R Ï S E  P E A C O C K / Statement


“ Feelings of wonder become the means of processing our initial responses; for wonder creates a zone of autonomy, as Luce Irigaray argues: a testing site for rehearsing identities yet to be defined.”


- Lynne Cooke, Hindsight: Reading Island Universe Retroactively



Rïse Peacock investigates material phenomena that expose physicality and the awareness of a body in space. Through her interdisciplinary practice which incorporates drawing, installation, and sculpture Rïse’s practice emphasizes physical materials, their unique characteristics, and their ability to behave as a catalyst for physical interaction between object / other or space / other.
