Présentation de l'éditeur :

"Menq Enq Mer Sarere (We Are Our Mountains) is a collection of works that chant an ode to memory. These works have purposely been produced in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide (1915 - 2015).

"Menq Enq Mer Sarere borrows its name from an Armenian film directed by Henrik Malian in 1969. Collages, photographs, poems intertwined seek a new way to think our memory - as something intrinsic and ever-lasting, a memory for which no recollection is necessary.

This book lends its reader a modern and creative lens to look through and grasp glimpses of a rich and powerful Armenian culture. These original and ambivalent works shine a new light onto «Armenity» bringing traditional references and contemporary visuals in harmony.
Constructed as an exquisite corpse, the book comprises diversed references and inspirations. Suddenly Magritte befriends Paradjanov, Tarkovsky mingles with Dada, Pirosmani chats to Cornell.

In the course of this project, we've based our thoughts on the vital importance of memory - whether it be national, communal, familial, or individual. We follow this «guiding light» so to speak, and not only do we determine who we are as beings, but also and especially as artists.

In this tremendously important year for Armenians all around the world and in a global climate whereby matters of identity lie in the heart of all societies, we are very proud to present Menq Enq Mer Sarere. "

Un travail riche, inspiré et émouvant sur "l'arménité" en cette année du centenaire du génocide arménien. Un très beau travail photographique et de collage où le texte joue bien sûr un rôle important.

Nous proposons également une version "Deluxe Box" de ce livre (cf. onglet "Suggestions") qui contient un poster, 4 cartes, un Polaroïd unique réalisé en 2015, et une poignée de terre ramassée en face du Mont Ararat.

NB : Les images d'illustrations sont issues du site des artistes.
