MAKING SENSUOUS KNOWLEDGE: THE PRACTICE OF AARON MCPEAKE
How to make sense of our lives? If you’re inclined to take this as a moral question, don’t. It doesn’t ask how we should or ought to live. It wonders how we understand our experience of being.

Spike Island (2014)
I am standing with Aaron McPeake in the centre of his residency studio at Spike Island as he turns the dull, soft light of a Tibetan Singing Bowl over in his hands. At our feet, lined up on newspaper against the wall, rows of green wax moulds listen, mutely holding the shape and size of the original song which, once cast in bronze, they will recast arranged to their own tuning.

When I first heard one of Aaron McPeake’s bronzes struck, the sound transported me to a navigation buoy anchored at the mouth of Sag Harbour on Long Island.
