Fergus Byrne – ‘Coming out for air’
Fergus Byrne, in ‘Coming out for air’ will make a performance incorporating psycho-geography and bodily-centered elements of explorations, within Cathedral Quarter.
‘Coming out for air’ is an open invitation to look for the poetic and alternative ways of looking at our way of inhabiting the city.
Psychogeography is a term that has stemmed from a time when artists were seen as Flaneurs (wanderers mainly in Paris), for their attempts to ‘re-conquest’ the public space in early capitalistic societies via the subversion of its purpose-based movements.
Psychogeography was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord and has its historical roots in post WWII France. Guy Debord described it as
“the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.”
