Mai-Thu Perret The Blazing World

About

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.

The Blazing World, Perret’s first major solo exhibition in the UK, explores the subject of witchcraft and the relationship between women’s oppression and the emergence of capitalism. In her immersive installation at Spike Island, a theatrical stage recalls sacred forms of architecture and is punctuated with ritualistic sculptures, puppets and textiles.
