An exhibition of image based performance and performative interventions along a line.
A line intersects, divides and connects space. Physical space, conceptual space, emotional space and imagined space. It emphasises and erases. It marks an action and prompts an action.
Peter Spiers incorporates performative actions and processes with photography, video, site-specific gallery and context-based installations and interventions. These can be seen as a series of experiments into phenomenological concepts of perception, meaning, belief, actuality and how we engage with the world we inhabit…
