London-based artist Eddie Peake combines live performance with sculpture, video, installation and painting to create an energetic gallery experience.

Sexuality and desire are constant themes in Peake’s live performances that typically foreground the naked body.

The Forever Loop presents a choreographed, looped performance that weaves in and out of synchronisation with a video of past performances, a home movie from his childhood and a film shot at the studio of koollondon.com.

Set against a backdrop of large scale installations from maze-like, plastered wall structures that frame both the viewer and performer to a raised scaffold walkway, the performers move in and out of the spaces taking the viewer on a dramatic journey, while a sheer suited roller skater glides fluidly through the space.

The installation is populated with surreal objects Including a cast of Perspex bears, brightly coloured whale bones, a metal figure with an acrylic box head filled with autobiographical items, as well as delicate bronze pipettes nestled on shelves with plaster sculptures.

Nudity included! No photos allowed!
