Alicia Frankovich

Berlin and Australian based artist Alicia Frankovich’s practice explores the relationship between physical form and the imagining of human and non-human form and behaviour. In her early works, she was primarily interested with physical behaviour and impulses in social settings, testing these boundaries in multi-dimensional combinations of sculpture, video, performance and installation. Frankovich’s installation work Microchimerism (2018) in the Chartwell Collection, is a reflection on microscopic imagining the presence of the DNA of others in our own bodies: the phenomenon that gives the work its title. She explores her own female karyotype across the wall, questioning what identity and body mean for individuals and the autonomy of the ‘self’. Her work continues to test social convention and map human behaviour.

Alicia Frankovich was born in New Zealand in 1980 and obtained a Bachelor of Visual Arts in sculpture from AUT, and has undertaken residencies in Antwerp, Dublin and Melbourne. She has exhibited widely in New Zealand and internationally, and is the Australian Government Research Training Programme Scholar at the Australian National University (2010-2020).
