He attended group exhibitions in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the Kunsthalle Basel, the Kunstverein in Hamburg and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne.
Diango Hernández reveals individual moments of his biography in his paintings, objects and wall paintings. The longing for the lost home, the beach, the fruits and the language characterizes his aesthetic vocabulary. The meandering speeches of Fidel Castros transforms Diango Hernández into new visual expressions: in a wall painting, words become waves and waves to a sea of blue signs. Home as an ideological construction and home as a place of longing, the two memory axes, energy storage and the perpetual motion of the artistic production of Diango Hernández. The exhibition presents a comprehensive insight into his work with works from the past three years.
