Draped in a white sheet, the sitter in Sondra Perry’s suite of two photographs, White Sheets, is only partially revealed. In the first image her two hands, protruding from the drapery, flip the viewer off, while in the second her arm appears mid-motion, in the process of manipulating this all-over shrouding her body. Created as part of a suite of eight photographs, in these pieces and her practice more broadly Perry draws attention to the conditions of visibility of the black body as well as digital technologies employed in representation. She recently organized the two-day event, Hypervisibilities, with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School.
