About Florence Peake: MAKE
Florence Peake brought her new performance MAKE to YSP. MAKE celebrated the working life at the Park, including the movement, cleaning and installation of sculptures.
Peake choreographed and directed performers through synchronised activity, to create a monolithic structure in Longside Gallery, which was immediately dismantled.
Based in London, Peake trained as a dancer and now works across performance, drawing, painting and sculpture. Recent projects include Paper Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, London, Duets for objects, The Place and Elsewhere Museum in North Carolina, USA.
MAKE was the result of a 2010 collaboration between the Live Art Development Agency and YSP, conceived by artist Joshua Soafar.

Henry Moore: Reclining Figure: Arch LegMoore’s recumbent figures reflect many different stages of abstraction, with Reclining Figure Arch Leg being highly abstract and comprising two highly simplified forms to suggest a body. Moore often thought of the human figure in terms of landscape, and the reclining position reflects the horizontal bands of earth, sea and sky. The torso and arched leg of this work could be seen as resembling a sea stack and arch as found around the coast of this country.
