Koskela is proud to present "Horse Sword" an exhibition of new work, research and ideas about the periphery of a studio practice, from Melbourne-based artist Ghostpatrol.

All these peripheries rarely make it outside the din of an artists' studio, until now - where they come to form their own body of work. Pop down to Koskela for a chance to meet and chat with Ghostpatrol at the afternoon opening on May 31st.
