Imagination and Diversity
Students from Sculpture department in searches
Works of SAFAA 4th year students of Sculpture department of Fine Arts faculty shown in “Albert and Tove Boyajian” exhibition hall embody fascinating approach of creative imagination. The exhibition, as sculptor Garegin Davtyan described was distinguished by its diversity, where one could particularly notice the search of something new. The attention was especially captured by the means of expression of emotional states (“Pondering”, “Nightmare”, “Strangeness”), manifestation of imaginative feelings (“Talk of the God of Stones and Snake”, “Hanger”).
“Looking at these works, I can see thought, taste, expression; there are many possibilities”, Aram Isabekyan spoke so at the opening of the exhibition. “After graduation the students are given an opportunity to place monuments in the city, in some cases they don’t succeed; they should practice on making monumental works. Why I say so? Because I look at these works and I am filled with joy, these are really wonderful works and I appreciate it”.
Head of Sculpture chair Getik Baghdasaryan also congratulated the students for such successful works. He noted that it was equally important for the students not only to introduce their works to the public but also to hold public discussions on them.
Hovhannes Baghdasaryan, one of the participants of the exhibition, carved a marble bust in memory of a hero soldier Adam Sahakyan who died in April war, 2016, and dedicated to his family. Khachatur Sahakyan, the father of heroically fallen young man, being present at the exhibition, thanked the audience and the author for their attitude and the precious gift. He told that a school named after Adam Sahakyan would open in Kashatagh the other day.
