About This Artwork

These works are part of the series: "Aqui é mais do que o vírus" [Here is more than the virus]. Series that has been developed during the covid-19 quarantine since April, 2020. Far from the studio, with the lack of materials, the development process of the works happened with the small pieces of the only fabric I had at hand. From the pieces of fabrics, I started creating small objects, which fit in the palm of the hand, produced in the form of masks. The process of embroidering using my hair, recurrent in previous works (since 1998), here is an essential part of the whole process and the concept of the work: body, skin, DNA. In Brazil, this series carries our collective devastated feelings in the face of the seriousness of the pandemic, at the same time as a government that from the beginning acted irresponsibly and with serious indications of crimes against humanity. From the beginning, when I heard about Artsak and the conflict again, I thought I could unite the two screams: from the people of my ancestral origin and from the people of my homeland. In these two pieces it has the same scream (Genocide never again). One happens in Brazil regarding the continued genocide of blacks and indigenous people (in the piece with Portuguese/ Brazilian idiom). And the other, the scream of the Armenian people in Artsak, for a no to the new genocide (in the piece in Armenian idiom / alphabet).

  • About Rosana Palazyan

    Rosana Palazyan was born in 1963, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she lives and works.

    She graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from Universida de Gama Filho / RJ (1986) and studied arts at the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage / RJ (1988 - 1992). Her work configures a variety of media (embroidery, design, installation, performance, video, public art). It promotes experiences and reflections on art, life and society in a listening process, especially with those who are socially excluded. Symbolic exchanges established at the meetings are transformed into works that delicately propose to amplify the voice of these people and sensitize the public’s relation to their issues. 

    Rosana Palazyan has participated in the 56th Venice International Biennial of Art (2015) for the National Pavilion of the Republic of Armenia, awarded the Golden Lion for Best National Pavilion.

    Solo exhibitions include: Casa França Brasil, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, (2010); Centro Cultural Banco Brasil, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2004); Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico (2000). Group exhibitions include: O Rio dos Navegantes, Museu de Arte do Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2019-20); The 4th Thessaloniki Biennale, Greece (2013-14); The Street, MHKA, Antwerp, Belgium (2011); Pretty Tough: Contemporary Storytelling, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT, USA (2009); 26th Sao Paulo International Biennial, Brazil (2004).
