WE ARE HOUSED (in and around all of this stuff)
Opening: Tuesday 23 August 2005, 5.30pm
In Alicia Frankovich’s Volume installation, the artist engages in a performative act of shaping the environment. She moves around the space responding directly to the physical and social aspects of the gallery in order to both question and engage the experience of viewing. Her work is characterised by an interest in the physical affects of objects and spaces on people, and through this she challenges our expectations through a careful arranging.
