Peter Georgallous’s practise is inextricably and wholly interwoven into the fabric of his life. His primary motivation is to engage in a form of storytelling, and as a consequence his work is diverse, being realised across disciplines in performance, video and installation. As such Georgallou challenges us to consider whether life or work is primary, which is informing the other, and how.
Often beginning with a journey, the artist sets himself impossible and often absurd tasks: paddle a sealed piano along the river; build and navigate a bicycle powered boat; ride a bicycle laden with 150 kilograms with no gears up a mountain. There is a strong sense of adventure, and a Romantic longing for a pre-technological world where people performed ground breaking heroic drives Georgallou asks complex questions about modernity, human endeavour, the limitations and capabilities of man, and phenomenology.
