“Hung as in a basket from a single dull
star, is it a question of passion?
How do you cry about a crime, not yet
touched by the mild boredom of order?”
—Lubaina Himid

—Sylvie Fleury

Crocodile Cradle is an exhibition by Simon Moretti developed on three platforms: a filmed performance online; a text collage on the glass facade of PEER gallery, London; and a book. For this collaborative project, artist Simon Moretti invited fifty-one artists to supply a text that they had written or found, to be considered as part of a collaborative artwork to represent their thoughts in the current charged moment in history. The book, co-published with PEER, features an afterword by Ingrid Swenson and has been designed by A Practice For Everyday Life.

“Against a background of uncertainty or anxiety when many of us have been preoccupied with the restrictions and limitations placed on our lives,” writes PEER director Ingrid Swenson, “Crocodile Cradle has emerged as a polyphonic, big-hearted multiplatform project, wonderfully shape-shifting around the more conventional notion of an exhibition.”
