Tenderpixel is pleased to present Patrick Coyle: To Draw A Blank, an exhibition and series of performances. Coyle re-presents found images, objects and texts that demonstrate an encounter with misunderstanding, whether in terms of ambiguous meaning or a deliberate misappropriation of material. Working across writing, performance, sculpture, drawing, photography, collage and painting, Coyle displays new works which explore varied meanings of âblankness'.
Originating from a âFamiliar Phrases' picture puzzle illustration (which bears a striking resemblance to the artist), the title of the exhibition suggests multiple readings of the blank; âgoing blank' in terms of forgetting, the blank canvas or page and the blank template as arbitrary constraint. Utilising the stage area of the basement space, Coyle will programme a series of performances delivered both by himself and others. Also displayed within the lower gallery will be a series of drawings that document a continuously evolving sculpture, which will in turn function as a performance prop.
