BALTIC Bites: Mick Peter

Publication Date 12 Jul 2019

In this BALTIC Bites film Mick Peter discusses his exhibition, To Me, To You in BALTIC's Level 4 gallery.

Mick Peter’s playful installations incorporate imagery influenced by illustration and commercial art. To Me, To You draws on archetypes of the artist in a narrative sequence about a sculpture being produced and displayed in a gallery.

Peter references how abstract modern sculpture has sometimes been used to represent the incomprehensibility of art in editorial illustrations in newspapers and magazines. By showing the imagined decisions being taken in a studio Peter wittily undermines the significance and authority of the finished sculpture.
