Twins & Lovers
Saturday, March 25, 2017
Twins & Lovers is a new performance by Alicia Frankovich that explores the idea of doubling and multiplicity as ways to address relationships, embodiments and potentials for change for individuals within groups. All doublings contain and foreground differences, here these dialogues and relations are produced and dissolve. We are always situated in relation to one another. Frankovich draws languages and images from within artworks in her exhibition OUTSIDE BEFORE BEYOND and surrounding research, that here manifest through social gathering and choreography, a shared or inter-related principal of organizing offering scope for collective gathering and transformation.
This live encounter engages in the temporal exhibition experience the artist presents in OUTSIDE BEFORE BEYOND, adding the materiality of live bodies to the situation.
In this performance the performers’ movements and relations to each other echo the choreographies, forms and visual rhythms of the other components of the exhibition, drawing out the doublings and resonances that are rife in the imagery and objects. It is in these doublings, of images, twins, and lovers that the difference and inter-connections among the bodies and forms are entangled and celebrated.
The event accompanies the exhibition Alicia Frankovich – OUTSIDE BEFORE BEYOND, on view at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf through April 9, 2017.
