For the NOW Gallery on the Greenwich Peninsula, Florence Peake is creating a new sculptural performance work. A play with the weather and environment of the glass-walled gallery, dancers will build structures in response to the light and atmosphere and presence of people in the space.
SHIFT CONSTRUCT will move between indoor and outdoor spaces over three hours; audiences are welcome to come and go at their leisure.
Florence Peake is a London-based artist. With an extensive training in dance and a background in painting, Florence Peake’s performance practice uses drawing, painting and sculpture materials combined with found and fabricated objects placed in relationship to the moving body. Site and audience, live and recorded text, wit and humour are key to her work. Recent work includes; MAKE at BALTIC (2013) and Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2012); Duckie Goes To The Gateways commission (2013); REMAKE at V22 Young London (2013), Moving Museum (2013), Baltic 39 (2012) and the Lanchester Gallery (2012); Chorus; Swell The Thickening Surface Of at Tintype (2013) and David Roberts Foundation (2013), Paper Portraits (2010) at the National Portrait Gallery. As a performer she works with filmmakers, artists and choreographers, most recently touring with Station House Opera’s Roadmetal, Sweetbread. Florence Peake is an Associate Artist with Artsadmin.

ReviveHER are James Cooper, Henry Bennett, Nick Hadfield and Will Best who will be curating music for NOW Later at the NOW Gallery for the next 9 months.
ReviveHER was founded 5 years ago with the aim to revive something missing in London’s night time culture. With a booking policy of interesting and exotic guests – DJs’ DJs, Forgotten Legends and Future Heroes from all across the world, the idea was to focus on quality music, specific sounds and locations. Juxtaposing forgotten legends with the future heroes; master and apprentice; opening barriers between crowds, mindsets and demographics. The music policy would be forward thinking and open, but also highly influenced by dance music’s history: disco and early house. Since its conception, ReviveHer has thrown parties in Loft Spaces, Theatres, Community Centres, Railway Arches, Factories, and festivals with timeless guests including MCDE, Tim Sweeney, Prosumer, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Maurice Fulton, Lovefingers, Jackmaster, Sophie, Koreless, Midland and Julio Bashmore. ReviveHer will soon be launching their record label with the debut release of ReviveHer member Henry Bennett.
We are in good company, so explore vibrant Greenwich Peninsula on the last Friday of the month. Drop by The Jetty for pop up performances and public art or take a tour of Lazarides Editions and stroll through the Greenwich Ecology Park. The South London Art Map will run special tours of the Peninsula including Antony Gormley’s Quantum Cloud and Richard Wilson’s Slice of Life. Don’t forget to sample a range of special pale ales at the Meantime Brewery Beer Box.
