Zarouhie Abdalian is known for her site-specific sculptures and installations. Born and raised in New Orleans, she is particularly attentive to the ways in which historical processes are embedded in physical transformations of spaces. This publication, conceived in conjunction with a show of the artist’s work in Los Angeles, features Abdalian’s ‘brunt’, a series of seven sculptures comprised of various tools and tool heads, each of which is presented atop a white gallery pedestal. The objects seem frozen in a dialectical moment, alternately tools aspiring to be images and images aspiring to the status of tools. With a text by Tara McDowell and an afterword by Joseph Rosenzweig.
