'Unfaithful ideas' - a lecture by Florence Peake
Florence Peake’s practice encompasses visual art, dance and performance. Recent work has been concerned with the often hidden production processes of artworks interacting with, re-imagining and re- framing procedures, actions and gestures involved in both making a piece of work and packaging it (literally). Peake often incorporates large-scale objects and materials that change and re-form. Peake's practice uses drawing, painting and sculpture materials combined with found, appropriated and fabricated objects placed in relationship to the moving body. Site and the placement of performance and audience, live and recorded text, as well as a well-developed sense of wit and humour, are key to her body of work.
This talk will focus on her methods working across media, transferring ideas into different art forms - how an idea finds its medium. Live performative demonstrations will be included.
Florence Peake is an Artsadmin Associate artist 2012-15 (Artsadmin is based at Toynbee Hall in Commercial Street). Her work has been shown nationally and internationally and performed at the National Portrait Gallery; BALTIC; David Roberts Art Foundation; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Rich Mix Gallery; Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry; Toynbee Studios, London; Chapter Arts, Cardiff; Brunel University; the Exchange Gallery, Penzance.
