This event has ended.

Yancey Richardson presents Rachel Perry’s Soundtrack to My Life, the artist’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Throughout her career, Perry has used familiar materials such as register receipts, produce stickers, shopping bags and voicemail messages to comment on what she calls “the business of living.” Comprised of a series of large-scale collages based on the lyrics of popular songs, Soundtrack to My Life continues Perry’s interest in observing, collecting and utilizing the pedestrian materials and experiences of daily life to comment on the permeation of daily existence by consumer culture.

In the project gallery, Perry presents new examples of her ongoing project Lost in My Life, a series of photographs of the artist subsumed in the discarded minutia of consumer culture. Part performance, part installation, Perry immerses herself in environments built from familiar, leftover consumer materials: price tags, produce stickers, markers and gift boxes. Perry appears in every image, though she never reveals her face, emphasizing the dichotomy between personal identity and the anonymity of daily existence. In the artist’s words, “These leftovers form the language of modern life.”
