about this work

Untitled, 2014 is part of an ongoing project, The Crystal Frontier, which creates a fictional female Utopia with artifacts, products and writings from this Utopian reality represented as works for exhibition. In creating a multi-dimensional, multi-disciplinary work such as this, Mai-Thu Perret brings ideas of feminism, capitalism and equality to a new understanding and so doing echoes the work of Hannah Hoch.

about Mai-Thu Perret

Originally studying English Literature at Cambridge University, Perret works against an extensive backdrop of art historical and literary inspirations, drawing from this vast catalogue of influences. As a Swiss artist of Franco-Vietnamese origin, she addresses sustained narratives, combining feminist politics with literacy texts, homemade crafts and 20th century avant-garde aesthetics. Perret’s work is multidisciplinary, installation-based, and performative, breathing ideas of modern utopias and the consumption of art and literature.

Mai-Thu Perret had solo exhibitions including shows at the Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht. Past group exhibitions have included the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Marian Goodman Gallery, Paris; Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and the 2011 Venice Biennale. Perret won both the Zurich Art Prize, and the Manor Cultural Prize in 2011.
