About Hannah Perry

“My work is often about accidental rhythms, or finding beauty in daft moments,” says Hannah Perry, who primarily produces short films, as well as creating installations, prints, and live performances. Her films are formed of a pastiche of sounds and footage, which she shoots herself and clips from other sources, among them, in her words, “old, strange documentaries in video libraries, or…biopics about comedians.” She then weaves these various moving images together into an intentionally disjointed whole, in which she elides distinctions between her own footage and that of others. The resultant pieces are characterized by a pace and rhythm that is fitting for the Internet Age. Through them, Perry presents a rich array of historical and current cultural references, and comments on the power of the mass media to shape our desires and identities.
