It's the er it's the aspect of the words appearing on the screen by Patrick Coyle

“It’s the er it’s the aspect of the words appearing on the screen” is the title and first sentence of an audio recording made by Patrick Coyle before, during and after a jog, which he subsequently used as the basis for a video he produced using most of the filters and transitions available within free video editing software.




Patrick Coyle (b.1983, Hull) expands on personal anecdotes and encounters through performance, writing and installation. His performances often take the form of semi-improvised guided tours that incorporate sculptural and architectural elements. Coyle completed MFA Art Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London (2010) and BA Fine Art at Byam Shaw, University of the Arts London (2005). 

He recently delivered performances (* = with exhibition title) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (* ‘fig-futures Week 4 / Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio’); Aberystwyth Arts Centre (* ‘Is This Planet Earth?’); Recent Activity, Birmingham; Ty Pawb, Wrexham (* ‘Is This Planet Earth?’); Haltemprice Leisure Centre, Hull (* ‘High Enterprise’); 53 Beck Road, London (* ‘HOUSE WORK’); Austrian Cultural Forum, London; Central Booking, New York (* ‘Talk Talk’); Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (* ‘fig-2 28/50 Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio’); ANDOR Gallery, London (* ‘It Said’); Global Committee, New York; El Tercer Lugar, Buenos Aires; Westminster Reference Library, London; Catalyst Arts, Belfast; Van Alen Institute, New York; Tate Modern, London; Pump House Gallery, London (* ‘You Cannot Step Twice Into The Same River’); and Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark (* ‘Nervous Systems – Languages of Wonder & Denial’).
