The next installment of SI’s weekly moving image presentation is a three-part video sampler by Lee “Scratch” Perry that was displayed on one of Perry’s TV sculptures during his first institutional solo exhibition, MIRROR MASTER FUTURES YARD (April 19 – June 02, 2019). Together, these videos depict Perry’s daily life in the town of Einsiedeln, Switzerland. Oscillating between his studio and the landscape surrounding his home, Perry’s spontaneous recordings demonstrate the confluence between his music and art making, highlighting Perry’s signature techniques of re-mixing, re-versioning and modulating existing materials.
