Neena Percy works across video, sculpture, painting and installation. Her research-led practice develops a system of references including the body, science, myth and desire.
Playing with materials and language in connection to her research, she seeks to question and/or celebrate past and present myths and cultural tropes around femininity, with recent works forming attempts to reconnect (wo)man with nature. Be that singing love songs to swallows at the edge of a cliff, or chanting an essay about our changing perceptions of the Moon.
Or, in other words...
I attempt to act as an echo;
as a voice that bounces around a space,
stemming from my surrounds to double double and distort it,
to come back to the listener in louder or quieter, familiar yet
uncanny or surprising ways.
Hopefully in the end I’ll leave you
listening to disembodied voices.
