Menq Enq Mer Sarere, Orpheus Standing Alone

€28.00
DESCRIPTION

Menq Enq Mer Sarere (We Are Our Mountains) borrows its name from a film directed by Henrik Malian in 1969.

Collages, photographs, poems intertwined seek a new way to think our memory - as something intrinsic and ever-lasting, a memory for which no recollection is necessary. This book hopes to lend its readers a modern and creative lens to look through and grasp glimpses of the ever so rich a powerful Armenian culture, bringing traditional references and contemporary visuals in harmony. Constructed as an exquisite corpse, the book comprises various references and inspirations. Suddenly Magritte befriends Paradjanov, Tarkovsky mingles with Dada, Pirosmani chats to Cornell.

In the course of this project, the artists have based their thoughts and artworks on the vital importance of memory – whether it be national, communal, familial, or individual. Following this ‘guiding light’ so to speak, and not only do they determine who we are as beings, but also, and especially as artists.
