Franko B by Dominic Johnson
Book DescriptionBlinded by Love covers 15 years of work by Franko B, a body-art performer whose portfolio includes video, photography, performance, painting, installation, sculpture and mixed media. Frankio B is perhaps most famous for performances in which he bleeds, a line of work he has recently decided to discontinue as he turns to painting and sculpture. Blinded by Love surveys his career at that crucial turning point, from his first paintings and objets trouves to performances in which his own flesh becomes the canvas. Essayists here include Ron Athey, the visual/body artist and journalist; Vaginal Davis, queer icon and proclaimed "cultural antagonist"; and curators and professors from the U.S., the UK and Italy. Franko B was born in Milan in 1960 and has lived in London since 1979. He has performed at Tate Modern and at similar venues in Milan, Amsterdam, Madrid and Vienna, among other cities. He lectures widely and has spoken at schools including New York University and St. Martin's School of Art. His recent projects include a mentoring scheme for young artists, at www.franko-bmentoring.co.uk.

Pleading in the Blood, Paperback (January 2015)» View all books by Dominic Johnson
Ron Athey is an iconic figure in the development of contemporary art and performance. Pleading in the Blood foregrounds the prescience of Athey's work, this book explores how his visceral practice foresaw and precipitated the central place afforded sexuality, identity, and the body in art and critical theory in the late twentieth century.
