Private view: Visions Programme 1 led by Patrick Goddard

Thursday 6th October 2022 , 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us for the private view of this year’s Visions in the Nunnery presenting Programme 1 with lead artist Patrick Goddard and a live performance from Plastique Fantastique Communique, Flight of the Termite.
Whoopsie’s Model, Patrick Goddard

Our biennial celebration of international moving image Visions returns for its 13th edition this October, split across two exciting programmes. Join us to celebrate the launch of Programme 1, featuring a new installation and film Whoopsie’s Model (2022) by lead artist Patrick Goddard, together with 20 artists’ works from across the world.

Goddard’s transformation of the gallery into an immersive experience of an abandoned urban garden will
uniquely encompass all of the Programme 1 films, exploring nostalgia, ecology and our relationship with animals.

Plastique Fantastique‘s live performance Flight of the Termite will summon Termites and present sounds, narratives and projections to deliver Termite communications. The performance will include a Termite ‘Queen’s Speech’ concerning the drive to lay, build and grow and the fate of newly hatched jobseekers. The performance is a celebration of non-human societies and an allegory for human societies, presenting the shared or diverging ‘values’ or hierarchies found in Termite and Human worlds.

Members of Plastique Fantastique involved in this performance will be Alex Marzeta, David Burrows, Vanessa Page, Frankie Roberts, Benedict Drew, Simon O’Sullivan. The performance will start at approximately 7.45pm.
