Peter Clarke was born in 1929 in Simon's Town. The Group Areas Act moved him to Ocean View in 1973, and he has lived and worked there ever since. He is best known for his paintings and prints of the daily life of Cape communities, yet in the last three decades he has also quietly produced handcrafted concertina books. Just Paper and Glue presents this rarely exhibited and published aspect of Clarke's lifelong practice. The catalogue includes an extensive interview with Clarke by Hans Ulrich Obrist on the occasion of his retrospective, Peter Clarke: Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats, at Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) in London on 16 January 2013.
