MICK PETER : PYRAMID SELLING
Jan 19 - Mar 12, 2016
Mick Peter's sculptures resemble quick hand drawn sketches which seem to have been cut from the flatness of the paper and dragged into three-dimensional space. For Pyramid Selling, originally commissioned for Tramway, Glasgow 2015, Peter transports us into a cartoon-like illustration realised on a monumental scale which takes a satirical look at the role of the individual against the backdrop of industry and labour.

In this reading group, led by critic and curator Isobel Harbison, we will read extracts from The Magic Christian by Terry Southern and Why Have I Not Written Any of My Books by Marcel Bènabou, discussing comic self-effacement as a literary conceit and artistic methodology. We will use the subject as a platform to discuss specific works of art by Mick Peter in Pyramid Selling and others.
Isobel Harbison is a London based, writer, critic and curator.

A two-venue exhibition exploring the relationship between drawing and photography, taking place at Drawing Room and The Photographer’s Gallery, London.
Drawing and photography are each considered the most direct, ‘transparent’ media with which to engage with the world. They share fascinating parallels: the relationship to the indexical, the blank sheet of paper or surface, graphite and silver, pencil weight and aperture, the sense of an invisible ‘apparatus’ (the camera and pencil), the engagement with surface, light, negative and positive and the trace. Double-take seeks to explore the multifarious ways photography and drawing have been combined and mirrored to extend both practices into new arenas in modern and contemporary practices.
