Science/Fiction—A Movie Studio Set, Ahead of Schedule, and Camera Shy, 1999, Installation view

Reflecting Perna’s interest in science fiction and utopian visions of society, this installation fictionalized the space of a science-fiction movie set in order to suspend, and perhaps momentarily reverse, assumptions of what is and isn’t fiction. The exhibition was made possible in part by the Instituto Italiano di Cultura, the cultural branch of the Italian Consulate General in Los Angeles, and the cultural office of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
