Ivan Morison and Heather Peak are leading contemporary artists who have established an ambitious collaborative practice that transcends traditional divisions between art, architecture, theatre and activism.

Their work is often performance-based and site-specific, existing as one-off events, social projects, or large-scale installations and buildings in public spaces.

They categorise their work as a situated practice constructed from layers of social sculpture and sculptural space.
