LOST ASTRONAUT (New York, 2009)
PERFORMANCE AND INSTALLATION
BASE CAMP LOST ASTRONAUT IN LAB APF
Once again pushing the limits of her public profile, Framis decided to live in New York for a month as an astronaut, in the work Lost Astronaut. Wearing a 1970s space suit from the former Soviet Union she carried out these actions using scripts written previously for characters she invited from the New York scene. In this future time, suspended by the interdisciplinary character of her work, Alicia Framis criticized the previous image of what would happen in the future, these preconceptions of the life to come which were based on 1950s science fiction concepts.
