The performative body is foremost in Alicia Frankovich's work, often presented in a state of restraint, which simultaneously suggests the potential for release. Bodies are suspended, controlled, sometimes propelled from great heights; while an interest in provisionality sees her use simple materials to achieve complex mechanisms. The resulting debris form sculptural objects that, whilst depleted of their original function, still suggest the velocity of the action they have been subjected to.

Formerly a National level gymnast, the possibility of striving for the achievement of perfection is dichotomized by its counterpoint, failure. Frankovich's performances evoke the aggressive discipline and spectacle of the sports event, and the competitive urge which sees an athlete force their body to the limit of physical or emotional endurance. Frankovich might pare back the execution of her work but the events are densely layered with other references--the history of stamina in performance art, but also the calculated movement of theatre and dance, and the physical occupation of architectural space.

ExhibitionsTitle: Talk: Chris Braddock on Alicia Frankovich's Performative Sculptures
Date: Tuesday, 9 June 2009
Start time: 6:00 pm
Contact Person: Media Artspace


Chris Braddock will give a 40 minute seminar presentation on Alicia Frankovich's recent performance and installation practice. The seminar explores Frankovich's body as a kind of lame part object, the momentary duration of its appearance, and the possibilities of failure or misperformance in her practice. Her works such as 'To Veer: A Sudden Change Of Opinion, Subject Or Type Of Behaviour' (2007) and 'Flying Fox' (2008) are explored in the context of the current installation at ARTSPACE, Auckland and Frankovich's forthcoming project for Performance Studies International in Zagreb curated by Chris Braddock.
