“Exbroideries” is an analytic art installation by Anita Toutikian at Badguèr in Bourj Hammoud.
During one of her visits to see her family living in Istanbul, Toutikian came across an embroidery done by her grandmother Hripsime Sarkissian (1908 – 2000). She picked up the colorful yet old and left out tissue without any clear intention. In the years that followed, Toutikian continued to collect more of her grandma’s works.
After gathering these special embroideries, Toutikian noticed her grandma’s unintentional artistry in these “brut” informal artworks.
Today, the artist is performing a curatorial and analytic art installation using the embroideries she collected… It is an “exbroideries” of the ready-made and intimate objects she has.
I attended the inauguration, and the launch of the program “I am and I can”.
The exhibition runs until May 18, 2014 from 4 pm to 8 pm. Don’t Miss It!
