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.
