A new exhibition entitled Loving the Exiled, by the German artistic duo, Herakut, will open this Saturday in San Francisco at 941 Geary. Herakut is interested in continuing a dialogue between the highs and lows of human nature. They primarily depict people and animals within the work in a way that tells a story through symbolism.
The artists’ give us some insight about their new body of work, “To the San Francisco show we will be bringing characters that have fallen from grace. We took a look to the banned and exiled, the abandoned child that first cries of fear and then of rage, flocks of scapegoats, a choir of arch enemies, the outlawed, the out-numbered, the ones that know they are very last of their kind, the extinguished. When will we end up in their place?” The exhibition will run until May 29, 2012. – Jane Kenoyer and photos by Jennifer Goff
