Patrick Goddard

Patrick Goddard primarily creates video, sculpture and installation as well as working with photography, painting and drawing. His politically loaded and narrative based works undermine themselves with a self-defeating black comedy as they chart the artist’s fumbled attempts to create a personal and political integrity. Works focus on a range of topics: from ecology, the Anthropocene and the animal; to race politics, gentrification, and urbanization. 

Goddard’s recent solo exhibitions include ‘Pedigree’, Seventeen, 2022; ‘Die Biester’, E-Werk, Freiburg, 2021; ‘Trip to Eclipse’, Matt’s Gallery, London 2020;  ‘Go Professional’, Seventeen, 2017; ‘Looking for the Ocean Estate’ Almanac Projects, London, 2016, ‘Gone To Croatan’ at Outpost Gallery, Norwich, 2015; ‘Revolver II’ at Matt’s Gallery, London, 2014. He is also featured in the UK touring exhibition, British Art Show 9, 2021-22 and released a book of photography with the Basel based publishers Speres Projects in 2022. Goddard completed an MFA at Goldsmiths University in 2011 and a doctorate at Oxford University in 2018.

Goddard presented a solo exhibit at the inaugural Paris+ par Art Basel this October centred around a new film titled Whoopsie’s Dream.
