PIP4: Patrick Ward ― Extension

Poor Image Projects invites you to an evening of sound and image hosted by Patrick Ward at MAP Charity's Hope House Gallery, Leeds.

Created specifically for the renowned COSMIC SLOP sound system, Ward’s audio visual installation Extension will shift, adjust and develop throughout its duration. Off-camera anonymity casts unease over sustained ambient textures while restless, asymmetric structures stumble into dance floor rhythms. Across multiple screens syncretic moments are teased, sustained and pulled apart.

Patrick Ward is an artist working with the moving image in its various modes of exhibition, performance and installation. Ward is a PhD candidate in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, University of Leeds, where he is researching the technical, political and material relations between audiovisual synchrony and post-cinematic conventions of realism.

This event is free to attend but donations will be collected for MAP Charity. These can be made here via the Eventbrite link and/or on the evening.

All money raised will go towards helping MAP Charity to continue the important work that they do for young people in the local community.

Poor Image Projects (PIP) is a nomadic event series showcasing experimental moving image and audio-visual art. Hosting screenings, performances and installations, PIP unfolds in various spaces in and around Leeds.

PIP is led by practice-led PhD candidate Bethan Hughes and BA Fine Art alumna Anya Stewart-Maggs.

Additional thanks go to graphic designer Jamie Hudson and photographer Jules Lister.
