Upcoming Solo Show: Christian August a.k.a. KID CASH: “Very Necessary”

Urban Spree Galerie announces the upcoming first solo show of Berlin-based post-graffiti artist Christian August alias KID CASH.

Christian August, born in 1977 in Halle (Saale), is a graduate of the Burg Giebichenstein University of Fine Arts in Halle in the class of Gerhard Schwarz and a founding member of the renowned KLUB7 Berlin artist collective.

The exhibition, entitled VERY NECESSARY, crystallizes his artistic direction of the last three years and  displays a brand new corpus of works which will be on display at Urban Spree Galerie for the first time.

9.KIDCASH_1HourFame_Halle-Saale_16

The title of the exhibition refers to his primary work in the public space and hints to the necessity for him of showing his artworks in the context of a gallery space.

In the middle of the 1990s, KID CASH started graffiti and paintings on public walls and to analyze surfaces, urban landscapes and architecture. components which are still at the core of his artistic practice. The departure point for his imagery are often spontaneous sketches and photographs that result from everyday situations and emotions, from landscapes and still life to letters and quotes from artworks of Picasso, Henri Matisse or Hans Arp.

1.KidCash_Verynecessary_VERY_150x200cm_Keyvisual

The action of the body and his dynamics play a major role in the compositions of KID CASH’s large-scale artworks which require total commitment and physical strength. The graffiti letters of the 1970s in New York and the German post-reunification subcultures in the 1990s still make an observable impact on his artistic vocabulary. Also, his name derives from common names as KID and CASH, popular within the subculture.

3.KidCash_Verynecessary_Presse_2

The choice of materials stems from those which enable KID CASH to work quickly and spontaneously and facilitate his intuitive and energetic modus operandi as acrylic and spray paint, construction materials, wood and canvases. The depicted visual language is dominated by seriality, an important element in KID CASH’s narrative.

“Incoming” by Richard Mosse

Mack Books just released Richard Mosse‘s new photobook, “Incoming“, derived from an ambitious multimedia project. 3 years after “The Enclave”, shot in Congo with Aerochrome infrared film, Mosse’s new photobook consists of 600 still images from his video installation at the London’s Barbican Gallery.

16730389_10154733043344193_1664583788587778591_n

Projected across three 8 meter wide screens, the film – made in collaboration with cinematographer Trevor Tweeten and composer Ben Frost – is accompanied by a loud dissonant soundtrack to create an overwhelming, immersive experience. Moving from footage of a live battle inside Syria, in which a US aircraft strikes Daesh positions on the ground, to a scene showing pathologists extracting DNA from the bones of unidentified corpses of refugees drowned off the Aegean island of Leros, the film opens a testimonial space of historical document mediated through an advanced military camera technology.

Mosse 8 Mosse 13 Mosse 15 Mosse 24

Narratives of the journeys made by refugees and migrants across the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, are captured using an extremely powerful thermographic military camera which perceives body heat at a 50km distance. The camera translates the world into a heat signature of temperature difference, producing a dazzling monochrome halo-image which alludes literally and metaphorically to hypothermia, climate change, weapons targeting, border surveillance, xenophobia, and the life of stateless people.

The book is available at Urban Spree Berlin and online.

Pablo Tomek new solo show “Thank You Boss”

Urban Spree Galerie announces the first german solo show of Paris-based post-graffiti artist Pablo Tomek, opening on Saturday 18.02.2017 at 18:30 after a full 2-week Berlin residency at Urban Spree.

As part of its Art Residency Program, Urban Spree Galerie has invited the Paris-based artist Pablo Tomek in February 2017 to invest its Berlin space for 2 weeks to create large-format artworks in situ, a couple of months after his participation to the Palais de Tokyo’s Lasco Project where he created a 500sqm outdoor mural.

PABLO TOMEK SHOW OPENING "THANK YOU BOSS" OPENS ON 18.02

For Tomek, the construction and building sites scattering the city are endless sources of materials and plastic inspiration, whereby the relationship between building and demolition seems like a paradigm of the modern world, an aesthetics prone to détournements and dérives.

The materials flow in, the materials come into confrontation, the colours are damaged, the accidents shape, and things are born.

FEBRUARY IN URBAN SPREE

The exhibition “Thank You Boss” is a homage to the unknown and undetected aesthetics and “paintings” of construction workers, to the graffiti artists who ransack palisades, to the glass cleaners, to the roadside accidents that reshape the space, to the posters paste-ups, and time, that pulls them away.
Tomek’s first published monograph, “Teren Alchemia“, published by Classic Paris in January 2017, will be on display in the Urban Spree shop and the artist will sign copies.

About the artist:

The art of Pablo Tomek (b. 1988 in Paris) originates in graffiti for which he has developed a rough experimental approach, which is further refined in his studio practice. Tomek studies the relationships between graffiti and abstract expressionist painting, the techniques and aesthetics of manual street workers (whiting with sponges, use of construction materials, remix of the fluorescent marks made by architects, abandoned objects, high-pressure cleaning tools), in a way to transmute objects and mundane practices into a new purpose and meaning, against a backdrop of an ever growing gentrification process.

His art stems from the hectic repetition of the gesture that drive the mechanical, anonymous practices of tagging and cleaning, which are part of the daily life of cities. By confronting the body and painting with space, between constant energy and fatigue, Pablo Tomek creates a painting which toys with its own destruction, resulting in a dance of pictorial ghosts.

Pablo Tomek’s work has been presented at several solo and group shows: at the galerie du jour agnès b. in Paris (“Etat des lieux”, 2013), the Frac Nord – Pas de Calais (“Toy”, 2014), in an illegally occupied industrial wasteland (“Expressiv Tag Painting”, Pantin, 2015), at the HLM in Marseille (“Honte”, 2015), the Bateau Lavoir (“Après Coup”, 2015), the Mini Galerie in Amsterdam (“Worker Games”, 2016), the Lasco Project #7 (Paris, 2016) where he produced a 500 sqm outdoor mural at the Palais de Tokyo, and Urban Spree Galerie in February 2017, following a 2-week in situ residency.

Two Months, Two Windmills

Austrian artist Mafia_Tabak teamed up with the hungarian artist Zsombor Sali to paint two huge windmills in Austria in the summer of 2016. The video shows footage from two months of living and working in the Austrian mountains (Hochpürschtling, Styria).

The whole project is self-documented and edited by the artists, which was a big challenge to do alongside painting on a tight schedule. The working conditions where tough due to the inconsistent mountain-weather, including pelting rain, thunder and wind speeds of nearly 80km/h.
