Utilising correspondence with a variety of people Patrick Coyle has developed a series of live performances to take place over the course of one day at ANDOR. Alongside installations of new and old works by the artist as well as found objects, remnants of the performance will be presented in the gallery space for the duration of the exhibition. It said combines the artist’s performance based practice, script writing and studio based research to reconstruct conversations and the topics around which they revolve.

Booking is essential for the performances on the 13th March and places are limited. Please email to book.
