Hay-Art Center Yerevan Armenia mit TANJA KODLIN
Based on the performative research project GODOG 2021, which negotiates the otherness and coexistence of different entities, the artists Ramòn Graefenstein and Tanja Kodlin developed a text-and-body-based interaction with the building of Hay-Art Cultural Centre in Yerevan, Armenia.
The performance interacts with the architectural structure of the building and uses its different levels metaphorically as a place of negotiation of interpersonal and non-human relations and hierarchies.
"... From the very beginning, the museum was a utopian idea. The initiators had neither a building for their exposition, nor the resources to buy art-works. They had, however, something more important and valuable. They believe that it is indispensable for Armenia to see and understand the new image of its contemporary art…" (Alexander Kamenski, Russian art critic 1979).
