, tomorrow, now, yesterday, and above.
Amélie makes art as one would enter a process of transformative grief. Her work is an ode to the wonders we have lost/are losing in the course of the capitalocene-anthropocene and beyond.
