The exhibition "Breath" was a collaboration between Ardēan Design and 40 students from TUMO Center for Creative Technologies under the leadership of architect Vasken Brudian.
The title derived from St. Gregory of Narek's "Book of Lamentation." 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 include handwritten passages from the literature of 10th- century Armenian medieval poet and philosopher St. Gregory of Narek and the actual herbs utilized by Mkhitar Heratsi, a 12th-century physician and the father of Armenian medicine. These works together are the basis of the compositions; one attempting to reinvigorate the soul, the other- the body.
