INCA is proud to announce Sondra Perry’s first solo exhibition. The show consists of four pieces: a video from 2015 titled “Lineage for a Multiple-Monitor Workstation: Number One”, a new piece titled “Black Panther Ballon”, a new version of Perry’s performance “Peg” and a piece from 2010 titled “Red Summer”.
“Lineage for a Multiple-Monitor Workstation: Number One” is a 26 minute double-projection video. In this work Perry combines family documentary with staged fictional performance, the personal and the political, the intimate and the critical, family traditions and the history of a country.
“Red Summer” is a series of photographs that take their name from the race riots of 1919. The photo series captures the artist’s grandparents after she ignited smoke bombs in their backyard: the artist grandparents used the photography session to reflect on their adolescence, growing up, and summertime in the segregated south. These photographs are both documents and staged constructions that serve as vehicles to connect the struggles of the past with those of the present.
“Black Panther Ballon” is a single chanel video of a black panther mylar balloon, floating around the artist’s studio.
Sondra Perry performed a new version of “Peg” at INCA Friday October 30. Artifacts from the performance were left in the space.
