A film-essay delving into the memories of war and their enduring omnipresence that appears never-ending. Drawing upon personal and autobiographical considerations, the movie follows the imprints left by the experience of war. With the persistent emergence of new violent conflicts, they continue to exert a lasting influence on one’s emotional realm and familial bonds.
Gor Margaryan is a freelance artist and currently heads the media workshop at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts in Kiel. The focus of his artistic work lies in experimental film and media art, moving at the interface between art and new technology.
Current works deal with human influences on our natural spaces, such as the destruction of the Amazon rainforest or the Siberian taiga. The aim of these projects is to show the viewer the aesthetics and beauty that are lost through this negative human influence. The focus of Margaryan's work is always on people: they form both the starting point and the fixed point of his artistic explorations. In his films, installations and publications, this becomes clear in his recourse to man as a source of inspiration as well as a guide.
