Lala Abaddon
Through her intricate, woven works, Lala Abaddon seeks to explore the complexities, inconsistencies, and oscillations in relationships, both between images, and between people. Abbadon begins each work by pairing two photographs that are in dialogue with each other, and then cuts each into strips and weaves them together into one image. Through this meditative, obsessive process, Abbadon forces each to work with the other, and creates a viewing process where each image is seen, then obscured, and transformed by its partner.

Abaddon studied Sociology and Religion, and is an Artha Project alumni in New York City. She lives quietly between home studios in Brooklyn, NY and Syracuse, NY with her parrot, Poquito. She is honored to have donated work to auctions benefiting Slideluck and the Happy Hearts Foundation in 2014 and to be donating and volunteering for GirlsClubNY and the Baryshnikov Arts Center in 2016. In 2016 she also taught at the School of Visual Art in NYC and completed multiple residencies, including Long Road Projects in Jacksonville, FL and the Red Bull House of Art in Detroit, MI. She ended last year with over 15 group shows, multiple meta-performances, and two immersive exhibitions. With 2017 well underway, Lala has completed an immersive permanent installation at Facebook Headquarters in NYC, had her first museum exhibition at the Seligmann Art Center, and is focusing on refining her new body of work for a mind blowing exhibition during Armory Week in NYC, 2018.
