Houston-based artist Sondra Perry explores the intersection of technology and black history through interactive sculptural and installation works. Following a solo exhibition at The Seattle Art Museum in the fall of 2017, Perry will use the Disjecta exhibition to explore a more experimental execution of her practice. Continuing her interests in “blackness as a technology, changing and adapting, through the constant surveillance and oppression of black folks.” Perry will present multiple works referencing sci-fi/horror video game/movie culture, incorporating the vibrant chroma key blue to reference the production of special effects, allowing the viewer’s physical body to seamlessly slip into the artist’s imagined worlds. Through the integration of digital platforms into installation and context-based artworks, Perry raises the questions of identity in conversation with contemporary articulations and embodiments of labor, desire, and materiality.
