Vahram Aghasyan

° 1974

Born in Yerevan (AM), lives in Yerevan (AM).

Armenian artist Vahram Aghasyan focuses on cultural and historical processes taking place in his homeland. With photos, videos and installations, he predominantly examines architectural structures stemming from the former Soviet Union, which are now relieved of their functionality, in their present socio-political context. The artist’s interest in abandoned suburban landscapes is no accident, since here one can see examples of modernist architecture, which elicits pity, sadness and also sympathy, for the incompletion and absurdity of these non-functional structures bring them closer to art, and thus endow them with functionality.
