*ᗅᗺᗷᗅ REVOLUTION*

ABBA Revolution Installation

Artist Statement from Installation:
“ᗅᗺᗷᗅ REVOLUTION re-imagines the famous Swedish pop group ᗅᗺᗷᗅ as political heroes. The artwork examines ways that marketing co-opts and commodifies narratives of revolution and materializes these decontextualized histories through fashion and popular culture. ᗅᗺᗷᗅ REVOLUTION thus also questions the possibility of authentic history.”
Info:

"ᗅᗺᗷᗅ REVOLUTION". Four silkscreened medium t-shirts (Benny, Bjorn, Anni-Frid, Agnetha) and artist statement. 2016.


The “ᗅᗺᗷᗅ REVOLUTION” installation was part of an exhibition called ABBRVTN, the theme of which explored “what is lost through abbreviation”. I pretended that I misunderstood that the show title was short for “ABBA REVOLUTION”.
Made for the exhibition "ABBRTN", curated by Courtney Cross and Alyssa Bralower, at Figure One Gallery, Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA.
