Armenian Deep sea fish is an audiowalk free to download. This work invites you to walk in the streets of Cihangir. Beginning at the door of the Cezayir building (in the Hayriye caddesi, behind the Galata Saray school), it takes 30 minutes and ends in the point of departure. Initiated as a continuation of the conversations and exchanges on rapprochement that began with the exhibition AFERIM YAVRUM, Little Gestures of cooperation (Istanbul 2010), the audio walk DEEP SEA FISH is part of an open-ended process that continues to build on the principle of dialogue. With this intervention, the artist Silvina Der-Meguerditchian hopes to grasp for a little while the evanescence of memory and to bring what is often perceived as remnants of the past back into the flow of everyday life. Deep Sea Fish aims to explore what happens when “ruins of memory” are reframed in a contemporary context and narrated in a contemporary language. The artist’s intention is to explore what kind of experiences and shared meanings might arise through this new “assemblage”
