Lenin, Remade In Hydra In Bucharest By The Romanian Artist Costin Ionita
This sculpture is inspired from one of Lenin’s statues placed in Bucharest during the communist period. The head is represented by seven roses. The rose is a powerful and political symbol from the communist time, when the same old politicians continued their work and ruled over the country. The artwork is a metaphor of the corrupt system in Romania.
“Art should be provocative, impressive, and monumental, made in such a way that even if you do not understand the message you should remember it,” says artist.
