The author of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, is believed to say "Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar." In the art of modern painter and photographer Emi Makida (b. 1991), the cigar is always a phallus. Makida's images show life and death, two powers ruling the world, which are depicted as phallic eruptions followed by corruption. The pictures of dismembered corpses, embodying death and accomplished in a manner looking like a mix of Shunga and Max Ernst and Zdzisław Beksiński, adjoin the dozens of flourishing phalluses that remind us of various pagan cults.
