“The world rearranges itself around you” Panel discussion with Timotheus Vermeulen, Noemi Smolik, Nav Haq and Diango Hernández NADA Lounge - Art Cologne - Thursday, April 16, 2015, 5:30pm

In his novel 10:04 Ben Lerner construes scenarios in which suddenly, unexpectedly, “the world rearranges itself around you”. The illness of a close friend, a chance meeting, a picture in a newspaper; from one moment to the next, the world’s elements are reshuffled, closing some ways, whilst opening up different paths…

Galerie Barbara Thumm presents Diango Hernández at SP-ARTE Open Plan, curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti 9th of April - 10th of April 2015

In terms of art history, Hernández refers back to the Romantic period, projecting its perspectives onto the recent history of his country. Like mediaeval ruins, charged with meaning in the Romantic period, he sees the unfinished buildings and ruins of progress…

Did I forget to mention of the flying ducks printed on the table cloth? The flying ducks together with the ‘hurricanes’ shape the narrative of this wall installation. I have amplified hurricanes from my living room while wild ducks were flying in silence…

It’s difficult to say for me whether these pictures are really the product of a couple of days, weeks or years of cutting and pasting by Haussman. They might be. Perhaps they are not. The point is that it doesn’t matter. Not necessarily. It matters if you measure the value of art as…

The history of lies is far more interesting than the history of truths. What would happen if one day all lies become the new truths? Unfortunately this is neither a supposition nor a prediction, in fact it seems to be our present…

Lonelyfingers is happy to announce the opening of a workspace dedicated to presentations, conversations and workshops. The function of lonelyfingers workspace is precisely that of bringing transparency into the artist’s creative space. In Under the glass bell Anaïs Nin wrote “We (…) belong to the Middle Ages. We have this need of heroism, and there is no place for such feelings in modern life. That is our tragedy. Once I wanted to be a saint. It seemed the only absolute act left to do, for what is most powerful in me is the craving for purity, greatness.” At this moment the glass bell is the object that guides us in this new beginning. We will let you see, through a transparent glass, almost invisible, that matter that exist only ‘inside’, that body of ideas and things apparently absent…

…By degrees, Hernández began to contrast his individuality and subjectivity with everything which he had experienced during his socialisation as the impositions of a dominant collective. The individuality of one versus the collective of many is consequently the subtext that…

Commemorating Hurricanes Salon 2014 / 2015 Jahresgaben-Ausstellung, Kunstverein Nürnberg, Germany

Diango Hernández (*1970, Sancti Spìritus, Kuba; lebt in Düsseldorf) hat im Kunstverein Nürnberg dieses Jahr die Einzelausstellung „In hazard, translated“ präsentiert. In dieser hat er skulpturale Assemblagen ausgelegt, die sich mit einer vielschichtigen Lesbarkeit von Geschichte beschäftigen. Ausgehend von dem historischen Ereignis eines Hurrikans, der 1932 die Südostküste Kubas zerstört hat, entwickelte er eigene bildliche Übersetzungen, um einen differenzierten Blick auf die gegenwärtige Situation in seinem Heimatland sowie in Europa zu werfen.
