Mircea Suciu 'The Cry(2)' (2018)

Artwork Presentation

Mircea Suciu explores socio-political issues concerning the existential plight of humanity and its learned behaviors. In ‘The Cry (2)’, the figure with his face covered is Edward Teller—an individual who was responsible for the mass destruction caused by the nuclear bomb in WW2. Suciu juxtaposes this with a grotesque image of a mummy in ‘The Cry’—which symbolizes the collective effort by the Chachapoyans to preserve human life.
