Currently on view at KIRK Gallery in Denmark is artist Ian Francis’s exceptional solo exhibition, “Ancient Rites & Rituals, Begun Again.”
“In this show,“ Ian explains, “I wanted to explore the dissonance of returning to regular patterns of life after the forced hiatus of the recent lockdowns and pandemic. I’ve always been interested in the strangeness of the moment of history we’re living through.
There are so many things that I take for granted and give little thought to despite them being unique to our current time. Despite the relative brevity of the lockdowns, returning to that world after spending time away from it can seem jarring, the customary patterns of the pre-pandemic world strange and unnerving.
I’m not interested in depicting quarantines or COVID, but I am interested in the perspective the time period gives to our everyday lives, the isolation, detachment and uncertainty of the now.”
