Patrick Costello was the 2011-2012 New City Artist-in-Residence at The Haven. Patrick is an artist whose practice is rooted in the collaborative and the performative, spanning across the disciplines of printmaking, sculpture, puppetry, and theater.
Working with ecological and autobiographical stories, his work explores the complexities embedded within site and identity. Originally hailing from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia, he has apprenticed with the Bread and Puppet Theater, and the Fabric Workshop and Museum, and has studied Pochinko clown technique with Sue Morrison in Toronto, Ontario. Patrick completed his MFA in Studio Art at Hunter College in 2018, and earned a BA from the University of Virginia in 2008. His recent performative experiments include a participatory choral installation in an art gallery, and a experimental play centered around an invented family tree, Judy Garland, and a very famous geranium. Patrick lives in a seven-person collective house in Brooklyn, where he maintains a small native wildflower meadow on the roof.
