"Everlasting layers" is one of Nairy Baghramian’s fragile-looking sculptures visibly needing support, with which one she formulates a clear rejection to the convention of the self-confident pose, the dominant setting, and the claim of the perpetual.

Nairy Baghramian is one of the most important sculptors of her generation. Starting mostly from the (fragmented) human body, she deals with the fundamental questions of art production: with the relationship between creation and reception, between image and framing, object and pedestal, for example, as well as with the use of material and the relationship to the everyday. In her artistic formal language, choice of materials and approach, equally close to post-minimalism as to conceptual art, the artist uses the potential of abstraction to negotiate complex issues and to find an aesthetic formal equivalent for them. Baghramian herself speaks of "ambivalent abstraction".
