PEER

PEER logo

PEER was established in 1999 as an independent arts organisation to commission imaginative and ambitious arts projects by international and local artists in the heart of east London. PEER’s distinctive programme combines gallery-based activities with projects in the public realm and educational and community activities and events. As an artist and outreach-focussed organisation, it encourages risk-taking and innovation, presenting art in its dedicated gallery space on Hoxton Street and at various locations in the vicinity, including vacant buildings, the street, the canal towpath and public parks in Hackney. We also produce publications by artists, about artists and about the cultural impact of contemporary art.

Paul Scott, The Syria Series No: 2 Damascus, 2016.

Paul Scott, Home Truths

  • 2 March 2017 6-9pm
  • 3 March — 22 April 2017

Scott works onto industrially produced ceramic tableware as a collagist might, re-purposing these cultural artefacts in such a way as to offer new narrative interpretations that encourage re-examination. Drawing from his encyclopaedic knowledge of and fascination with the material, he alters, erases and adds new images to the highly detailed scenes and patterns of these domestic items, whereby the imagery is ruptured and recalibrated for a contemporary world. Scott’s interventions enable him to explore a range of issues from the ecology to the refugee crisis.

Open Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 6pm daily (+ see website for Easter closure details).
3 March to 22 April, opening event 6–9pm on Thursday 2 March.
