Florence Peake in costume in Tate St Ives

Judder Shudder, Tate St Ives

Curated Late at Tate as part of my role as Learning Curator at Tate St Ives. ‘Judder Shudder’ took place on Friday 13 April 2018 and featured solo and collaborative performances by Jonathan Baldock and Florence Peake. Inspired by the theatricality of Barbara Hepworth’s wheeled plinths in her studio at the Palais de Danse, the performance blurred sculpture, costume and performer to create an act of absurd ritualism, at once humorous and tense, light and dark.  Film programme featuring works by Rachael Jones, Anna Lucas & Alice Walton, Frances Scott and Florence Peake and footage from the recent collaborative performance of Rubato Dance with costumes by Jonathan Baldock.
