blueprint for a genocide

February 2, 2015

I am working on a submission called Blueprint for a Genocide for an upcoming exhibition of Armenian-Canadians on the theme of genocide. Mine is a triptych representing the past, present and future.

 

I made dozens of rubbings of ancient stone carvings on my first visit to Armenia in 2008. Given the theme of this exhibition, it felt very natural to incorporate fragments of these rubbings in this triptych, to honor my heritage and history. I am finding that re-tracing the lines drawn by my ancestors, and embedding the rubbing fragments into a contemporary context is revealing unexpected layers to the work as it progresses. Stay tuned for my next post.
