Sondra Perry - Chromatic Saturation

At Disjecta Contemporary Art Center

Sat, Mar 17 to Sun, Apr 29

show

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 17, 6-9pm / FREE

Disjecta is proud to announce the fourth and final exhibition of this season’s Curator in Residence series, lead by Julia Greenway. Sondra Perry’s’ Chromatic Saturation explores the intersection of technology and black history through sculptural and installation works. 

Examining “blackness as a technology, changing and adapting, through the constant surveillance and oppression of black folks.” Perry formulates identity through familial history and digital representations of the body.

Through the portrayal of lineage as documentary and 3D rendered avatar, Perry examines the impact of digital media in formulating identity. Referencing the materials and color palettes of open source 3D design, the artist responds to gaming and sports platforms that capitalize on and simulate black bodies. Utilizing a semi-autobiographical familial narrative, Perry immerses the viewer in a unique navigation of personhood.
