FIL ROUGE - exhibition by Franko B, 18 Feb-7 Apr.
Nonostantemarras Via Cola di Rienzo 8, 20144 Milan, Italy

This exhibition, entitled Fil Rouge, displays the works by the Milanese, London-based performance artist Franko B, important figure of reference for the body art of the 1990s. His intertwined cotton strings tell of war, the drama of soldiers and the loss of affection that accompany every armed conflict. Red and gold, the dominant colours of his canvases, emerge on the white surfaces. His work was originally based on blood and the rituals of the bodies’ violations. At the end of the 1990s his research moved towards a more multi-disciplinary inclination, such as video, sculpture, photography, painting and installation.
