  • Description

    'Lover' evokes an absent body with elegant simplicity. Alicia Frankovich’s works manoeuvre between the boundaries that separate our bodies and the objects that we live with. 'Lover' is a representation of a body, a glowing outline of the
    space it would occupy, but it also suggests a tool or garment. Performance and sculpture co-exist in Frankovich’s practice. During performances the artist’s body often seems object-like, encumbered by gravity; while the objects she makes are like clothing or equipment, they retain the suggestion of activity.
