Psychoanalysis and Art: ‘The Other in the Work of Mekhitar Garabedian’

Mekhitar Garabedian is a young Belgian-Syrian artist (born in 1977) with whom I have been working for several years now. His multi-media art (installations, performances, photography…) questions the themes of identity, the migrant, memory and language and will be commented on starting from the analogy between the process of subjectivation and the process of creation.
