Sculpture, in Alicia Frankovich's work, is a function of performance, the gesture of extending or otherwise toying with a found object, which is then 'performed on' and left as a sort of carcass in the aftermath of the event.

Overview 


Sculpture, in Alicia Frankovich's work, is a function of performance, the gesture of extending or otherwise toying with a found object, which is then 'performed on' and left as a sort of carcass in the aftermath of the event. Her recurrent themes of height, precariousness, and formal and temporal cycles draw on exemplary forms of human movement such as gymnastics and racing, evoking the thin line between rigorous poise and physical injury, discipline and collapse, while deploying a catalogue of references to art history, systems of power, and questions of geography, terrain and everyday life.

 

For her Artspace project, Frankovich configured new and recent work through a range of exhibition forms, including kinetic sculpture, installation, live performance and documentation of varying quality, structured across modes of presentation and reading both conventional and outmoded.
