Herakut: After the Laughter @ LeBasse Projects Chinatown
German art duo Herakut have a new exhibition with LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles. The show, entitled “After the Laughter”, features a new series of sculptures, photography and wall installations by the artists. In conjunction with the opening, Herakut will also be releasing their second book also titled After the Laughter. After a period of producing a series of work on canvas and exhibiting in ‘white wall’ style exhibitions, Herakut returns to an approach like their early years in presenting a fully immersive installation. The exhibition will showcase new original paintings, drawings, photography and a series of sculptures.
“After the Laughter runs through March 17, 2012. Too see more, visit Herakut.de or LeBasse Projects.
Hybrid Thinking @ Jonathan Levine Gallery
A selection of work from Jonathan Levine Gallery’s exhibition “Hybrid Thinking”. Curated by Wooster Collective’s Marc + Sara Schiller, the show show features work by: Dal, from Beijing, China (now based in Cape Town, South Africa); Herakut, a duo based in Frankfurt, Germany; Hyuro, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently based in Valencia, Spain; Roa, based in Belgium; Sit, from the Netherlands; and Vinz, born and based in Valencia, Spain.
“With a wide array of discipline, medium, style and cultural influence, work by the six artists in this exhibition is thematically cohesive in its related subject matter—through figurative pairings of human and animal elements, the artists explore concepts of instinct, identity and metamorphoses. In the curators’ words: “Hybrid Thinking refers to the current zeitgeist of our time: disparate cultures coming together to create something completely new. Though from distinctly different cultural backgrounds, these artists share an understanding of our cities, of the human condition and our complex relationship with nature.”
“Hybrid Thinking” runs through February 11, 2012. To see more, visit JonathanLevineGallery.com.
Herakut: Hope’s Reply
German collective Herakut have a new show on now at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles, California. “The exhibition features 10 new canvas mixed media paintings showcasing Herakut’s unique style and aesthetics. Through the strength of their work, coupled with the demand for their unique style, Herakut are now regarded as some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today. Their ability to work seamlessly both on the street and in a gallery setting has only added to their collector base.”
Based in Munich and Frankfurt, Herakut have exhibited internationally throughout Europe and the US including London, Paris, Madrid, Germany, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
“Hope’s Reply” runs through October 30, 2010. To see more of Herakut, visit Herakut.de or check out hundreds of images from fans on Flickr.
