Ken Kiff: The Sequence at Sainsbury Centre

In the first museum exhibition of Ken Kiff for almost 25 years, the Sainsbury Centre’s exhibition has brought together 60 of Kiff’s The Sequence paintings, in the largest-ever presentation of works from across the series. Hung sequentially, the installation will reveal the evolution of Kiff’s ideas from their tentative beginnings to the expansion of key themes as the series progressed.

The Sequence series explores collisions of fantasy with everyday, lived experience. Kiff drew from a wide variety of sources in order to bring what might be called a form of ‘poetic primitivism’ to the work. The paintings’ motifs referenced stories from the myths and folktales of many different cultures and he used his own experience of psychoanalysis to explore multiple facets of the human psyche.
