Zarouhie Abdalian (born 1982 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American artist of Armenian descent known for her site-specific sculptures and installations that are often located in public spaces, encouraging viewers to participate in and engage with their surroundings. Abdalian’s work responds directly to architectural and outdoor spaces, using sound, light, and various other natural forces to create subtle experiences that are open to multiple interpretations. She is particularly interested in the historical processes embedded within the physical transformation of spaces. She creates subtle sculptural and aural interventions in public space, altering viewers’ perceptions of familiar environments, often focusing on the features of a site that audiences experience elsewhere in their everyday lives. Her experimental sound pieces, at times made in collaboration with composer Joseph Rosenzweig, articulate features of the spaces in which they are installed, using resonance, vibrations, and other physical aspects of sound to alter the viewer/participant’s perception and awareness of the space.
