Francis Gomila’s multi-media installations 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 “In my view the digital revolution perfectly illustrates Duchamp’s 'infra-thin' (the space between two sides of a single sheet of paper) enabling a permeable boundary through which the digital image becomes sculptural in its own right”
In Gomila’s work 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.
His works have been widely exhibited internationally including Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris PRAGUE BIENNAL Veletrzni Palace Museum Prague Artists Space New York.
