Patrick Goddard is an artist and writer working in East London, graduating from a Masters at Goldsmiths in 2011. Recent works have taken the form of videos, books, performances and sculpture, all with an emphasis on observational anecdotes or research led articles, often utilising visual games or puns to offset sociological observances. 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. Recent and forthcoming shows include Revolver II, Matt’s Gallery, Solo Show, London, (2014); Operation Paperclip, Comic launch and performance at Matt’s Gallery, London, (2014); Open Film, Outpost Gallery, Norwich, (2013); Vanguard, the Jewish Museum, Salonica, (2013); Apocalipstick performance as part of the Art Licks Weekend, (2013); and Dear Serge, The De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill (2013).
Daniel Keller's wide-ranging output engages with issues at the intersection of economics, technology, culture and collaboration. His current focus of research is on notions of progress, technological disruption and the role of the post-studio 'prosumer imagineer' artist in the global networked economy. As Aids-3D, he has exhibited throughout Europe and the United States since 2006. In 2012 he became Director of Absolute Vitality Inc, a Wyoming based corporation that is used as a "special purpose vehicle", a corporate entity set up to manage ownership of itself and its parts. Along with Simon Denny, he is co-organizer of TEDxVaduz which was held at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein in December 2013. Recent solo exhibtions include eVita, Casa Maauad, Mexico City (2014); 63rd-77th steps, Bari, Italy (2014); Lazy Ocean Drift, New Galerie, Paris (2013); abc, art berlin contemporary, with Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Berlin (2013).
