    • Nameless


      from Armenoui Kasparian Saraidairi Added 18 0 0

      Nameless is an 8mm film that I manually created in the darkroom by isolating and exposing close up portraits from group pictures from my family archive. It draws on the methodologies from photographic practice and filmmaking, as I worked in the darkroom creating what I have titled a camera-less film. Through repetitive exposures I manually replaced the work of a video-camera and drew attention to each individual. My family was part of the larger movement of the Armenian populations that experienced the massacres and mass deportations from their historic homeland. As they walked in exile from their homeland and yearned for the beginning of a new future, our family photographic collection started coming into shape. The creation of the Nameless was devised in response to the voids of memory and knowledge within my family archive. In a large number of pictures, in larger or smaller group pictures, portraits and snapshots appear unrecognisable faces. Remaining nameless evokes a loss of identity and as Nancy Martha West (2008, 85) suggests, ‘if we posit a correlation between naming and being, then the nameless in a sense don’t exist’. At the same time the idea of being nameless relates to the moral scandal of the anonymity of victims of genocide. Michael Ignatieff (1998) writes there is a ‘universal need to redeem the dead through memory’. In that sense Nameless creates an analogy between the loss of singularity in a photographic archive and through the mass killings. It attempts to restore their facelessness by offering each individual a single frame and a few seconds on the screen. This is part of my Doctoral Research at Central Saint Martins, UAL.

            These archival images from the Library of Congress are a great starting point for appreciating the women's suffrage movement in the United States. This represents only a fraction of what's out there, but it's a start, and one that illustrates the extraordinary effort invested in this 72-year struggle for equality. SuffrageCentennials.com's series on preparing for upcoming suffrage centennial celebrations focuses on places to go and information to acquire.
