Reminiscent of haiku, Rodrigo Hernández's works (paintings, sculptures, reliefs, installations) are lyrical explorations of most intimate moments of human relationships and the metaphysical states of mind. For Kestner Gesellschaft's facade, the artist is conceiving a golden tableau at a confluence of his narrative language and the modernist grid of the architectural pattern.
