British Art Show 9: Florence Peake CRUDE CARE


Florence Peake understands the world through movement, experiment and touch. Peake’s fascination with geology, healing and the environment are played out in her new works – a ceramic sculpture, performance and film each titled CRUDE CARE (2021) – informed by Aberdeen’s landscape, its natural resources granite and oil, and the treatment of precarious workers in the care sector.

CRUDE CARE will be performed by Florence Peake’s Aberdeen collaborators on the following dates
Saturday 21 August
Saturdays 4, 11, 25 September
Saturdays 2, 9 October
3pm (approx 15mins)

The three works titled CRUDE CARE (2021) were commissioned by Hayward Gallery Touring and Aberdeen Art
Gallery for British Art Show 9 and made possible with Art Fund support.
