Brian Connolly, Northern Ireland

 Born in 1961, living and working in Belfast

is a multi-media artist who's works often relate to ‘place' or context. He employs a wide range of artistic processes, including Performance, Public Sculpture, Installation Art, and collaborative projects.

He currently employs two distinct Performance strategies: The first is geared to entice a non ‘art' audience and takes the form of Market Stall intervention. Surreal humor is employed to question aspects of consumerism and global political and social ethics.

His other live works are often both place-specific & durational. These Performance works, generically entitled "Install-actions", are often visually elaborate and contain both political and spiritual metaphors.
