Letting fly with a volley of energetic new works, Eddie Peake’s new show Adjective Machine Gun marks the first time the artist has put together performance pieces with static sculptures. The mixed-media practitioner based in London has plenty of weapons in his arsenal, including photography, neon sculpture and painting, and at White Cube, Bermondsey, he is combining his firepower with dynamic works surrounding centrally-placed static sculptures on the themes of sexuality, gender and voyeurism.
Peake has recreated large elements of the now-defunct penguin enclosure at London Zoo, designed in 1934 by Berthold Lubetkin, to act as an arena, in which he, with dancers and musicians, will perform over the course of the exhibition. There’s plenty more to get involved with in Adjective Machine Gun, including the introduction of a new neon faun who is to be a recurring character in Peake’s future works. Shoot over to the gallery before 21st April.
