Alicia Frankovich

Apr 2012 to Jul 2012
1980 lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Alicia Frankovichs work exists out of sculptures, performances, performance-based videos and short films. In her work she puts bodies into situations where they play out relations, often testing social conventions and behaviours. Her work also extends to sculpture – both static and kinetic, to refer to the idea of performance though where the body is absent. Her works are based on gestures and small movements of video footage on Internet, feature films, but also movements made by objects and installations (for example Choreography I, 2011).
