The curator of the Pembroke Art Gallery Sarah Hegenbart with Meris  Ryan Goff organized the exhibition of his artworks, a variety of early  and recent paintings, etchings and an installation specially made for this  exhibition.

Part of this joyful event was the special performance of in Berlin-based  composer, Christoph D. Ostendorf who set to music a choice of Krikor's  poems and came to play himself on the piano accompanied by  Bass-Baritone, Florian Hille.
