Florence Peake

Skin Press Body On (2015)

Skin Press Body On is a kinaesthetic surface developed from somatic dance practices and contact improvisation processes Peake has worked with in her performances with dancers. Skin Press Body On is an interactive object designed to encourage a direct sensual act with the body. It is at once a contact movement proposition, a duet, with an object and with the mirrored reflection.  Her work for Studio_Leigh is an alternative, immersive massage tool in the form of a mirrored walled surface comprising of 511 interactive rolling balls to offer a physically intimate experience of the body.

Florence Peake’s practice encompasses visual art, dance and performance. Recent work has been concerned with the often hidden production processes of artworks, interacting with, re-imagining and re-framing the procedures, actions and gestures involved in both making a piece of work and packaging it (literally).
