Bitter Days

Milad Jahangiri

In Milad Jahangiri’s “Gods; Under Construction,” gods are not meant as creators, but are depicted as creatures in a place where there is no human presence; which is, nothing more than a deceptive beauty. The fate of these creatures ends in a tragic contradiction, as they move further away from liberating joy through countless reproductions. With a similar approach in his “Bitter Days” series, he portrays collective, eternal mourning, from which there seems to be no escape.
