This is the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. She will be present at the opening preview on Friday 5 February from 5.30 – 8pm.

Alicia Frankovich has exhibited widely in New Zealand and Internationally. She works at the intersection of performance and sculpture, where she builds successions of varying images, embodiments and movements.
