Hickster Projects

Greig Burgoyne

B. 1971 Glasgow
Lives and works between Hastings and Poitiers

He engages in a broad-based site- specific drawing practice that embraces film, live performance, and installation. Burgoyne unites materials often sourced in and around the proximity of the site each project takes place within, alongside process-led, rule-based strategies. Theoretical frameworks specific to phenomenology, literary structures around the fragment, and dilemmas about space found in modern Russian fiction inform the work.

Solo projects in 2021/22 included: Museo dell’Arte Classica Rome; Kunsthallen Bochum, Germany; PS2 Belfast; Whitstable Biennale; Spazio Mensa Rome; Civitella Ranieri Foundation, Perugia; Verein Für Aktuelle Kunst Rührgebiet Oberhausen (VAKR); Le Confection Idéal France; Edinburgh Arts festival. His work features as chapter 4 of ‘Performance drawing-new practices’ published by Bloomsbury Books in 2021. Forthcoming exhibitions in 2023 include The Lowry Manchester (solo); MLAC Rome (solo)
