An empirically grey area.
How can we approach making in the face of a threat from meaninglessness? Beyond a question of whether one should be making at all, Peter's work is centred around a question of what and how to make, and whether the act of making can in itself create meaning. The new body of work presented in this exhibition uses Martin Frederiksen's book, "An Anthropology of Nothing in Particular" as a key point of reference and departure. Image and narrative are largely removed in favour of anticipation and waiting, as Peter strives to make tangible this figurative "grey area" of meaning. The work seeks to evoke the sense of suspense found in a glimpse over a dividing wall, or the action that occurs just off stage. A reality that anticipates the possibility of meaning, but that must find a way of existing without any certainty of it.
