"As they are in Peri’s works, borders can be spaces of ‘un-saying’ (apophasis, beloved to the mystics), where human language falls silent. Instead of places where even humans are catalogued and segregated, they can be moments of free narrative invention. When the traveller flows inside the swerve that gives life to the universe and invents a new life for themselves. Where a person or an object, as in Peri’s drawings, holds a certain shape only until, seemingly impossibly, all of a sudden they flip over and become their own opposite.In Peri’s works, these metaphysical movements of the mind take on a mesmerizing range of visual clothes."

—  Federico Campagna, philosopher and writer.
