HAYP POP UP ARMENIAN GALLERY IN YEREVAN #ANKAPITAL EXHIBITION
I am thrilled to share with you the photos of ANKAPital’s inauguration, HAYP’s current collective exhibit that opened with a bang last Friday, April 17 and that will continue to be on view until Monday April 27th. The turnout was incredible and the exhibit looked great (which seemed highly unlikely 48 hours earlier). Over 500 people attended the event throughout the course of the evening, thanks to our social media following and our central location that attracted a lot of foot-traffic.
CARBONE: HAYP RESIDENT ARTIST
Noumeda Carbone’s 6x4m wall painting “Unmapped 7” is stunning and profound: a web of intertwined vein-like forms spans across a weightless space, severed at the center. Like a butterfly split into two or a severed lung, the arterial shapes breathe both life and pain at once. “Unmapped 7” shows simultaneous connectivity and disconnect: Noumeda’s interpretation of the theme of HAYP’s exhibit “ANKAPital”, which takes a closer look at “ankaputyiun” (disconnected or non-sensical in Armenian). Carbone has been developing these “Unmapped” forms over the past few years, as seen in her wall painting from the 2012 Castro Street Art Project in Tel Aviv and in several live painting performances in Florence, Italy.
"I like to give myself limits” she tells me, “I’ll work with a single form or shape in repetition, and push myself to see how far I can take it. There’s a certain rhythm and multiplicity that comes out of limiting the elements with which I work, like color and shape, an almost obsessive multidimensionality. I am very inspired by nature and creating parallel spatial dimensions”.
And in fact, what I like the most about Noumeda’s work is her ability to create deep spatial dimensions despite her minimalist graphic style. Her work conveys a fine balance and harmony between the simple and the complex.
Noumeda’s work has been commissioned internationally, and her clients include VOGUE-TRENDS, Ferragamo, Leo Burnett, Pitti Immagine, The Guardian, Kult Magazine among others, and her works have been featured in Juxtapoz Magazine and Hi-Fructose. We are happy to say that now she can add HAYP Pop Up Gallery to her list of collaborators and Armenia to her list of international destinations! http://haypopup.wordpress.com/
