Franko B, painting

28th January to 27th February 2000

This first exhibition of Franko B 's paintings follows a recent show of sculptures and objects at Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck (W&LT) and performances in Antwerp and at the South London Gallery

Franko B. is an internationally acclaimed visual and performance artist whose practices focus on his raw, exposed and bleeding body.

His work reduces the body to its most carnal, existential and essential state, confronting us with the essence of the human condition in an objectified, stark, vulnerable and seductive powerful form.

Working with the mediums of performance, installation, photography, video and, for the first time, painting, his concern is to make the unbearable bearable and to provoke us to reconsider our understanding of beauty.

Franko B is reviewed in the February 2000 issue of Sleazenation and the April 2000 issue of Flux Magazine.
