J. Fergus Evans deftly weaves poetry, theatre, and installation into tapestries saturated with lived experience and half-imagined fantastical landscapes. Previous work has included (among other things) a forest created from over a thousand donated sympathy cards and an hour-long solo show designed to take place in broom cupboards and boiler rooms. He has created work with a number of leading arts organisations including Contact Theatre, Apples and Snakes, and Battersea Arts Centre. Fergus is an Associate Artist with The Albany and is supported by The Lowry and New Writing South. His debut collection ‘On Euclid Ave’ is available from Flapjack Press.
