Somerset House Studios artist Hannah Perry will present a solo exhibition at Somerset House in July, with new work addressing questions of gender, class, mental health and the impact of technology on how we communicate our inner worlds.
Inspired by her own personal experiences and the recorded experiences of young people who have participated in workshops over the past year, Perry will create new work that merges fact and fiction in a dynamic audio-visual installation.
A highlight of the exhibition will be a new 360° film, featuring the latest photographic technology and reacting to audience movements. Navigating a labyrinth of mirrors and glass walls to reach a ‘safety zone’ at the heart of the exhibition, visitors will be confronted by the spectacular filmic centrepiece. Situated in this space, Perry will also stage several large-scale choreographed performances with a specially composed musical score and a script drawing on the research undertaken with young people.
