Ella de Búrca is a visual artist. Her installations are conceived for specific occasions, disappearing after they are exhibited. Her bold, large-scale sculptures could be mistaken for theatre sets, as she uses performance and the object to examine notions of hegemonic masculinity in Irish literature and culture.
Recent selected exhibitions include IMMA Rising, June 2015, Otherwise, WYSPA Gdansk, July 2014, and The Emergency Pavilion at The 53rd Venice Biennale, 2013. Awards include The Evelyn Wood Scholarship for The Banff Centre, 2011, Fingal County Council Bursary 2015 and Culture Ireland 2013. Residencies include The Banff Centre, 2011, AIR Antwerpen 2012 and The HISK, Belgium, 2016 to 2017. De Búrca holds an MFA from NCAD (2011) and a BA (Hons) from IADT (2009).
