"SOVIET PARTY" solo exhibition of Edgar Amroyan

October 2, 2009 - March 30, 2010



Very often in my childhood, sick and tired of the school and lessons, I used to take out the photographs of my parents’ and their friends’ parties from the shelf. I was inspecting them for hours, each time trying to find something new. The people in the images seemed very joyous and carefree, with the clothes and hairstyles reminding of the characters of hard to find Western European movies. The world of “adults’” appeared so ideal. And it seemed that one needs only to graduate from the school (so awful for many of us) in order to join the people in the photographs, to become a part of them. But the unpredictable hung over our generation…
Sometimes I think that we will never graduate from that damned “school”, and those carefree images will become real only in our dreams.
