Patrick’s work explores the theatrical possibilities inherent in the back lanes of one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs. Fitzroy – teeming with histories past and imagined. He has approached these spaces and urban atmospheres as ready-made sets. Each back lane provides its own unique arrangement of visual elements, including stencil art, signage, textures and materials.
The ‘set’ is dramatised by placing a series of stand-alone objects as the main character; and articulating them with what is visually available.
