Click to enlargeMAI-THU PERRET : THE BLAZING WORLD
Jan 19 - Mar 24, 2019
Mai-Thu Perret’s multidisciplinary practice intertwines seemingly diverse traditions such as Modernism, the Arts and Crafts movement, and Eastern spiritualities. In 1999 Perret created The Crystal Frontier, a fictional all-women commune located in the New Mexico desert. The story of this autonomous community provides the framework for Perret’s interest in radical feminist politics and the objects she presents often masquerade as the ‘hypothetical production’ of the women inside The Crystal Frontier.
