Samvel Vanoyan: Jumanji

SunChild 7th International Environmental Festival features award-winning movies about nature and environmental issues from all over the world, organizes “Lifehack” workshops, and “WOW!” exhibitions this year. The title reflects the essence of the project: conflict and coexistence of the human and the wild, subtly worded in the language of Art. Wild animals appear in an exaggerated urban landscape in Vanoyan’s works, becoming live symbols of contrast and juxtaposition. The artist directs viewers’ attention to the estrangement of human and nature, mirroring it in a grotesque drama of his photo collages. Come and see for yourself! Solo Exhibition The entrance is free.
