HERAKUT

HERAKUT består af Jasmin Siddiqui (Hera) og Falk Lehmann (Akut), som startede deres samarbejde i 2004. Siden da har de lavet hundredvis af gigantiske gavlmalerier verden over udover at være repræsenteret på flere af verdens førende kunstgallerier og museer.
I Aalborg lavede duoen bl.a. byens længste gavlmaleri på 50 meter i byens centrum i 2018 som en del af galleriets gavlmaleriprojekt "Out in the Open".

I et narrativt billedsprog formes HERAKUT's værker i en meget karakteristisk streg, hvor Heras sanselige og samtidig grove udtryk danner rammen om form og proportion, mens Akut tilføjer de fotorealistiske elementer. Da udstillingen vil være et mix af fælles- og soloværker, vil man her samtidig få lejlighed til at opleve udførslen af disse karakteristika separat.

I krydsfeltet mellem de to kunstneres billedverdener er det lykkedes dem at skabe et helt særegent udtryk, som i dag er kendt verden over på gader, stræder, gallerier og museer.
I en imaginær verden opleves karaktererne i værkerne ofte i en kontekst af sociale fraktioner og kollektive begrænsninger, indlejret i citater, der fortæller om kærligheden og forholdet mellem mennesker. Graden af kontraster er hermed uendelig, hvor en barnlig drømmeverden ofte tillægges egenskaber fra dyr.

Hera, Jasmin Siddiqui, født i 1981 i Frankfurt, Tyskland. Hun studerede visuel kommunikation/grafisk design ved University of Applied Sciences i Wiesbaden og begyndte at male graffiti i 2000.
Akut, Falk Lehmann, født i 1977 i Schmalkalden, Tyskland. Han studerede visuel kommunikation/grafisk design på Bauhaus Universitet i Weimar og begyndte at male graffiti i 1991.
