The leitmotif of
Chochola’s work is the revelation of a parallel world of magic and spells as
as the fascination with the points of contact with this world. Chochola’s history is inhabited by
shamans gods and demigods mediating the contact with the world outside our senses, anticipated but also rejected. The author puts himself into a similar position - into the role of shaman in parallel to role of postmodern artist - and reveals to us a more complex form of the human past.
