Franca B is an artist of manic diversity who has dedicated a significant chunk of her career to making work as part of the small but culturally rich town of Alice Springs. As much as her imagination has been fed by the hot, complex, maverick filled wonderland, she has become a designer of the collective imagination of the place. Her work retains a characteristic of unfettered oddness, as she is delighted by both local detail and international mythology alike and finds ways to draw the two together with unpredictable results.

‘I like to polarize the ordinary to find theatrical and comical insight. I am particularly interested in concepts and ideas that allow participants and onlookers the freedom to discover and create in the moment.’

Artistic Mediums: Photography, sculpture, installation, performative art, live arts, relational art, theatre, dance.
