Francis Thorburn (b. 1985 in Wolverhampton, UK) lives and works in London, UK.
Thorburn is currently working with performance and sculpture. Since 2008 he has been developing a series of processional performances, which use sculptural devices to head the procession. He wishes to fascinate and capture the audiences’ attention with the absurd and the extravagant, through ritualized action and the epic machine.
His performance work has been commissioned by Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the Centre for Contemporary Art Warsaw (Poland) and the Folkestone Triennial. He has exhibited across the UK with recent shows at the Olympic Park, Focal Point Gallery, The Grundy Gallery, The New Art Gallery, Generator Projects, and Embassy Gallery. Thorburn has also shown internationally in Australia, Korea, Portugal and Poland.
