Breakfast with Florence Peakeevent • 21 Jan 2017 11am–12pm
Join us for croissants and coffee, and a chance to meet Florence Peake at this early research and development point in her project. Florence will be in conversation with Site Gallery Artistic Director, Laura Sillars.
Florence Peake is a London-based artist and choreographer. With extensive training in dance and a background in painting, her performance practice combines a variety of media—from drawing to sculpture—in relation to the moving body. Site and audience, live and recorded text, wit and humour are key to her work.
Her interdisciplinary projects, made both independently and collaboratively, have been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally since 1995 in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Prague, Sweden and Latvia. Peake’s work has also been commissioned and shown at prestigious venues such as the National Portrait Gallery (2008), National Review of Live Art (2009), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2012), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (2013) and Hayward Gallery (2014), Somerset house (2015), Serpentine Gallery (2016).
