Diango Hernández: Beach, a longing, K21, Düsseldorf

Artist Info

Hernández’s artistic vocabulary is strongly marked by a yearning for his homeland, for its shoreline, for the local fruits and his mother tongue. He transforms Fidel Castro’s rambling speeches into a novel form of visual expression: words become waves, which in turn become an ocean consisting of blue symbols. The idea of the homeland – as ideological construct and place of longing – generates the axes of memory, the reservoirs of energy, and the perpetual mobiles that propel Hernández artistic production.
