NEEDS Life Performance by Fergus Cronin
16th May at 6pm
Launch of exhibition and Life Performance by Fergus Cronin
Fergus Cronin, is a performance artist, who uses his body as a platform, with a tendency towards making a public show of himself; his street interventions are simple and powerful and mostly involve holding A4 signs in public spaces. The signs, such as 'I need attention' and 'I need touch', express a vulnerability he chooses to reveal on that day, to communicate ideas and get people to ask questions of him and about themselves. His work seeks to explore the nature and connecting qualities of basic human needs.
