Torin Francis is a Brisbane based artist originally from London. His practice considers the devices we use to quantify, navigate, and comprehend the way in which the passing of time is perceived and experienced. This engagement with these mechanisms is explored through poetic relationships between objects and space in site-responsive installations, kinetic sculpture, assemblage, and moving image works. Francis re-evaluates and re-contextualises objects in both outdoor and indoor spaces. Natural phenomena, such as wind, weather and the environment, are used to harness outcomes, and material remnants from previous work are used in assemblages within the gallery space.
Torin graduated from the Queensland University of Technology in 2017 with First Class Honours. He recently has exhibited at BLINDSIDE Gallery, Melbourne (2019), Milani Gallery, Carpark, Brisbane and Metro Arts (2019).
