Marguerite Perret is a multimedia installation artist who explores issue-based, interdisciplinary connections between art, science, and medicine. She collaborates with artists, scientists, writers, public agencies, museums, and healthcare professionals. Perret has exhibited widely and completed several large-scale, site-specific temporary public art commissions. Artist residencies and project grants have supported Perret in her international travels wherein she documents natural history and medical museum collections as part of an ongoing project that explores the specimen/artifact as a product of how humans represent and consume nature and our bodies.
Currently, Perret is an associate professor of art and design at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas where she teaches digital imaging, foundations design, art and ecology, and science and art.
