Eddie Peake takes multi-disciplinary approaches in his ongoing exploration of the lapses in various modes of communication, and the ambiguities of sexuality and gender. Peake’s oeuvre has included video, photography, painting, sculpture, installation, and choreographed performances with sound. He is particularly interested in the translation, or transformation, of meaning between language and image, emotion, movement, and music. He sees human body, both his own and others’, as a potential sculptural object; one of Peake’s recurring personas is a faun. Peake is also known for his spray paintings on polished steel with psychedelic colors and slogans. He’s also made a series of Handschmeichier, or “pleasing to the hand”, sculptures.
British, b. 1981, London, United Kingdom
