  • Frank questions the condition and function of the spaces in which we live. Entering into the anthropological and socio-political context of the public and the private makes her work time and site related, which enable a radical response to the way we are made to live. Her works are rooted in the vernacular; the audience receives the opportunity to gain access to the private social interactions that occur in the public domain. Most pertinently the process of agreement and disagreement towards the forming of a shared space is addressed. 

    Frank operates as an attendant utilising a range of techniques and materials to address this unease – found or made objects are introduced and transformed. Her works are expressed through multidisciplinary media and are motivated by her concern for a lack of intervention into these spatio-temporal conditions of the way we live.

    Although the works are made and produced in the public realm, the conceptual ideology and minimalist 'volume' are crucial. The documentation of the work doesn’t assume the convention trope of documentation but reconfigures the outcomes in relation to time and space.
