Abbas Akhavan (b. 1977, Tehran, Iran), Variations on Ghost, 2017/2018. This monumental sculpture makes reference to artworks destroyed by ISIS over the last decade, in particular the ancient sculptures depicting the Assyrian protective deities called Lamassu – half man, half lion. Using a technique called ‘dirt ramming’ Akhavan has recreated the claws of the hybrid deity with soil and water. Over the exhibition period, the physical appearance and smell of the sculpture will change, its surface appearing more stone-like as a grey crust develops. @liverpoolbiennial #liverpoolbiennial #abbasakhavan @abbasakhavan

#AbbasAkhavan sculpted a block of styrofoam into two life size swans fighting. The swans necks are tangled, and when this happens in nature, they can’t untangle and often die together. Or one survives.

Just like that, lights are out on our Summer 2018 season! Thank you to everyone who visited the gallery and enjoyed the exhibitions by Ellen Gallagher, Grada Kilomba and Abbas Akhavan.

We are back 15 September, 2018 with Beth Stuart’s Length, Breadth, Thickness and—Duration, the continuation of Abbas Akhavan’s variations on a landscape and the RBC Painting Competition 2018!
