Berry Patten (born 1986, Essex, UK). Patten processes personal experiences and the everyday through digital language and tools, in order to produce works that chase the authenticity of the imagery she encounters. Her work aestheticizes everyday objects and tropes of popular culture, touching on memories and feelings as well as notions of aspirational living. Her still life photographs and collages evoke themes of girlishness, teenage identity and womanhood. Sampling from dance music, film and personal footage and memorabilia, her videos also display a finely tuned sensitivity to colour, pattern and texture and bring together a dreamy wistfulness with harder edged humour and sense of absurdity. Patten's work was part of Peckham Artist Moving Image festival in 2012, and was included in Chimera QTE at Cell Project Space in 2012/13.
