20 February – 20 March 2021

PEER is delighted to present Crocodile Cradle, a new exhibition on three platforms: a filmed performance online, accessible via a QR code; a text collage on the gallery's glass façade; and a book, to be published this summer. For this collaborative project, artist Simon Moretti invited 51 artists including Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press, Tacita Dean, Liam Gillick, Lubaina Himid, Christian Marclay and Cerith Wyn Evans to supply a text that they have written or found.

The artists' texts have been brought to life with a reading by actor Alastair Mackenzie; a 38-minute-film of his one-take performance will be viewable on smartphones via a QR code, accessible from the gallery windows and online. A live performance and publication will follow later in the year.
