Patrick Goddard

Patrick Goddard creates video, publications, drawing, performance and installation. 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.

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. Goddard completed an MFA at Goldsmiths University in 2011 and recently completed a doctorate at Oxford University, in Fine Art practice.

Goddard was commissioned by Opening Times and the resulting film can be viewed at dirtydeedsdonecheap.otdac.org
