Interview: Herakut's "Rental Asylum" @ Corey Helford Gallery, Los Angeles
For almost 15 years now, HERA (Jasmin Siddiqui) and AKUT (Falk Lehmann) have created one of the most enduring and influential street art duos working in the world today. The German artists have taken Herakut from street works to murals, gallery shows to performance, with sculptural works that take their characters from 2D to 3D to everywhere in between. Herakut are set to open a new solo show, Rental Asylum, at Corey Helford Gallery in downtown Los Angeles on February 24, and we caught Jasmine right before her flight to LA to talk about the title of the show, the changing political landscape in both the US and Germmany and the evolving nature of her work.
