The Hellish Cycle Complete (11’00” / 2016)
The Hellish Cycle Complete was one of three works completed by Patrick Goddard at Blackrock 2016, the artist residency program in Gloucestershire run by Matt’s Gallery and the Lydney Park Estate.
A guard/feral/rescue dog dashes around the forgotten architecture of an industrial past. A poetic monologue delivers a brief run down of post-Fordist Britain, Brexit psychologies and ending with a kind of post-anarchist anti-manifesto. Notes to self puncture the pomposity of the primary narrator.
Join us on Thursday 4th May, 5.30pm for a conversation between Patrick Goddard and Katie Davies, course leader of Fine Art at University of Gloucestershire, to launch the exhibition of The Hellish Cycle Complete.
