I remember birds and stones

Hay Art Cultural Center, Yerevan, Armenia
March 17 – April 15, 2022

Utopian spaces, ideal cities and actual urban planning interweave in the works of Astrid Busch and show an interplay of vision and reality, achievement and failure. The result is a field of tension of atmospheric and architectural, indeterminacy and firmly built composition.The artist references the architecture of Martin Mikaelyan and Oscar Niemeyer, overwriting historical images and found objects with her own photographic work. Conceived for the HayArt Cultural Center in Yerevan, the works were created in the context of the artist’s research on planned cities and refer to the two cities built in the 1960s, Mezamor in Armenia and Brasilia in Brazil.
