Eoghan Ryan

Eoghan Ryan’s work incorporates performance, video and installation, exploring issues around new modes of institutional critique, as well as the bodily and abject. His work has been described as an investigation into the “empirical collapse within the more fluid collective bodies/structures that we occupy.”
