First there was this catalogue that struck me. It was the Thieme Art published catalogue from 2008 to commemorate the winning of the Thieme Art price by Sargsyan. The title is THE TOUCHING and the art shown in this publication is totally original, Fragil paper and aluminium sculpturen build with this layers of material into moving figures. Their actions seems to be frozen to be captured by the artist. This is not the kind of art you would present in your living room, but fill a museum with these figures and you will be amazed with every corner you turn and encounter a new composition of almost true life action figures.

Karen Sargsyan’s sculptural installations are made of paper aluminium and refer to the materials’ importance in the history of international communication. His sculptures personally materialize history, characters, events, and nature through this simple material.
