Suchoža works by a method close to postmodern bricolage. A new, updated reading of archetypal cultural phenomena is achieved by the visual transformation of the space as well as the found object. It is based on a collective cultural memory with an emphasis on the current collapse of its values with a fatal social impact. The author’s artistic strategies are: a self-contained and (re-)interpreted space, a moving image with an emphasis on its brightness and pulsation, mirroring and sound as well as objects with reference to the absent body. The spiritual and socio-critical ideological dimension of his work is significant.
