“Waves are the language of the sea. A language that can be used for painting, for creating images of a more fluid world, a world without rigidity, a liquid world.”
Diango Hernández 1970, Born in Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, Lives and works between Düsseldorf and Havana, Cuba.
Diango Hernández in the early 1990s amid the economic crisis triggered by the fall of the Soviet Union participated in various collective initiatives as part of the Cuban cultural scene. Hernández co-founded together with Francis Acea Ordo Amoris Cabinet. Also known as OAC, the artistic duo rapidly gained recognition exhibiting throughout Europe and North America. In the early 2000s he moved to Europe, where he continued to produce artworks that have made him one of the leading heirs of the American conceptual legacy.
In 2009 Hernández was awarded with The Rubens Award for his outstanding contribution to the field of art. His works have been exhibited around the world and explore themes such as cultural identity and the impact of politics on everyday life. The Rubens Award is considered one of the highest honors in the art world and recognizes artists who have made a significant impact on the industry through their artistry and creativity.
His work was the subject of solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle, Basel (2006) and the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein (2007). His work was exhibited in the Arsenale as part of the 51st Venice Biennale and the Biennale of Sydney and the São Paulo Biennial, both in 2006. His work was the subject of a critically acclaimed exhibition of new work, “Losing You Tonight,” at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Siegen (2009) and in 2010 two installations were included in “The New Décor” at the Hayward Gallery, London. A survey exhibition of his work took place at Museo D’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (MART) in Rovereto in 2011-12. In 2013, Marlborough Contemporary, London presented a solo exhibition of his work “The New Man and the New Woman.” His work was the subject of a solo exhibition “Socialist Nature” in 2014 at Landesgalerie, Linz. Hernández has had solo exhibitions at Marlborough Contemporary, London and the Kunsthalle Munster in 2015. In 2016, a solo exhibition of Hernández’s work, titled “Theoretical Beach,” took place at the Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen.
