Losing You Tonight
A restrained and beautiful two-volume artist’s book from Cuban-born artist Diango Hernández, published concurrently with his exhibition in the Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Siegen. Triggered by a memory of a death the artist experienced as a child at boarding school, the book ranges through his recollections of a school system that left little room to develop one’s individuality. In finely detailed drawings and photographs, many of which dance on the edge between hyperrealism and surrealism, Hernández takes these threads and weaves a story using the means of fine art, a story in which everyday objects—functional, technical, and decorative fittings—play a part. Includes a cloth tote bag.
