Mai-Thu Perret @ Simon Lee Gallery
23 November 2016 - 4 February 2017
For Mai-Thu Perret’s second solo exhibition, and her first in London, she creates interdisciplinary works that combine the languages of feminism, politics, theatre, nature, religion and art history. The exhibition Zone expands on Perret’s own fictional narrative The Crystal Frontier, which the artist has been writing since 1999, that follows a group of women who form a commune New Ponderosa Year Zero in the remote desert of South Western New Mexico, in an attempt to escape capitalism and patriarchal convention. Perret’s new body of work draws on French avant-garde writer and feminist theorist Monique Wittig’s novel Les Guérillères (first published in 1969) that imagines a society run by a tribe of warrior lesbian women.
