According to the adopted tradition, on the occasion of Henrik Igityan's birthday anniversary, first time in Modern Art Museum we represent a new artist - Tigran Asatryan.
The exhibition brings together artists whose practices often withdraw from publicity to seclusive studios, practically hideaways, where a look into the past can establish inner dialogue and reintegrate the artist with the present. The routes of these searches diverge depending on geographical, political, economical and social realities, but the very fact of this searching unites them in a symbolic 'power nap', a short stop meant to replenish the strength to carry on.
