David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to present new works by Mai-Thu Perret for Frieze New York. The sculptures and watercolors featured in this presentation are related to works in Perret’s solo exhibition Real Estate, on view at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome through June 26, 2022. These works draw on her interest in the goddesses of Roman mythology and elaborate upon her ongoing explorations of feminist counter-narratives and mystical and utopian impulses. While conceptually reframing archetypal narratives and iconography throughout this presentation, Perret has also revisited themes and forms from her previous works—particularly ones related to the female figure, symbolic interpretation, and art historical critique. Through such acts of retelling, Perret indicates the recursive nature of all stories, histories, and myths—repeated, revised, and reused indefinitely by individuals and communities across vast stretches of space and time.
