Hercules Fisherman ist vielfältig kreativ und unterneh­merisch tätig, als Künstler, Herausgeber, Experte für Business Intelligence und Unternehmer im Bereich Medien und Kommunika­tionsdesign. Künstlerisch arbeitet er mit den Mitteln der Bildhauerei, Malerei, Installa­tion und Performance. Seine Werke waren bei zahlreichen Ausstellungen und Kunste­vents vertreten, in Barcelona, Arthouse in Irland, Edinburgh Festival, Riverside Studios in London und in privaten Sammlungen weltweit.

From mythological stories of the ancient we hear stories of mortal heros who are taken to task by  mighty deities to labors ranging in physical and mental extremes.

Unchain finds its root in humanities struggle to come to term with own existence and to find a path to freedom.

This exhibition explores conflicts that arise under suppression of all kinds, the desire to free our selves from troubling boundaries that make our life unbearable, the strong need to “unchain” remains central theme.

To free ourselves from perils of poverty and hunger, of torture and terror  being perpetrated daily.

However our strength today remains social, it is through the Internet, technology and social network that the activists are  able to employing their antidote to the dictatorial tyrannies, to promote democracy and  to promote of human rights in places where it was not possible in the past.

Unchain dedicates this exhibition to “Amina” in a world that a single act of brevity has sparked such passionate debate about the issues surrounding plight of women across the world, in many places patriarchal and gender apartheid are practiced with impunity. Unchain supports Femen call for action to Free Amina and other women like her under treat of terror.

For the occasion of this show Hercules Fisherman has built an augmented reality app as a gallery guide to this exhibition, which would allow users to interact with the works on display through their mobile devices, the system will provide facility to get more information on the work and incorporate many advanced features.
