A Smashed Window and an Empty Room deals with the impact of trauma on mental and emotional health as well as conditions and consequences of human interactions. With the large-format, pulsating sculpture Rage Fluids and the 360° film GUSH (both 2018), Perry reflects on coming to terms with grief, pain and loss. A newly produced hydraulic sculpture evokes moments of tenderness, intimacy and, violence through a mechanized dance with itself. Hannah Perry’s visual language utilizes coded and gendered industrial materials which reflect on the landscape and demographics that shaped her upbringing in the North of England.
