No tea, no sofa, no me by Diango Hernandez

hernandez_lead.jpg

This play on objects by Diango Hernandez is a look at the cultural meanings of the items with which we surround ourselves. When working with found objects he searches for the stories that lend the work a point of departure. No tea, no sofa, no me is an installation inspired by Cuba’s tea culture, synonymous with the pre-revolution bourgeoisie. Leg me, chair me, love me is indicative of functionality can only be resent when an object is complete. When fragmented, the meaning is cultural. Almost falling is a new installation currently taking pace in Milan, alluding “to the idea of waiting, of torture, but also to situations of power and elevation.”
