RedFlagg is pleased to present the New York debut exhibition of Herakut, the highly-acclaimed German collective comprised of Hera and Akut. The exhibition, entitled No Placebos, will open with a reception on Thursday, May 21st from 6-8pm and continue through July 3rd, 2009. This show will feature several paintings on a variety of media, all combining the two artist’s starkly different techniques. Hera’s emotional figures and silhouettes are extemporaneously created using spray cans, brushes, her hands, etc., while Akut’s hyper-realistic paintings of animals, flesh and facial features are rendered using only a spray can. This exhibition follows successful solo shows at Campbarbossa, London, The Leonard Street Gallery, London, and the Carmichael Gallery, Los Angeles. Copies of the recently published Herakut monograph The Perfect Merge will be available at RedFlagg.

Just got back the show was really nice, Hera and Akut are really humble artists. The pieces were not obnoxiously priced but high. there were 2 pieces I felt were rushed but there were at least 5 that were i dare say iconic and amazing. Those were the ones that were done in Germany. Anyway will post more later I have a price list if anybody is interested.
Tons of photographers were there so pics will show up soon in the interspaceweb 2.0
