In 2006, artists Unni Gjertsen and Liv Strand embarked on a journey to Armenia – a land with idiosyncratic connections to ancient times and early Christianity, ambiguously situated somewhere in the southern region of the Caucasus. In the origins of the journey were questions on nationalisms and their relation to memory and the mediatory body between them.
The exhibition Tales of Fraternity, Power and Time -The Armenia Project at 0047 delves into the relationship between imagination and territory. By positioning the visitor concurrently as the viewer and the constructor of a forever-changing landscape, the exhibition aims to reflect on the strategies at work in the early construction of nation-states which are still at play within Europe’s current political situation.
