Jenny Perlin

Visual Arts Residency

Jenny Perlin is an artist working between Brooklyn and Berlin, Germany. Her practice in 16mm film, video, and drawing works with and against the documentary tradition, incorporating innovative stylistic techniques to emphasize issues of truth, misunderstanding, and personal history. Her projects look closely at the ways in which social machinations are reflected in the smallest fragments of daily life. In her films, Perlin often combines handwritten text and drawn images, embracing the technical flaws of analog technologies.
