mirage(s) 3. Armenia

2006, in situ intervention (Museum of the Sisters Aslamazyan, Gyumri), fingerprints on glass, variable dimensions

In Paris as well as in Armenia, I asked several Armenians belonging to different generations to provide me with names, phrases, dates… anything that would evoke for them an absence, a memory, the idea of something that no longer exists in Armenia. Among the words I collected, I reproduced twenty four by stamping my fingertips on the glass surface of all the windows in the museum, with the help of templates. These ephemeral signs, subtle and almost invisible, are only “revealed” through a change of light or of perspective.
