Dicks are on display in Peake’s loin-awakening, body-conscious transmedia storytelling. The 33-year-old artist has staged a naked five-a-side footy match, checked off collabs with Kendrick Lamar and Actress, and most recently, featured a man rubbing one out during Frieze (in the background of his "Anal House Sitdown" performance with Prem Sahib and George Henry Longly). But his art isn’t just pervily provocative: his graffiti, neons, day-glo paintings and marble sculptures round out a masterful oeuvre that some are pegging as a reboot of the YBA movement’s punk mutiny.
Eddie was commissioned to choreograph a perfomance at Performa 13 at the Swiss Institute of New York last year. He came us with the landmark "Endymion", featuring seven dancers, painted head to toe in glitter, four in gold and three in black, with music from Gwilym Gold, Alexis Nuñez, and Tim Goalen.
Eddie Peake's Frieze New York show in May this year was a highlight of the art fair, and a chance to see more of Eddie's sculptural work.
