Franko B, Because of Love volume 1


Franko B makes his debut at The Place with the new multi-disciplinary performance solo, Because of Love volume 1. Drawing upon memories of vivid moments and experiences of art, film and dance from different stages in his life, this piece is about childhood, humanity, inhumanity, love and grief. Central to the work is the idea of the sentimentality of memory — the emotional charge and romanticism often applied to our experience of remembering culture. Experiences can be mediated by someone else's voice or appropriated in a way which is both personal and political. Franko B was born in Milan and has lived in London since 1979. He has exhibited and performed widely, including at Tate Modern, the ICA, South London Gallery and Beaconsfield, and has presented work internationally. There will be a post-show discussion between the artist and Gilles Jobin.
