“Moon that has fallen from the sky” project represents a several screens video installation. The title of the project is linked to an old Hittites myth which transfers the idea of gods’ self-sacrifice for humans. Starting from worship to God Ara in immemorial times in the Armenian palette up until Christianity, this repeatedly appearing topic acts as a reminder of the importance of life and its maintenance, a lone victory over death, which is also the most essential mission of art. The project “Moon that has fallen from the sky” represents a crisis or conflict of personality and social perceptions of a contemporary man. Relationships between artist’s body and water, air and speech, relationships formed by the interrelation of surface and texture will be represented in a range of images of “Moon that has fallen from the sky” as the juxtaposition of the political presence in the public life and philosophical perception, in the context of nowadays Armenia.
