Hannah Perry (b. 1984) is a British artist working mainly in installation, print and video, recently graduated from The Royal Academy of Arts. Continuously generating and manipulating materials – video footage, sound clips, images and objects, Perry develops a sprawling network of references, carefully exploring personal memory in today’s hypertechnological society. Perry is guided by music, speech, repetition, focalization and deceleration, revealing the strength of our personal investment in images of the illusory, which she de nes as youth, power, sex, taste, lifestyle, as well as the prescriptive nature of these desires.
