Short Stories

 

The video work "Short Stories" was recorded during a trip I made to the disputed Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh in September 2013:
Boxing training in the capital Stepanakert, burnt Azeri tanks from the Nagorno-Karabakh War*, ruined city of Aghdam near the front line between Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan, a theological conversation and an opera aria outside the Opera House in Yerevan.

 

 

*The Nagorno-Karabakh War  referred to as the Artsakh Liberation War, was an ethnic conflict that  took place in the late 1980s to May 1994, in the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh in southwestern Azerbaijan, between the majority ethnic Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh backed by the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan.
