The focus of Vartan is not a city, as the concentration and accumulation of different objects, buildings, and topos, and the city as a symbolic space with which each person has to make contact.
The city is a complex system of functions, relations, meanings, structures which wittingly and unwittingly facing each falling into its orbit. The artist is not taken for tracking and identification – all of these phenomena are reduced and the brackets submitted, then as the main creative intention is directed to the identification of limit States for this dialog (in its extremes), when colliding with the sides going to yell and scream and hysteria infantile or quiet, happily accept each other's arms, indifferent, disagree. The artistic expression of these States was the images from one side of the station, roads and rails, and other plant, pipes and smoke.
Detecting and recognizing ourselves as part of the urban whole, everyone understands that this is an urban one – is not an empty space in which are placed some things, but a living topos with its mythology, with his face and tongue. Work Vartan remind you that a dialogue with such complex and extensive organism – this conversation is not equal. The city, leaves fingerprints on the travelers, recycles its inhabitants, assimilates. He is able to engulf you, leaving only a shadow, the outline of the smoke.
What then? – Station and escape? But is there any where?
The performative response of the artist to his own work. Only through the aesthetic discourse can penetrate to the essence of the city, which was also revealed and expressed in the work of art. To protect yourself and speak with the city on equal terms is possible, but only in the language of art.
