Pyramid Selling – Mick Peter at Tramway

Mick Peter, Pyramid Selling.

This May Day weekend treats included Mick Peter’s new show at Tramway:

‘Pyramid Selling is a solo exhibition of new sculpture. It draws on a number of sources, including those of literature, commercial illustration and graphic design. Mimicking the tropes of ‘witty’ graphic design from the 60’s and 70’s, the exhibition takes a satirical look at the role of the individual against the backdrop of industry and labour (the making of his exhibition at Tramway included). The sculpture groups taken together set up a conversation between contradictory modes of representation as well as notions of commerce and fabrication.’
