Fergus Byrne is a multidisciplinary artist working in performance, sculpture and drawing and event curation. Underlying much of the performance work is the practice of life modelling. Having previously worked as life model he now tutors in life drawing. In performance he tests the materiality of his body and frequently combines such action with spoken word.
He is a member of the Visual Arts Centre in Dublin, Ireland. He holds a BA in Fine Art from NCAD and an MA in Theatre and Contemporary Practice from Hull University. His practice has been funded by The Arts Council of Ireland.
