Transfourming Sorrow: Centennial Commemoration Of the Armenian Genocide (1915-2015)

When: Saturdays. Continues through May 16 2015

A multimedia installation by artist Kardash Onnig, will pay tribute to the decimation of the Armenian population in Anatolian Turkey in 1915. It is also an invitation for people to mourn and transcend their grief and sorrow. Visitors enter the “Womb of Sorrow”, an acoustic sanctuary called a Mehian, and encounter four different auditory experiences. Also walk to “The Field of Transfourmation”, an enclosure of fourteen panels each dedicated to a transference the artist had with others throughout his life.
