Opening Saturday, January 25th at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles is “Astral Plane,” a solo exhibition of new work by Mai-Thu Perret. In recent years, Mai-Thu Perret’s work has addressed relationships between pure formalism, applied craft, and spiritual discourse, revealing points where seemingly contradictory approaches to object- or image-making overlap. The works in Astral Plane––including a new series of tapestries, ceramic objects, and a wicker sculpture––push these investigations a step further by subjecting formal vocabularies to degrees of visual emptiness and blankness. And though they bring together specific narratives from diverse cultural histories, many have been made using processes in which control and intentionality are offset by chance and pre-existing material conditions.
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 25th, 2014. 6-9pm.
“Astral Plane” will be on view through March 22nd, 2014.
