Milly Peck creates scenes that are often cropped into a smaller, more considered view points to create a sense of staged liveness similar to a theatrical set. In previous works, she has drawn from “Foley” (sound effects that are added to films and other media in postproduction) as a process for exploring the reproduction of the minute detail of everyday life and for the architectural qualities of the Foley-studio, where the Foley process takes place.

Peck’s work is often site-specific, responding to existing architectural and historical features whilst negotiating the demands of a location, working in human scale to evoke use. Although she creates imitations, her work poses the possibility of activity. Peck’s prop-like construction, and recent introduction of lighting, is reflective of her broader interest in theatre and the stage. By repurposing dramatic devices used within this context, Peck continues to explore elements of fakery and imitation present within the everyday, revealing their often comedic potential.

Milly Peck (b. 1990, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. She holds a BFA in Fine art from Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK (2012) and an MA in Sculpture from The Royal College of Art (2016). Awards include: Jerwood Visual Arts Artist Bursary (2018); David Troostwyk/Matt's Gallery Studio Award (2016); Gilbert Bayes Charitable Trust Grant (2016); Villiers David Travel Award (2015); Peel Award (2011).
