PEACOCK is a collaborative project between artists Chris Attenborough and Sean Naftel. Both graduates of the National University of Ireland, Galway, PEACOCK has been creating inteventionist installations and events in the USA and in Ireland since 2008. Their installations democratize aesthetics to activate the space, and engage the viewer (often unknowingly) to become a participant.
Each piece becomes an entity of its own, unreflective of the installation that came before. Yet running throughout the entire body of work is a mashing of cultures and ideals that comments, provokes, and laughs at communal histories; creating at first a smart ass response, that through further investigation leads to the underbelly of the common threads that exists throughout disparate communities.
