Site and Its Periphery
Zarouhie Abdalian’s sculptures and installations respond to the specific attributes of a given location, architectural setting, or social landscape. Often occurring at the threshold of perceptibility, these installations are meant to prompt a reevaluation of an existing physical site, or of the spatio-temporal constraints under which the art object is nominated as such. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Altman Siegel, San Francisco; Berkeley Art Museum; and Dillard University Art Gallery, New Orleans.
