MAKE takes an irreverent look at how sculpture is created, displayed and maintained. A task force of ten women build and then dismantle a monolithic structure through a series of choreographed tasks; ritualising, parodying and unveiling the often hidden labour of art-making. Through playful acts of absurd endeavour, MAKE deconstructs the traditional reverence towards and god-like status of the artist as author.
MAKE by Florence Peake was co-produced by Artsadmin and Dance Art Foundation in association with BALTIC and funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. MAKE was developed with support from Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Live Art Development Agency's DIY scheme, APT Deptford, Newlyn Exchange and Chisenhale Dance Space.
Florence Peake is an Artsadmin Associate Artist 2013-14.
