Because of Love

Scope and Content

Publicity, technical, administrative, photographic and audiovisual material for performances of Because of Love in the UK and Germany.

Because of Love was developed in dialogue with Gilles Jobin and Tim Etchells. It featured music by Othon, light design by Nigel Edwards, singing by Mitch Miller and animation by Thomas Qualmann.

"The piece represents a major departure in Franko’s practice, moving away from the gallery based tableaux vivants of his previous work. Drawing upon memories of vivid moments and experiences of art, film and dance from different stages in his life, this piece is about life, childhood, humanity, inhumanity, love and grief. Intimate connections are made between personal memories and lived experiences... experiences that can be mediated by someone else’s voice or art form, or appropriated to become one’s own in a way which is both personal and political."
