Breath

The exhibition "Breath" was a collaboration between Ardēan Design and forty students from TUMO Center for Creative Technologies under the leadership of architect Vasken Brudian. 

The title was derived from St. Gregory of Narek's Book of Lamentations. The exhibition featured a site-specific installation of about 120 hand-painted collages focusing on four themes; The Tangible and the Ethereal, Soul Invigorating Breath, Under a New Light, and Inspirit. 

The artworks included handwritten passages from the literature of 10th-century Armenian medieval poet and philosopher St. Gregory of Narek and the actual herbs written by Mkhitar Heratsi, a 12th-century physician and the father of Armenian medicine. These two men's works were the basis of the exhibition and concept; an attempt to reinvigorate the soul and the body.
