Cell Project Space present a solo project by Eddie Peake for the gallery's third solo commission for the CYcLORAMA programme.

DEM, the exhibition, is a rolling performance playing with the typical conventions and format of a solo show in a gallery. There will be 3 scheduled evening events over the course of the exhibition, as an integral and key element of the show. These are scheduled for Thursday 8th March, Sunday 18th March, and Sunday, 25th March, 7.30pm. Visitors will be accepted on a first come basis at the opening unless they have made a reservation.

Eddie Peake has used edited VHS footage from his own family archive as a central point of departure, but where one might ordinarily expect to find video played on a loop in a gallery, ‘DEM’ invites the audience to request it to be played from the beginning, or not. As such the role of the gallery invigilator also becomes an active ingredient in this transaction, and will be presented as a character within the exhibition. In addition to scheduled weekly performances Peake will exhibit a continuous episode of event over the period of three weeks whilst the gallery is open to the public, defying the usual role that performance might play in a gallery as the one-off temporal moment and the traditional interaction between players and audience. Peake aims to highlight the slippage between performance event and gallery exhibition. The artist will present moving image and live performance (including dancers and an original musical composition) in tandem- The one completing the other.

The artist’s work could be described as a last gasp of joyful narcissism where eroticism and gender politics are at the fore. He often puts himself at centre stage irrespective of whether he is visible in the work or not and as such plays on the idea of artist as genius.

Eddie Peake, graduated from Slade School of Art in 2006 and was a scholar at the British School at Rome, 2008- 2009. Selected solo exhibitions include, ‘Boydem’, Mihai Nicodim gallery, Los Angeles, 2011 'The Loving Clutches of My Hands', at Southard Reid, London, 'Double Negative' at Christopher Crescent, London, 2011, and 'History' at Galleria Lorcan O’Neill, Rome, 2010. He has been included in numerous group exhibitions and projects including, 'GLAZE', Bischoff Weiss, London, curated by George Henry Longly, with performances 'Contrapposto Pause' at V22 Young London, curated by Tara Cranswick, 2011 and 'Huh!' A performance work presented as part of 'Auto Italia Live episode 2: Cosmosis', 2011, at Auto Italia South East, London, live internet TV series with studio audience, simultaneously streamed live online. Forthcoming group exhibitions this month include ‘March’ at Sadie Coles HQ and ‘Surface to Surface’ at Jonathan Viner, London.
