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’.
