Most of Hovsepian’s films are recordings of simple, ordinary, seemingly meaningless human actions. Yawning, for instance, shows Hovsepian sitting on a chair, yawning for minutes on end. His approach is raw, direct and often humorous. As such, some of the actions verge on the absurd or are presented in an exaggerated way. By focusing on the basic actions of daily life, the artist searches for an estranged identity beyond the sphere of social or political life.
