Herakut: ‘Flaw Circus’ | Ruttkowski;68

Herakut’s exhibition “Flaw Circus” at Ruttkowski;68 presents their most conscious outlooks on the world based on the experiences they have accumulated. The works challenge the audience and offer viewers a new perspective. Earlier this year, Siddiqui and Lehman completed a project in Syria and north Jordan. While the pair has always strived to explore social injustice, their work in these two countries once again showed quite plainly just how much influence street art can have in nations torn apart by war and other miseries. Because it’s in places like this where a splash of colour can have the largest impact. And it’s this energy that they try to harness with their work. Herakut: ‘Flaw Circus’ | Ruttkowski;68 | Exhibition dates: 29.8 – 28.9.2014

Combined with the right space with the right imagery, a whole new meaning occurs. More impresions after the jump:
