Sayat Nova, the colour of pomegranate, the movie by Paradjanov on the medieval Armenian poet Sayat Nova, opens new artistic perspectives: time is expressed by space, its continuity by the juxtaposition of images, a pictorial thought composed by miniatures and frescoes is revealed, an impossible and yet alive synthesis of the symmetries of Persian art, of orthodox iconography devoid of perspective and of Paradjanov’s surrealistic collages.
Exploring the singular resources of this movie, we will try to extract from it drawings, to create an imaginary material that corresponds, according to Daney, to "the art of staying close to elements, materials, colours and textures.”
