The Estate of Chant Avedissian

Chant Avedissian

Sederi (Vest) , 1990

Hand-dyed cotton. 78 × 78 cm.
Avedissian dyed cotton fabrics employing the same techniques used to make the textiles that decorate nomad tents in the desert or to compose Japanese kimonos. His textile works are not a mere reproduction of elements found in popular traditions or geometric compositions but quite the opposite, thanks to the in-depth understanding of his artistic practice, his works can be understood and read as an affirmation of his an own Egyptian identity as well as the uniqueness coming from a collective and universal heritage, that goes beyond all borders: an Eastern identity standing up to Western supremacy.
