Tate Modern Performance

Eddie Peake: Amidst A Sea Of Flailing High Heels and Cooking Utensils, part 1

Eddie Peake DEM, performed at Cell Project Space, London, 2012

Eddie Peake presents a new performance made especially for the Tanks. He works with bodies, movement and music, playfully exploring physical form in all its manifestations – Peake’s ‘bodies’ become both sculptural and sexual objects via choreographed actions, encouraging the audience to give in to voyeuristic desire.

Eddie Peake (born 1981, London) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions displaying his work in sculpture, painting, performance and photography, include DEM, Cell Project Space, London (2012); Boydem, Mihai Nicodim, Los Angeles (2011); The Loving Clutches of My Hands, Southard Reid, London (2011); Double Negative, Christopher Crescent, London (2011); History, Lorcan O’Neill Streetview Project, Rome (2010); Ladies, Parade, London (2008).

Presented in co-operation with the Chisenhale Gallery, London, where Peake presents a related performance on Thursday 26 July 2012, 19.00
