Mekhitar Garabedian

Cropped-

Mekhitar Garabedian was born in Syria and is currently living in Belgium whilst his origin is Armenian. Within his oeuvre he interrogates processes of subject formation and the place of the individual in a contemporary world shaped by migration and diaspora. Deploying very diverse media he examines how the ruptures caused by migration continue to determine the present in a ‘hauntological’ way and how, linked to this, the linguistic realm structures our subjectivity and position in the world. In his researches, Garabedian questions the conceptual possibilities and potency of the work of art. Just as his personal diasporic history is layered, his work echoes with a multiplicity of references to literature, music, philosophy and visual arts.
