Peter Liversidge works across drawing, performance, installation, photography, painting, sculpture, interventions, artist’s books and multiples.
While his work has an assured lightness of touch and a quiet poeticism, there is also an underlying streak of dark, absurdist humour. A central aspect of Liversidge’s practice is the making of Proposals, groups of hand-typed and posted suggestions that range from the sublime to the ridiculous, forming the basis for exhibitions, works and performances. Three forthcoming solo exhibitions are planned – at Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh in February-April, 2010, Scottish National Gallery Of Modern Art, Edinburgh July – September 2010 and the Corcoran Gallery, Washington in Summer 2011.
