Araks Sahakyan

What is collective memory? What is personal memory? Who determines the heritage of trauma?
Araks Sahakyan’s ingenocide is an audio-visual project composed of images taken at the frontier between Armenia and Turkey. The voice of the artist tells a story in an invented language accompanied by an original contemporary composition. 

Artistic Statement

The work is composed of images recorded during my trip to historical places such as Ani, Van and Akhtamar Island in Western Armenia.
