Mai-Thu Perret: The Adding Machine [includes VINYL]

£50.00

Product description

In the spring of 2011 the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Aarau, Switzerland mounted a major solo exhibition of Swiss artist Mai-Thu Perret. The exhibition, which incorporated sculpture, installation, painting, video and performance as well as text-based work, was the most comprehensive presentation to date of this internationally renowned artist. This book, (which accompanied the exhibition, with a list price of €120) includes essays by Madeleine Schuppli and Diedrich Diederichsen, in three languages (French, German and English) and an exclusive vinyl record produced by Mai-Thu Perret in collaboration with singer Tamara Barnett-Herrin.

Mai-Thu Perret (b. 1976 in Geneva) is a Swiss artist of Franco-Vietnamese origin. Perret's work is multidisciplinary, installation-based, and performative, combining feminist politics with literary texts, homemade crafts and 20th century avant-garde aesthetics.

Our book is in 'as new' condition, with only minimal rubbing of the corners and spine of the card cover. Vinyl record included.
