Following on from the success of his exhibition ‘ The Forever Loop’ at the Barbican, Eddie Peake has taken over the White Cube Gallery with his latest immersive exhibition, ‘Concrete Pitch’. Photos of the exhibition space, flooded with soft pink light, have been popping up on our news feed for weeks so we headed down to the Bermondsey hot spot to check it out for ourselves.
Inspired by a youth spent on concrete recreation grounds in Finsbury Park, ‘Concrete Pitch’ creates an adult playground of paintings, sculpture and soundscapes. The gallery has been filled with bold neon paintings, snaking steel tables, vibrating speakers and a low hum of distorted recordings from Stroud Green Road. Throughout the exhibition Kool London, one of London’s longest running underground stations, broadcast live from the gallery offering up the soundtrack of East London estates in the early nineties. You’ve only got till the April the 8th to surround yourself in Peake’s new world and it’s definitely an exhibition not to be missed.
