Viken Arman and Goldcap - two of the most famous Armenian DJs out there - have rarely played together in general, and have never played together in Armenia. Rambalkoshe decided to fill that gap and invited everyone on September 29th of 2018 to 91 Teryan street, to an abandoned printing house, for a 9-hour music event set to also be joined by Almo. At the same time, Davit Yukhanyan's solo exhibition was there to take the guests to a whole different world of extraordinary characters. In short, the attendants were finding themselves somewhere between sound and image, trying to see the former and listen to the latter.
The event started with a special 1-hour classical music set by Viken Arman, during which, the place had the time to get full, and the attendants had the time to see the exhibition in the predisposed atmosphere.
Davit Yukhanyan's solo exhibition
Architect and illustrator Davit Yyukhanyan creates with a technical black pen on a 70 x 100 cm paper, detailed illustrations that depict the artist’s world and the one we live in, in a surrealist way. The drawings consist of different pieces in the form of small sketches that make part of a bigger one, coming together in one deeply rich image.
The concept behind the pieces is that of an illustration made of illustrations, referencing our material world that consists of different pieces that when put together, complete our reality.
Armen Miran and Patrick Khach are perhaps the only musicians with whom we’d be thrilled to arrange a second DZEN. This time, rugs by Megerian Carpets were all over the space, with the pattern enhancing the poster taken from one of those rugs. Along with the rugs, another exhibition was there for the guests, with posters created during the two years since Rambalkoshe was established for/by/with Rambalkoshe, including works of 12 artists.
Rambalkoshe, being also a modern art museum, and from time to time working with wonderful artists in scopes of different projects, is endlessly proud for finally presenting the works of all of those artists in a unite exhibition at DZEN 0.2.
If you thought you have seen one of those all-seen-and-heard moments at the first or second Dzen events, here is the truth: we thought so too until lately. Stop what you are doing for a minute and try to imagine what happened at DZEN 0.3: Sainte Vie (live), Billy Caso (live), Vahagn Hayrapetyan (live), ALMO, and a completely new exhibition by Kupikazu. We had gone to great lengths to make that spring as unforgettable as possible.
DZEN 0.3 started with a special live set by Vahagn Hayrapetyan, perhaps one of the most well-known Armenian jazz pianists and composers. Billy Caso was the first to start the night after Vahagn’s set, followed by a live set by Sainte Vie, and ALMO till the sun raised.
?! New exhibition by KUPIKAZU
A completely new exhibition was presented during the event in the second hall of the venue with more than 200 new exhibits presented. Again, the happening was blending the guests somewhere between sound and shape.
