Profile greig 20burgoyne


Artist/Curator/Academic, Freelance in Hastings United Kingdom

Artist, Curator, Lecturer & Researcher RCA who draws a lot, doesn't like Elgar, but is very impressed by chipboard & empty car parks.
Burgoyne was born in Glasgow Scotland, studied at HAK Vienna & MA painting Royal college of Art London.
He engages in a broad based site- specific drawing practice that embraces film, live performance and wall drawing; Lectures in fine art & critical theory in France, Belgium, Canada & Russia; Curates exhibitions & Presents at Conference.
Burgoyne unites office materials ranging from post-it notes to highlighter pens and photocopy paper alongside process led, rule based repetition, endurance, accumulation and duration.
Taking anomalies of the space, he seeks to test or expand alternative body/site relations with regard to space and thinking.
The results are immersive, be they absurd or beguiling taking the form of site-specific wall drawings, films, performances and installations.
Burgoyne proposes new dialogues and frameworks that seek to generate a condition of becoming, translation and flux instead of stasis; a site of experience rather than merely location.

Drawing space

@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

Grieg Burgoyne suggests that we are all 'a bundle of rhythms' and, through his exploratory, playful and site-specific drawing practice invites us to reunite with lost spaces, the periphery, the other, the elsewhere.
