Florence Peake

Southwark Park Galleries
New major commission opening at Southwark Park Galleries!
Southwark Park Galleries present Factual Actual: Ensemble, a new immersive and performative installation by Florence Peake. Enveloping both the galleries, Peake’s major solo commission inlcudes a new performance and a monumental 50 metre painting collectively developed in a series of public workshops using her distinctive gestural, and movement marking techniques.
Re-interpreting and expanding on a performance at the National Gallery in 2021, this exhibition interrogates what a painting can be, resisting a classical and static tradition, through the movement of the body.

Factual Actual: Ensemble will be open 16 April – 2 July 2023, co-commissioned by Southwark Park Galleries, London, and Towner, Eastbourne, in partnership with Fruitmarket, Edinburgh, where the exhibition will tour later in 2023 and 2024.
