Artist: Hakob Hakobian
Title: Homage to Hrant Dink, 2007
Location: Artist' Union of Armenia, Yerevan
Hakob Hakobyan expressed the secret attack of the evil spirit on the peaceful, defenseless creature by two symbols: black cat and white dove. As it happened in 1915 when the Armenians were subjected to massacre by the Ottoman Empire, the series of these barbaric acts continue to these day, such as the murder of the famous Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink by the Turkish nationalist.
Hrant Dink said: "There are some Turkish people who don’t admit that fact that their ancestors executed Genocide. But, if we look, we’ll understand that these people leave a false impression of kind and pleasant people… However, why can’t they admit the fact of Genocide? It’s because, they know that Genocide is a bad thing and they would have never wish to do that and that’s why they can’t believe that their ancestors could have done anything like that."
