This series is an alternative discourse where the war will be considered from a different perspective that reveals not the political, economic or social consequences but the traces of the conflict along the line of contact.
- Edik Boghosian’s objects, in their turn, consist of remnants of the objects of the war, i.e., the consequences of war, which have undergone aesthetic revision. The object, losing both its function and its original appearance, enters the art space to present itself as a consequence of war. At the same time, it legitimizes its being in the art space with its status as a work of art. The latter becomes possible due to the author’s intention and the actions that follow. The author selects the pieces, arranges and compares them, modifies their shape. Artist’s main task, in this case, is to put the elements of the object in a relationship with each other. This allows the objects to be living units continuing their lives in an alternate way, and not be dead remnants of extinct life. Yelena Aydinyan, art historian & art critic
