Francis Gomila

During the 90’s Gomila’s multi-media installations explored the deployment of new media with an emphasis on video as a sculptural form in its own right. Over this period, the electronic image has become the central medium in his artworks, developing from installations to single channel pieces.

His video works generate a psychological tension between the artwork and the spectator in exploring the levels of conflict between the image, the social context and the architectural environment in which it is placed / displaced and exhibited. Sculptural volume, sound and time are deployed as mechanisms to explore ‘vicious cycles’ operating within social and geopolitical systems, revealing Sisyphean patterns both real and imagined within our social fabric.

In the Last ten years his works have been widely exhibited internationally including; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. PRAGUE BIENNAL 1. Veletrzni Palace Museum, Prague. Artists Space New York. XI GRANCIA Sienna, Italy. Expoarte Mexico. Smart Project Space, Amsterdam. Franklin Art Works Minneapolis USA. NGBK Berlin. Museum of Contemporary Art Marseille. Kunstlerwerkstatt, Munich. FACT Liverpool. ICA London. Madrid Abierto 07.

Francis Gomila currently lives and works in Newcastle, England UK
