The exhibition “Loving the Exiled” by the German duo artists, Hera and Akut, or Herakut, show images of society’s dispossesed which will tug at your heart strings. With faces casually turned to the viewer, the figures gaze at us with sad and yearning eyes. Explaining, Herakut says, “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?”
“Loving the Exiled” will be showing at 941 Geary in San Francisco through May 29, 2012.
