Greig Burgoyne studied at Hoschüle Für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna & at the Royal College of Art, London ( MA Painting 1994).
Burgoyne engages in an expansive site-specific drawing practice that embraces performance and installation. He unites materials often sourced in and around the proximity each project takes place within, alongside process-led, rule-based strategies, proposing new dialogues that seek to generate a condition of becoming, translation and flux instead of stasis; a site of experience rather than merely location.
Recent commissions and performances include: The First Night of Experimental Boredom at Lodge 222 Dordrecht, Holland, 2019; The One Who Was Standing Apart From Me at Mart Gallery, Dublin 2018; Celui Qui Ne M'Accompagnait Pas, at Médiatèque Du Moulle, France 2018; Yellow Brick Road 1 & 2 for P/ROPS Nest Space, Ghent, Belgium 2018; PIER DIG at ARTWalk Porty, Edinburgh 2018; Restless Linings at Wimbledon Space London 2018; OK-NO at La Confection Idéale, Tourcoing, France 2018, and Breathing Space with La Verita Dance Company at Centre Culturel, Balavoine, France.
Forthcoming projects in 2019 include Brief Encounters at the Edinburgh Arts Festival; and Expect the Unexpected at The Lowry Manchester (with Yoko Ono, Martin Creed and John Baldessari).
