1 - Marcel Duchamp Prize
For his exhibition “Under Shadows” Melik Ohanian proposes a cosmic scenario halfway between poetry and science. He sets up an environment in which different dimensions are expressed, from the infinitely small to the infinitely large: two extremes where objects in the world around us fade into the background for the period of the exhibition.
The central work in this environment, Modelling Poetry, is inspired by a scientific conjecture announced by NASA, forecasting the collision of the Milky Way with the Andromeda Galaxy in four billion years’ time.
