Plague-Orgy-Time: Dutton and Peacock

May 20, 1998 - August 9, 1998

AWE Gallery

Plague-Orgy-Time is a collaborative work by British artists, Dutton & Peacock. Both Steven Dutton and Percy Peacock live and teach in Sheffield, England. Their collaborative and independent projects have been exhibited internationally.

In this video projection the artists have constructed a bizarre miniature landscape of debris, dust and what they describe as “weak” materials. The sequence of constructed, destroyed and reconstructed scenarios are reminiscent of the video piece The Way Things Go by Fischli and Weiss shown at the Art Gallery of Windsor the previous year. There is a sense of absurdist mania and hilarity to its narrative of continual disruption. The work suggests a kind of mirror to generalized visions of utopia and apocalypse influenced by massive urban regeneration programs within cities such as Sheffield and Windsor.
