----
A line is a very elemental entity. Agop explores various situations where lines emerge from different compact forms, seeking the outside world. Sharp lines appear, cutting through space. Less sharp lines are vague apparitions initiating outer contact. Although these forms are quite compact and contained, the emerging lines have an optimistic presence, suggesting growth and expansion.
Agop describes his obsessive process as a meditative practice, a rituality which seeks an interior cosmos and explores a spacial depth. Observing and re-observing a line, sculpting it and re-sculpting it, each time discovering a new way of being and a different dimension of existence.

La ligne est une entité elémentaire. Armen Agop explore les diverses situations dans lesquelles une ligne surgit d'une forme, à la rencontre du monde extérieur. Des lignes aiguisées émergent, découpant l'espace. D'autres moins acérées, font une discrète apparition ouvrant la possibilité d'un contact externe. Malgré leur forme compacte, les sculptures recèlent des traits semblant prêts à s'affirmer, avec une présence optimiste suggérant croissance et expansion.
Agop décrit son processus de création obssessionnel comme une pratique méditative. Observant et ré-observant une ligne, la sculptant et la re-sculptant, découvrant à chaque création une nouvelle façon d'être et une dimension différente.

Armen Agop wins the Umberto Mastroianni 2010 Award

The 7th International Sculpture Biennale of Piemonte awarded Armen Agop first prize on 30 October 2010. The competition, organized by the Piemontese Arte Association, is by invite only and recognizes some of the most important up and coming artists on the international scene. In addition to a cash prize, Agop's sculpture will be realized in the city of Barge next year.

The Umberto Mastroianni award began in 1994 in the region of Piemonte. Since then, every other year one of the Piemonte communities requests a specific location for a permanent art work. Agop's work with the work of Valerio Berrut and Arrianna Merlo/Guilia Nota was selected by a jury as finalists for the city park in Barge. The three projects were then exhibited with all other invited participants in one show and then the citizens of Barge voted on the winning project.
