Milly Peck, Everything Foley, 2018
Milly Peck, Everything Foley, 2018. Looped audio work which to accompanies 'Landing Good Sync Will Pay Dividends', 2018. 00:04:43.
2018

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 recent works, she draws from “Foley” (sound effects that are added to films and other media 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 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. She explores dramatic devices used within the theatrical genre of the farce, paying close attention to the importance of ‘off-stage action’ and drawing influence from stage directions and set design as well as the dialogue within plays.

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).
