From October 28 to November 1, HAYP Pop Up Gallery took over the Yerevan-Gyumri train with an art installation and a series of performances. One of those performances was an original project put together by Nairi Hakhverdi, titled “Literary train” (Stories from the 1920s).
Three weeks ago, an artist from Stuttgart decided to perform an unexpected artistic and social experiment on the Yerevan-Gyumri train. Barbara Karsh-Chaïeb had been doing an artist residency at AKOS for a little more than two weeks when she heard about HAYP Pop Up Gallery’s exhibition project on the train, and decided to get involved.

If you’ve been exploring the Armenian countryside, you probably already found yourself riding the train from Yerevan to Gyumri. Provided you’re not in a hurry to reach your destination, the 3-hour ride in itself is a mind-blowing travel experience. Sitting on the soviet-era wooden benches and enjoying the bucolic view always makes us feel like we’re time traveling.
