Jim Avignon: “Business as Unusual” Book Release + Concert

4 months after his solo show “Permanent Jetlag“, Jim Avignon returns to Urban Spree Galerie for the special launch of “Business as Unusual, the most complete monograph of the German artist to date, spanning 30 years of an unacademic career in 400+ illustrations.

 

Jim will sign his book and perform unplugged as Neoangin together with Jens Friebe on the grand piano.
 
Doors 18:00
Concert 19:00
Free Entry

 

The painter, illustrator and conceptual artist Jim Avignon is one of the most unconventional characters in the current German art world. Vibrant colours and unpretentious materials, a good dose of wit and an enormous output are his trademarks. For the first time an opulent monograph allows a comprehensive insight into the complex oeuvre of the artist, who has always sought confrontation with the establishment and who could never decide whether he wanted to be pop-art, street-art, Picasso on acid or whether he was simply the fastest painter in the world.
Avignon’s narrative about “things not going as planned” is full of concise quips and not without a certain delight. He expounds his peculiar relationship with the art market and describes the exhibitions that finally put him on the map as an exceptional artist. We get to read about odd detours into the world of commerce, a stolen bear, paintings that need ironing, call-for-help socks and how a mural almost landed him in jail. Avignon spills the beans about the high and lows of one of the strangest careers the art world has seen in the last 25 years—expect a lot of detail, an ironic undertone and an abundance of images.
 
“Business as Unusual” is a hardcover, 160 pages, 400 illustrations book published by the local imprint The Green Box with texts written by ATAK, Sandra Prill, and Lars Willumeit.

 

Yuto Yamada: Berlin/Tokyo II

Urban Spree Galerie presents ‘Berlin/Tokyo ll’, a photographic exhibition by Berlin-based Japanese photographer Yuto Yamada, opening on 17.11.2017 in our Galerie Ecke.

Berlin/Tokyo ll opens on the same night as Victor Ash’s 10-year Anniversary of the Astronaut Cosmonaut wall and will run until 10.12.2017.

 

Berlin and Tokyo are the two favorite topics of urban photographer Yuto Yamada and the subject of this exhibition one year after presenting his “Berlin/Tokyo” series at Urban Spree: Berlin as the city where he now lives and works since several year and the city of his childhood and youth, Tokyo.

In his ongoing series ‘Berlin/Tokyo’ he takes us on a journey to the dirty, abandoned side of Berlin with all its graffiti, destruction and decay, in absolute contrast with the modern and shiny photos of Tokyo’s illuminated cityscape, a stunning and surreal opposition.

 

‘BERLIN / TOKYO II’ is a photographic journey and modernist tale of two apparently opposed metropolises, the hi-tech Tokyo and the lo-fi Berlin.

Urban Spree celebrates 10 years of the Astronaut Cosmonaut Wall

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the iconic “Astronaut Cosmonaut” mural painting in Berlin Kreuzberg, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French street artist Victor Ash for a special pop up exhibition.

The exhibition will be centered around the cult figure of the Astronaut with numerous original/stenciled works on paper and a mural at Urban Spree. A series of screen prints is expected to be released as well.

Alongside Blu’s now gone white characters on the Cuvrybrache, Victor Ash’s “Astronaut Cosmonaut” has achieved a cult mural status for Berlin.

Standing in Berlin-Kreuzberg near Kottbusser Tor and painted during the legendary Backjumps Festival #3 in 2007, the painting of a floating astronaut on 22 x 14 meters strikes a particular chord in Berlin.

For the parisian artist born in 1968 and fascinated by the Cold War, space exploration, graffiti, subcultures & electronic music, Berlin was to become from the mid to late 80s and since then a focal point of his attention, with regular trips to the city alongside artistic projects and residencies.

Victor Ash photographed by Soren Solkaer in 2013

In 2007, the Backjumps Festival – brilliantly curated by Adrian Nabi, gives Victor Ash the occasion to paint a big wall. Victor wants to concentrate and express his past experiences and vision of Berlin, the space race between the USSR and the USA but also the different Berlin subcultures and the desire to escape reality. “I got inspired by the song from David Bowie “Space Oddity” from 1969 in which he tells the story of a astronaut who gets lost in space and later on with the song “Ashes to Ashes” in 1981 where Bowie tells us that the spaceman was in fact a junkie on a trip”.

For the artist, the “Astronaut/Cosmonaut” represents the will to escape to other universes, “like as a little child, I escaped to a fantasy world with my space drawings and as a teenager, I escaped to subcultures to find my identity in the urban environment where I grew up”.

Opening of Toums’ solo show “Primitive Acids”

Urban Spree Galerie presents « Primitive Acids » a photographic exhibition by Toums from 20.10 to 12.11.2017. The Opening Reception will be held on Friday, October 20th from 19:00 to 22:00.

« Primitive Acids » is the first German solo show of the French experimental analog photographer Thomas Gosset a.k.a. Toums.

Wandering between his native Bordeaux and Berlin, Toums redefines the medium of analog artistic photography by attacking his negatives with acids, ink, paint and other physical alterations and combining his skillsets with a dark contemporary mythology.

Working in darkroom and strictly excluding all forms of modern technique, his practice lurks in the footsteps of the late 19th century pioneers and early 20th century surrealist avant-gardes.

Portraits are his preferred genre. Toums destructures them until they achieve the transmutated vision that the artist has assigned to them. Like a deus ex machina, the photographer creates the portrait with his camera and subsequently creates the final image through his manipulations ex-post.

Utterly disrespectful of the medium, desacralizing it in order to provide a new meaning, Toums is a rare breed of an iconoclast photographer, with filiation looking towards Joel-Peter Witkin, Pierre Molinier, and Roger Ballen.

His direct and deadly intervention on the film, the materia prima of his work, procures a highly unstable result. Soon to be destroyed by acids, slowly corroding the matter, the films are revealed in the darkroom process and printed on silver gelatin. As the film returns to dust, the portraits become fugitives, trying to escape their own fate, living in a printed dimension and refusing mortality. It is no accident that most Toums compositions are building a new mythology with some elements borrowed from the Greek corpus of myths.

« I destroy my own films with the intention of entering in the very heart of the photosensitive material, which allows me to have a direct control over the frozen reality that I destructure at will. The goal being to understand this matter as painting with the intention of pushing back the normal process of photography to expand my own field of investigation and thus regain an imaginative and narrative freedom. For years I wanted to freeze absurd moments in reality. »
