Diango Hernández defines a line as an idea made manifest. He uses things he has found for his work, often simple materials like pieces of furniture, technical equipment like aerials or radio components, and art objects like sculptures, drawings, book reproductions or paintings. To the artist, these items bear witness to the formerly creative achievements of now ossified social and political systems. In his pieces, Hernández fragments and reduces items, parts of reality, which exist around us. In his often playful interaction with seemingly disparate elements, he generates fresh awareness of the freedom of the individual.
