Internationally acclaimed artist Franko B returns to the SLG for a performance of 'Still Life'. Working across media encompassing sculpture, painting, installation and performance Franko B considers the nature of beauty and suffering combined, creating rarefied and striking encounters. Still Life considers the notion of 'still life' from a range of formal and conceptual perspectives: the 'still life' of fine art traditions; the 'still life' of the artist?s body as sculpture; the 'still life' of sleep and the 'still life' of a life that seems to go nowhere. The effect is both moving and profound. Franko B said of his work that it focuses on the visceral, where the body is a canvas and unmediated site for representation of the sacred, the beautiful, the untouchable, the unspeakable and for the pain, the love, the power and the fears of the human condition. Previous works, such as Aktion 398, performed at the SLG in 1999, have found reference in religious painting and radical performances by the Viennese Actionists such as Gunther Brus. Still Life continues these interests, yet also displays the artist's move towards a more poetic and meditive approach. Italian born and now living in London, Franko B has performed and exhibited extensively in the UK and internationally. Franko B is an Artsadmin associate artist. - from the SLG web site.
