4.7
#4 of 60 in Museums in Armenia
Browse through a lifetime of artwork at Parajanov Museum, documenting the life and work of one of the most renowned directors of 20th-century Soviet cinema. With over 600 items--250 of which are by Parajanov--the two-story museum features installations, assemblages, collages, drawings, and film sketches, including some pioneering 3D work and librettos produced during his prison term. Opened posthumously in 1991, the museum perches on the cliff of Hrazdan Gorge overlooking the city. Enjoy the panoramic view of Yerevan and ponder a bygone era of the Cold War in art.

  • On the last day of the stay came here on foot-Yerevan at all city where you can walk everywhere underfoot. The entrance is worth a penny, too. But made a wonder-hear the banal "you see how this unusually" near each of the creation of this paradoxical filmmaker and artist is too little. Definitely worth a visit. Embrace. Yes, and the place itself interesting-one view of what it is worth.

  • A delightful Museum. Sargis Ovsepi, Jan was the creator, artist and Director of Arthouse Cinema during Soviet times. Censorship responded with 40 to 80 on unusual creativity and unconventional opinion Director at the art of bad. In response, the creator responded sharply sovkovoj against censorship. Scoop planted Paradzhanjana in prisons and camps that would eventually be released in the mid-1980s, and allow the return to movie career. All this is reflected in the halls on two floors of the Museum. The Museum is filled with collages, illustrations, installations, sculptures of the creator. Parajanov did what I call "Visual sampling." When new art is created from another, old art. From snip Dzhakondy artist makes new 12 Dzhakond, each with a new meaning. From broken light bulbs, fragments, feathers, doll babies and old weights-3D paintings-installations. Broadcast on screens in the Museum landmark films by Paradzhanov and interviews with the Director. In a couple of rooms recreated interesting living rooms, impregnated with the spirit of the artist. Here you are inspired with a sense of imagination and understand that art cannot really stop, lock up or destroy.
