For her second exhibition at Simon Lee Gallery in Hong Kong, Swiss artist Mai-Thu Perret presents installation works, ceramics, sculptures, textiles and performances that reference William Morris’ 1890 scifi novel of the same name, in which he imagines a utopian socialist society. Other sources of inspiration range from the Dadaist movement to Brazilian and Japanese architecture.
