Glasgow-based sculptor Mick Peter transforms imagery from fiction, illustration and graphic design into playful installations, liberating images from the flat surface of the page to create witty and exuberant sculptures.
For this exhibition, Mick Peter has created an environment for Jupiter Artland near Edinburgh.
His installation features cement wall reliefs, objects and monstrous ‘popcorn’. The modular cement forms remind us of public sculpture. The unpredictability of popcorn, meanwhile, represents both the ‘accidental’ sculptural nature of the eventual form and the processes used: they are made in expanding polyurethane, a similarly unpredictable material. This surprising combination blurs the forlorn nature of some public spaces with the unruliness of the wild woodland and the natural environment.
A free return bus to is available once daily from the city centre during the Edinburgh Art Festival, leaving from and returning to the corner of Queen Street and Frederick Street. Tickets for the bus also allow free entry into Jupiter Artland. Booking essential. Please check the Edinburgh Art Festival website for details.
