“What is luck for you?” Interactive performance for “In Motion”

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.

Time-travel on the HAYP train: IN MOTION 2015

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.
