Nairy Baghramian employs styles and motifs taken from the history of sculpture. In addition, she draws on a wide spectrum, from design through fashion to anatomy.

By blurring the differences between decorative and functional objects, industrial and handmade products and everyday merchandise and luxury articles, Baghramian questions the position and function of art.
