Street Art Double Bill Hera X Banksy

6 June @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Festival artist Hera in conversation with critic Carlo McCormick
UK Premiere of “Banksy, The Stolen Girl/La Ragazza Triste”

Our festival launch commences with world-renowned festival artist Hera in conversation with cultural critic Carlo McCormick. Hera (Jasmin Siddiqui) has been travelling the world since 2001 painting large-scale murals, solo or as part of the duo Herakut. Aberdeen locals will fondly remember Herakut’s iconic, but now demolished mural on the façade of Aberdeen Market – an artwork that transformed the Granite City’s “ugliest” and most-maligned concrete building. Although this mural and the building it adorned no longer exist, Hera’s iconic work has become part of Aberdeen’s local imagery, and now forms part of the heritage associated with Nuart Aberdeen and this historic market site.

The evening will close with an exclusive UK Premiere of “Banksy, The Stolen Girl” with an introduction by Dr Enrico Bonadio.
Can a piece of street art express the feelings of an entire community and become the subject of a police manhunt? Yes, if it’s by Banksy. In memory of the victims of the terrorist attack on the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in 2015, Banksy covered a door of the building with a stencil which became known as “The Sad Girl”. The artwork was brazenly stolen in the dead of night…but who stole it and why – and will it ever be found?
