Les Étangs

Mai-Thu Perret
Le Portique – Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain du Havre, Le Havre, France
24 October – 19 December 2020

Known for her multi-disciplinary practice that engages installation, performance, sculpture, ceramics and textiles, Mai-Thu Perret derives inspiration from a range of twentieth-century avant-garde and radical art movements, including Dada, Constructivism and Bauhaus design. Occupying two floors of Le Portique, Mai-Thu’s solo exhibition Les Étangs is a presentation of new ceramics, patchworks and paper lanterns. Ten large ceramic pieces, evoking leaves of waterlilies, line the floor of the Portico, transforming the space into a vast imaginary body of water.
