DIANGO HERNÁNDEZ and ANNE PÖHLMANN
29 July – 25 August 2017
Based on their latest travel experiences, the two Düsseldorf-based artists Anne Pöhlmann (*1978 in Dresden) and Diango Hernández ('*1970 in Cuba) have developed an exhibition for the long window display of the Dortmunder Kunstverein.
Like two sides of the same coin, the two positions complement each other. Akin to a visual diary, Anne Pöhlmann's series of printed textile panels takes us along on her first journey to Japan. With composed snapshots of every day situations and famous motifs such as Mount Fuji, her series Japan Diary moves closer to this foreign culture. In doing so, the medium of photography allows for an adaptation of the new surroundings.
Diango Hernández, on the other hand, confronts the familiar landscapes of Cuba with the demeanour of a painter. Using impressionist brush strokes, he paints crashing waves on the beach reminiscent of the Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923). His homage yearningly recalls a time when paintings represented all of the world's beauty.
PLEASE NOTE: The exhibition space can only be accessed during the events. While the exhibition is running, it can be viewed in the circular window display
TIP: Until 17 September 2017, Kunsthalle Lingen will be hosting the solo exhibition Sobre las olas by Diango Hernández. More information on www.kunsthallelingen.de
