Brian Connolly

Brian Connolly is a multi-media artist whose works often relate to ‘place’ or context. He employs a wide range of artistic processes, including performance art, public sculpture, installation art, and collaborative projects. Within one of his Performance Art strategies he entices a ‘non-art’ audience within a Market Stall intervention. His other live works are often place-specific & durational. These performance works, generically entitled “Install-actions,” are often visually elaborate and contain both political and spiritual metaphors. He has made both solo and group performances, and exhibited in diverse contexts throughout Europe, Canada, China, and Mexico. He has also initiated and curated a number of events and projects, both nationally and internationally, and has been involved with a variety of artist-run organizations throughout Ireland including: The Sculptors Society of Ireland, Visual Artists Ireland, Bbeyond, Flaxart, and Moyle Art in Public Places, among others. He is currently an Associate Lecturer in Sculpture, Fine Art at the University of Ulster in Belfast, and was instrumental in gaining major funding for the Interface Research Centre, now the Research Institute of Art & Design, within the Belfast School of Art.
