Emilie Atkinson is a recent graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art, currently based in London. Her practice explores the place of black humour and satire in providing efficacious representations of weighty topics such as sex and death. She reflects upon cultural labeling that leads to misconceptions. Combining multiple viewpoints she highlights the absurdity of our stereotyping. Through simple maniputations of both ‘things’ and images, truer versions of objects emerge and myth is revealed. These concerns are approached through film, photography and object making.
