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. Hung sequentially, the installation is the largest-ever presentation of this body of Kiff's work and reveals the evolution of Kiff’s ideas. 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.
