Hannah Perry,
Viruses Worth
Spreading

@ Arsenal
Contemporary
— 

Imagined in
a realm where
relationships
share equal
footing in the
virtual and real
world — somewhere
between online
stalking, love
letters, sexts
and selfies.
’ 

The exhibition:
 
For her first solo
with Arsenal in
New York, London-
born multi-disciplinary
artist Hannah Perry 
combines video,
sculpture, installation,
music & performance
to navigate a terrain
where taste and class
interlock, where
communicable and
shared aesthetics
are solidified, and
where identity is
performed. 

Title meaning:
 
Viruses Worth
Spreading
’ comes
from a line of a
script written by
Perry – conjuring
the clichéd image
of ‘the hysterical
woman
’ who has
lost control.
— 
Voyeurism and 
power plays are 
unfortunately 
something that 
women have to 
grapple with within 
every area... being 
unapologetic about 
those experiences 
is exactly what that 
show was all about.
