Patrick Hough predominantly uses digital media in order to investigate various historical and contemporary narratives and often uses props or artefacts to reference specific incidents from a range of cultural histories. Questioning the relationship between humans and objects (both virtual and physical) his practice reflects upon the way in which cinematic images are indelibly embedded in our perception of history.
Patrick received his BA in Fine Art Media from NCAD, Dublin in 2011 and his MA in Fine Art from the Royal College of Art, London in 2013. Recent solo exhibitions include: False Starts, Solstice Arts Centre, Navan; And If In A Thousand Years: Jerwood / FVU Awards, Firstsite, Colchester, UK. Recent group exhibitions: Nature as Data, Shanghai Sculpture Park, Shanghai; The Medium is the Message, The Library Project, Dublin; Abracadabra, 6th Moscow Biennial of Young Art, Moscow and Artist Film International, Whitechapel Gallery, London and MAAT, Lisbon. Hough is a recipient of the 2019 Film London Flamin Production Awards, the 2017 PLASTIK Award at PLASTIK Festival of Artist Moving Image, Dublin and the 2016 Jerwood / FVU Awards. His work is supported by an Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Bursary.
