Mai–Thu Perret,
Féminaire’ @
David Kordansky,
Los Angeles 

ositioned at either
end of the gallery, 
hese distinct groups
of objects 
create a
showdown of
competing geometries
whose gravity &
imposing presence
are reminiscent of
political monuments
and spiritual

Title meaning: 
Thu Perrett's ‘Féminaire’ 
is centered on exploring 
(and generating) feminist 
narratives and counter-
narratives that cast the 
role of the art object in 
new light, introducing 
utilitarian, symbolic, 
and even mystical 
possibilities in contexts 
that are often limited 
to formalist readings. 

Mai-Thu's creations:
Consist of sculptures,
ceramic works,
performances, and
texts – existing at
the intersection of 
contemporary culture,
art historical insight,
and visceral materiality. 

The exhibition:
Is Geneva-based 
Thu Perrett's 3rd
solo with David
Kordansky, for
which the artist
presents two
bodies of work:
Les guérillères,’
a monumental
installation of
figurative sculptures 
positioned on a
single plinth, and
a gridded wall
arrangement of
dozens of ceramic
wall pieces.
