Publisher's Description

'[…] As a kind of visual poetry (fixed and in motion) and with subtle reminiscences of refugees and displaced people around the world –and while questioning the viewer– Hamzehian and Mortarotti portray these inhabitants of the borders (and all their polysemic meanings) and in doing so place a current, sensitive and courageous topic in the horizons of contemporary art. It is a topic that neither the artists nor the art critics should omit, since our heavens are framed by ethics and poetics.' —Andrea Díaz Mattei

'Anush Hamzehian is the son of an Iranian refugee. He was conceived in 1979, the year of the Islamic Revolution, in Tabriz during the last journey his parents took to Iran.In March 2014, the artist duo decided to get the closest they could to the country. They stayed one month on the narrow border between Armenia and Iran investigating the claustrophobia and violence of this border town as a metaphor of all frontiers.
