Armen AGOP

Armen AGOP

Dans un monde de l'art contemporain où la popularité réside dans une déclaration criarde, Armen Agop préfère la solidarité du silence. Quelque peu contre-culturelles dans leur pensée et leur principe, ses œuvres témoignent de ses valeurs fondamentales. Sévère et idéaliste, chaque pièce présente une sphère d'influence solide qui part d'un vortex inflexible et se prolonge jusqu'à un point optimiste. Il y a plus de silence que d'expression, mais il n'y a pas besoin d'exprimer. Il réside dans un monde de valeurs ascétiques et d'initiatives sincères où parler est excessif.
Agop lui-même préfère ne pas parler de son travail, disant plutôt qu'il partage une partie de sa vie avec une pièce et que lorsqu'elle est terminée, ce qui en ressort est une certaine façon d'être. Cet être a maintenant rendez-vous avec vous.
