Oh Lover Boy


Franko B has achieved international acclaim with his performances involving cutting and bleeding, ritualising the pain inflicted on his body. But throughout his career Franko has also made sculptures and collages, which relate to his performances in their exploration of martyrdom, pleasure and sexuality. Oh Lover Boy looks at Franko's work from the ‘nineties onwards, and considers his objects alongside the more well-known performances. The book contains text by Sarah Wilson and an interview between the artist and Gray Watson.
