Patrick Coyle is an artist who makes semi-improvised performances that play with spoken language and combine various modes of public address such as guided tours, sermons, poetry readings and songs. Drawing and sculpture are important aspects of Coyle’s work, and he and his two-year-old son are currently exhibiting crayon drawings they made together during lockdown in the group exhibition ‘Where We Are Now’ at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.
Jade Montserrat is an artist based in Whitby, England. She was the recipient of the Stuart Hall Foundation Scholarship supporting her PhD (via MPhil) at IBAR, UCLan, and the development of her work from her black diasporic perspective in the North of England. Jade works through performance, drawing, painting, film, installation, sculpture, print and text.
Sammy Playford is an artist living in Bristol, UK. She sometimes draws guts and ladders, sometimes stick n pokes, and sometimes writes poetry. Her work is into being a body, and not, listening to faeries, trans stuff, and necromancy. She has a book length poem about Bigfoot, ‘There’s Always Things Falling Out The Sky’, a collaboration with Roxy Topia & Paddy Gould published this year by Pink Sands Studio. Some of the work she’s most proud of is now ink on bodies, but a few other places it has been published, shown or performed over the years are Modern Queers (2021), Radmin, Bristol (2019), Supernormal Festival, Oxfordshire (2019), Outpost, Norwich (2018), Hauser & Wirth, Somerset (2017), Res., London (2016), Five Years, London (2015). Since 2014 her and Tom Prater have co-edited the artist-led journal, Doggerland. @sammyplayford on Instagram.
