“Left over, left behind”, even though they do not sound appealing, these are the most accurate terms which can be used to describe the last remnants on the Armenian plateau today, 100 years after the genocide. The exhibition consists of documentation of buildings left behind by Armenians, whose culture has been turned into a ghost in their own land after a century, as well as interviews conducted over a course of two years with hundreds of people in 27 provinces located on the exile route in order to better reflect the psychology, thoughts, concerns and memories of those left over. The exhibition tries to express what has happened since 1915 through the remaining bits of memories, the recollections of neighbours, “savers”, perpetuators and hiders.
The project team followed the route of the exile looking for traces of Armenians in the cities they visited. Some of these traces, treasure maps, myths, ornate keys of Armenian homes sold over at vintage shops, saved family trees etc. will also be displayed.
The data collected during the journeys is put together in a website (www.artakalan.net) using digital mapping, multimedia, journalism and graphic design. The visuals have also been compiled to be published in the form of a book of travels.
