Artist’s Statement
MART Gallery
Fergus Byrne is a multidisciplinary artist working in performance, sculpture, drawing, writing and
event curation. He is based in Dublin, Ireland. Underpinning all the performance work is a visual art
practice in which the observation of the figure is fundamental. He tests the materiality of his body in
performances derived from various physical disciplines – wrestling, martial arts and dance.
‘I am concerned with performance having a meaningful relation to its location and audience,
acknowledgement of the live nature of performance and being open to change occurring within a
performance despite structures set in the creation of work. I am looking at the space in MART gallery
and considering how I can bring myself to this space and incorporate it into ongoing performance
interests often involving sculptural engagement with the architecture of a space’.
