Patrick Goddard
Goddard's recent works have taken the form of videos, books, performances and sculpture; all with an emphasis on observational anecdotes or research led articles. Without becoming politically illustrative, many works explore socio-politically loaded issues from conceptions of evil to class politics, sociology to anarchy, the uncanny to the absurd. Saturated with a sense of pathos, narratives undermine themselves with a self-defeating humour, playfully calling into question the sincerity or authority of the narrator, and the artist.

Goddard's debut graphic novel Operation Paperclip, 2014, was launched at Matt's Gallery as a Trailer to Revolver II.
