Alicia Frankovich has long explored the equivalency between physical forms and the potential for new modes of imagining both human and non-human form and behaviour. The all-encompassing phenomenon of the body — its insides, outsides, material and immaterial ways— could be considered the underlying fascination of Frankovich’s work. A multi-dimensional practice at the intersection of sculpture, video, performance and installation, Frankovich’s work pits the design and impulses of our primal bodies against radical changes in technology, thought, society and the ecosystem. Her practice investigates how the physicality and behaviour of a body operates within social settings and constructs – including plays of dominance and re-negotiating the audience/performer relationship.
Frankovich lives and works in Melbourne; she has exhibited widely in museums and galleries internationally including: Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (2018); Dowse Museum, Lower Hutt (2018); KUB BIllboards, Kunsthaus Bregnez (2018); Le Case d’Arte, Milan (2018); Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore (2018); Le Case d’Arte, Milan (2018); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2017); Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland (2017); Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki (2017); Kunstverein fur die Rheinland und Westfalen, Dusseldorf (2017) and TarraWarra Museum of Art, Victoria (2016).
