Mary Parsamyan, a MA student of the Faculty of Art Education majoring in Fine Arts, recently participated in an international exhibition.
A total of 165 representatives from 19 countries participated in the 2nd International Triennale of mini-textiles “Treasure Island. City” held in St. Petersburg.
Each of the participants of the exhibition showed art lovers the past, present and the cherished future for their cities.
The ASPU students put on display a mini tapestry (“Yerevan at Night”) depicting the National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet after A. Spendiaryan - one of the symbols of the Armenian Capital. She says the appearance of the structure during the nighttime, its lights and colours convey the palette of the old city with all its charm.
The exhibition was unique in the sense that the participants had to present small-sized artworks. This allows an artist to experiment without limiting the possibilities of realizing the idea. Mary says this is a good idea for viewers as well: the author is able to convey his/her message even through a small piece of work.
Talking to aspu.am, the student said she had participated in various student exhibitions, but this was the first time she had participated in an international exhibition.
