Continuing an ongoing exploration of ideas surrounding imitation, flatness and the stage prop, Milly Peck will create a new sculptural installation in direct response to the gallery space, parodying DIY culture in the domestic sphere. Employing cartoonish imagery pulled from the everyday as a backdrop, hand-drawn networks of faulty plumbing and heating systems will expand across the gallery overlapping one another on the brink of slapstick disfunction.
