Diango Hernández
Born in 1970 in Sancti Spíritus, Cuba. Since 2006 lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany.

"Hernández grew up on Cuba and studied Industrial Design in Havana at the beginning of the nineties. A short time later, however, he realized that what really interested him was artistic work – solitary work that no one had asked him to do. In those years, as we all know, the world’s political blocks crumbled and Cuba’s trade relations with the Soviet Union collapsed. ‘Special Period’ was the term coined for this new epoch, in the hope that the economic crisis would prove exceptional rather than lasting. Times of radical change tend to sharpen our observation; the ability to interpret inconspicuous details becomes necessary, so that we can comprehend changes and new circumstances. Everyday objects – and functional, technical and decorative furnishings and fittings – unfold magical powers in times of transition. For those who can read them, they represent the material from which stories can be woven – personal stories that may reveal more of the truth than official pronouncements."
