Context plays a vital part in Alicia Framis’s work. The environment influences the work of art, in the same way the work of art influences its environment. There is a reason why its masters and sources of inspiration are conceptual artists such as Daniel Buren and Dan Graham. The high space of the Rabo Art Zone inspired Alicia to create a large departure board measuring 4×12 metres. This exhibition transports the visitor to fictitious or imaginary cities from the worlds of philosophy, literature, architecture and science fiction.
