Artist Mimi Winsor will be showing her latest tactile performance inspired by the now closed but famous Peek Freans biscuit factory sited in Bermondsey.
Winsor presents a series of ingenious contraptions, based on one of the factories production lines, where the machines were set amidst a whirl of factory workers who hurled sacks of flour, mountains of butter, shovels of sugar and finally trays of biscuits around in a seemingly chaotic choreographed dance.
Winsor orchestrates a playful encounter for the viewer in the crossover between contemporary art and theatre. Absurd in their conception, her installations are both humorous and delightfully ridiculous. Seemingly purposeful machines are operated to carry out futile tasks, creating a new process based sculpture live in the space.
