For his first solo exhibition at T293 gallery HEIM JUST, Herkenhoener further stresses the play between causality and authoriality that has always informed his research through the use of a surrealists’ technique known as ‘cut-up’. Popularised by T. S. Eliot and W. Burroughs, the cut-up is a literary technique in which a text is cut and then randomly rearranged in order to create a new text. In this case, the text is rearranged by a software onto which the artist has previously inserted several selected texts along with his own writings. Herkenhoener has invented the expression ‘processing text’ in order to explain his artistic research: a research that arises from a specific context without never been completely subjected to the touch of the artist. Such process leads to the creation of a random language that refuses any rational or semantic hierarchy, albeit opening the path to new horizons of meaning. Indeed, in all his paintings and murals, the artist explores how to create the appropriate visual context for these illogical words to be fully experienced in their emotional and spiritual potential.
