For the exhibition up, Patrick Coyle explores the extent to which objects and images can resemble signs, and in this case, an arrow.
Presented as a wall of inkjet prints on green A4 paper, Coyle's research material is reassembled into an artwork that responds to the unique architecture of the Jerwood Project Space.
Through investigating the semiotic significance of the arrow, Coyle attempts to find new meanings and reactivate old ones, intending the recurring motif to function both as a 'conversation piece' for visitors to the cafe, and as a reflection of his initial encounter with the space.
As an extension of his research, Coyle would like to invite members of the public to attend one-to-one meetings with him in the cafe, to exchange ideas and images that might arise from the display.
Each meeting will influence the next, and the resulting material from these discussions will culminate in a radio presentation on Resonance 104.4FM during the final week of the exhibition.
