Hulk TRAIN 01In this piece, Marussiac considers the question of contemporary culture and relationships between big world heroes. The installation, HULK TRAIN 01, is formed as a modern altar. Roles of heroes are changing, and Hulk is a symbolic role guardian of Jesus Christ. Hulk rides the toy train and holds the crucifix as a sign of protection against evil. The main music theme is an old christian hymn, “Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!.” This hymn was chosen because it may be interpreted as Christian message.Marussiac has stated that he does not want to offend anyone; the artwork should be understood as critical view of the world.
