MELIK OHANIAN, COSMO LOGO
MELIK OHANIAN

Born in 1969, Melik Ohanian lives and works in Paris; he completed his studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montpellier in 1990, and ENBA in Lyon in 1994. Using film and photography, Ohanian explores scientific, social, and cultural communities. While he begins with research and documentation (from star-gazers in Utah, to rap-enthusiasts outside of large cities), each project is ultimately realized in poetic, sculptural installations. Each of Ohanian??ôs works connects to the next like a constellation that describes who we are and how we interact. He has shown widely internationally and has participated in 3.Berlin Biennial, Reason Emotion in Sydney Biennial, and he was the French representation for the Sao Paulo Biennial in 2004. He was part of Dialectic of Hope, in the 2005 Moscow Biennial, and will be part of Experiencing Duration, in Lyon Biennial in 2005.
