Armenoui Kasparian Saraidari investigates found photographic material from family albums that bares witness to the Armenian experience of Diaspora. The Survivors is an installation piece that consists of 7 inkjet prints of life-size human figures.

Every figure has been cut out of black and white images found in her family’s archive from the time they fled the mass killings of the Armenian Genocide in 1915-16. The Survivors suggest how a family archive can serve as both a personal and a collective source of memory.

Saraidari completed a Masters Degree in Photography at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in 2013 and is currently studying for an AHRC funded PhD at Central Saint Martins.
