Chicken Hands: Photographs by Ryan Arbilo
April 25 - June 17, 2017
3/F Cone Room

Chicken Hands
highlights the black-and-white images of Paris-based photographer Ryan Arbilo. Since 2009, Arbilo has been photographing Filipino housemaids who have been working in France for many years. These women use their hands as their only tool. Hands which, damaged by housework, look like chicken feet.

The housemaids’ faces are also marked by the hardships they endure, living in a country where they are unfamiliar with the language and customs. Arbilo’s aim is to "give expression to their silence, their fatigue, and their solitude through their sole means of survival: their hands."
