Zarouhie Abdalian @ Pippy Houldsworth
10 February 2023 - 18 March 2023
Bells for Baku, London, Louisiana, is an exhibition by Zarouhie Abdalian, is a new body of work conceived especially for this exhibition, on themes related to the conditions of modern industrial production that continue to occupy the artist.
Abdalian turns her attention to heavy industry, to the massive accumulation of labour that confronts the workers exploited by the owners of Shell, Cargill, General Electric and BP, amongst others. As the exhibition title suggests, Abdalian’s bells – a recurring image in her work – are meant to ring out across the distance that separates the oilfields of Baku from the Port of South Louisiana, now joined together through modern commodity production.
