Performance: Floor Resistance by Alicia Frankovich

25 June 2011 / 8pm / HAU 3 (Tempelhofer Ufer 10, 10963 Berlin)

Alicia Frankovich is a recipient of the Creative New Zealand Scholarship at the International Atelier Programme of the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, which is currently presenting her solo exhibition “Gestures, Splits and Annulations” with videos, films and kinetic sculptures.

At the same time, Frankovich is showing her stage performance “Floor Resistance”. By means of choreographed and improvised movements she comes forth with body-space-relations. The focus is on sculptural forms that take on traits of character as we can observe them in humans and in animals. A horizontal orchestra and a horde of ‘bisons’ populate the stage. Among other topics, “Floor Resistance” questions conventional opinions about sports, against the background of the artist’s failed attempts as a gymnast when she was a child.

This project is support by the New Zealand Embassy in Berlin.
