Mai-Thu Perret produced a new work for inclusion in the group show Cellular World: Cyborg-Human-Avatar-Horror. The works on show explored questions of identity and individual and collective consciousness at a time of prolific social change and uncertainty, when reality can often seem more like science fiction. The piece was a life-size mannequin-like reclining figure, made from a mix of materials such as papier-mâché, wicker, ceramic, silicone, and metal. This type of work is a consistent trope within her oeuvre, and reflects her concerns with an eclectic concoction of fact and fiction, avant-garde aesthetics and radical feminist politics.
