Greig Burgoyne


Burgoyne was born in Glasgow Scotland, studied at HAK Vienna & MA painting Royal college of Art London. He is Senior Lecturer BA MA Fine Art at University for the Creative Arts Farnham UK. He engages in a broad based site- specific drawing practice that embraces film, live performance and wall drawing; Lectures in fine art & critical theory across Europe, 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.
