This year Eddie Peake will participate in 'Performa 13' in New York.
'Performa' is the only biennial dedicated to commissioning, presenting and exploring new visual art performance across disciplines. Over three weeks the biennial will present more than 100 separate events and in over 40 venues will showcase new work.
For his 'Performa' commission Peake has developed a gallery-based performance in which the relationships between an ensemble are made palpable through a series of choreographed gestures and interactions. Featuring rhythmic musical compositions, this performance slowly builds in energy, taking surprising twists and turns and treading a fine line between displaying bodies in order to invite casual voyeurism, working with them to initiate more direct forms of address. Peake’s new work builds on a series of performances that he created in 2012 for Tate Modern and Chisenhale in London.
Eddie Peake will host a free artist class at the Performa Hub on Saturday 16 November 2013 at 1pm
