Neil Pardington - The Abattoir

12 October – 25 October 2011

{Suite} Gallery is pleased to present works from Neil Pardington’s latest series The Abattoir. Shot in his typical 4 x 5 format, Pardington presents photographs that are impeccably composed and full of detail, light and colour. From the place of electrocution (Abattoir#2), through lamb and beef chains to the packing room (Abattoir#10), everything is clean and shiny, but at rest. They are images of the steel environment that dominates the primary processing of New Zealand’s agricultural sector.

The New Zealand red meat industry comprises approximately 14,000 commercial sheep, beef cattle and deer farms, and around 80 processing plants. Each year approximately 1.1 million tonnes of red meat export product worth NZ$5.7 billion is sent to over 120 markets. This represents 14% of New Zealand’s total merchandise exports and 26% of primary sector exports.

Born 1962 in Devonport, New Zealand, Neil Pardington lives and works in Wellington, New Zealand. Of Ngai Tahu, Kati Mamoe, Kati Waewae and Pakeha descent, Pardington holds a BFA from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

The artist’s major touring exhibition “The Vault: Neil Pardington” is currently on show at the Rotorua Museum of Art & History, Rotorua, New Zealand. Pardington’s work is held in, amongst others, the collections of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Christchurch Art Gallery, Te Puna o Waiwhetu, New Zealand and Hocken Collections, Dunedin, New Zealand.
