This artist’s first monograph brings together sketches, documentation and installation shots, as well as an in-depth analysis of her practice.

The Other Side of Silence is the first monograph of the artist Hrair Sarkissian—one of the leading figures working with photography globally today. This cerebral book of multi-disciplinary essays and images explores histories of disappearance, the architecture of violence, and the potential of the medium of photography itself. While encompassing the moving image, sculpture, sound, and installation, Sarkissian’s practice is rooted in his photographs. His lifelong use of a large-format camera relates to the artist’s interest in the role that chance plays in capturing hidden narratives of conflict, trauma, and displacement. Acting as an archaeologist and a storyteller, the artist draws upon personal and collective memory to reveal stories that official records cannot tell. The viewer is invited to consider the formal aspects of the image, to breathe in its silence and to interrogate what might live beneath its surface. This monograph accompanies Hrair Sarkissian’s eponymous touring exhibition organized by Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; the Bonnefanten, Maastricht; and Sharjah Art Foundation.
Born 1973 in Damascus, Syria, Hrair Sarkissian gained his foundational training at his father’s photographic studio in Damascus. In 2010 he completed a BFA in photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. He lives and works in London.
