For this exhibition, Perlman will physically alter The Renaissance Society's space by designing and installing walls, moldings, doors and door latches. These architectural necessities and foils will address the unique physical characteristics of the Renaissance Society space. Less directly, they will refer to notions of geometric regularity and rigidity, our human interaction with architectural structures, and the issues of clarity, representation, and design which are contained and questioned in the artist's photographs.
