Louisa Stylianidi & Pablo Rodriguez Blanco [Goldsmiths MFA takeover] - and the hippos were boiled in their tanks

Part of Goldsmtih’s MFA Curating takeover of Chisenhale Studios, Dot Jia presents work by Louisa Stylianidi and Pablo Rodriguez Blanco.

And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks (1945) is a novel by Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. The title is after an absurd line from a radio bulletin about a circus fire.

The eponymous project is an accumulation of several narrative threads that take the format of a duo exhibition between artists Louisa Stylianidi and Pablo Rodriguez Blanco. Together their works investigate the politics of storytelling while incorporating both verbal and visual mediums.
