"Deir ez-Zor and Resurrection"
"Our ancestors were amazing people. They passed through hell, but never lost their humanity...."
For Armenians, Deir ez-Zor has a meaning similar to Auschwitz. It is an epicenter of death and systematic mass killing, a final destination in the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by Ottoman Turkey under the cover of World War I. Hundreds of thousands of Armenians in 1915 and 1916 marched through the desert to meet their death. Hundreds of thousands of innocent souls were resurrected to Heaven…
The scenes of the Genocide are depicted with the colors of pain and grief. Focusing on mark-making with lines, Mushegh Mkhitaryan works in layers that are added on top without completely hiding what's underneath - a horrible tragedy of an entire nation.
