Documentation of Franko B’s seminal performance at the ICA in May 1996. I’m Not Your Babe is a provocative and stark portrait of the existential self, in which Franko B uses his own drawn blood as a symbol of carnal reality and suggests the natural destitution of the body as a fundamental of existence. Standing before us as a mute body-object, achromatic and cadaverous, his performance is an act of cleansing, stripping the flesh of identity.
