The Stakan Dilemma
by Lilit Minasyan, in an atelier led by Hassan Zahreddine

An aspiring leader will face challenges from hierarchy and social constraints. It’s a timeless reality, curbing ambition like hands bound together and corralling people towards uniformity like a throng of hands extended in one direction.

The phenomenon was embodied by Soviet-era Stakan drinking glasses, whose value was determined by the number of its facets. Traditionally, glasses were made with up to twenty such facets. In life, as with Stakan, the more facets on a glass, the higher the value or standing in society.

Number of prints: 7, numbered and signed by the artist
Dimensions: 25 x 38 cm
Number of glasses: 6
