Am Freitag (29.08.2014) startet HERAKUT´s Ausstellung FLAW CIRCUS in der Kölner Galerie RUTTKOWSKI68. Die Ausstellung läuft bis 28.09.2014
HERAKUT is a German artist duo made up of Jasmin Siddiqui, aka ‚Hera‘ and Falk Lehmann, aka ‚Akut.‘ Throughout more than ten years of collaboration, the two have merged their individual approaches influenced by graffiti and street art. The result is a unique signature style characterised by melancholy and gratification that can be seen on large, outdoor murals and intriguing indoor exhibitions.
Earlier this year, Siddiqui and Lehman completed a project in Syria and north Jordan. While the pair has always strived to explore social injustice, their work in these two countries once again showed quite plainly just how much influence street art can have in nations torn apart by war and other miseries. Because it’s in places like this where a splash of colour can have the largest impact. And it’s this energy that they try to harness with their work.
Their exhibition, Flaw Circus, presents Herakut’s most conscious outlooks on the world based on the experiences they have accumulated. The works challenge the audience and offer viewers a new perspective.
