Miriam de Búrca engages with her own experience of the persisting divisions in Northern Ireland. Her drawings document the wildlife and plants inhabiting the grounds of Crom Estate, a former Anglo-Irish estate in Northern Ireland where she lived, and accentuate the transformation of a place with a fractious history and the conscious effort it takes to recall and understand its past and present.
De Búrca was born in Munich, Germany, in 1972 to a German mother and an Irish father and moved to the west of Ireland when she was three years old. Her drawings and experimental film and video-works have been exhibited internationally in London, New York, Montreal, Tel Aviv, Warsaw and Berlin. She studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art and the University of Ulster, and in 2010 completed a practice-based PhD at the University of Ulster, Belfast. She is based in Galway, Ireland.
