Hendrik Czakainski’s exhibition video trailer

In less than 20 days, Hendrik Czakainski will present a new series of wall sculptures at Urban Spree Galerie on the occasion of his 3rd solo exhibition in our space.

We met the artist in his Neukölln studio at the end of September and captured in video some of his preparations for the show “SWITCH -OVER“.

The video was filmed and edited by Gabriel Sousa (Devir Producoes).

Hendrik Czakainski returns to Urban Spree with his 3rd solo show “SWITCH-OVER”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “SWITCH-OVER“, the third solo exhibition of the Berlin-based visual artist Hendrik Czakainski at Urban Spree Galerie.

Hendrik Czakainski’s materia prima is the urban matter captured at different stages of dereliction. Adopting a bird’s eye view, the artist creates large-scale post-architectural panels which are dark anatomical explorations of the urban body.

The artist becomes a forensic architect, collecting evidence of disasters, past, present and future, incorporating them in surreal compositions of large proportions, creating 3-dimensional landscapes which have become void of human presence and frightfully beautiful at the same time. His creations bring us to a state of contemplation and fascination, owing to the combination of shape and colour.

His monumental cuts, holes, and excisions to his fantastic architectural matter reach us beyond the scope of architecture and strip down those man-made artefacts to the minimum, lay them bare, and essentially on the brink of abstraction.

In SWITCH-OVER, the artist distantiates himself from the highly densified housing settlements he has been creating in the past years to pursue a more radical approach. His apocalyptic tableaux give away few clues as to when the mutations happened, what exactly happened, how was it even possible to switch from one state to the next, and which situation we are actually in, leaving the spectator forging his own clues. Are we investigating a foregone reality, are we already processing the next move, or are we trapped in between ?

In his new compositions, we ask ourselves if humanity is still part of the global equation or if the tipping point has been already reached; if a reversal is even possible.

Most works of the show are constructed in two or three parts, creating a dynamic impulse, searching for life in interstitial space, infusing tension, and establishing a mutual dialog, a new social contract of what’s left.

Anthony Lister’s solo show until 20.10.2018

Anthony Lister‘s solo show at Urban Spree Galerie – “Sneaky Bit In” – which opened last week in Berlin, will be on display for 1 month until 20.10.2018 and will be our flagship exhibition during the Berlin Art Week (26-30.09.2018).

 

 

The exhibition is the outcome of 3 weeks of an intense residency in Berlin, during which the Australian artist produced a painting cycle based around the 1973 cult movie “The Holy Mountain” by Alejandro Jodorowski and incorporating mythological & biblical elements, as well as clear references to Picasso and Damien Hirst. Lister has been obsessively confronting himself to Picasso during the last 6 months and his new production marks a step away from his most famous cycles (superheroes, ballerinas), albeit retaining some aspects of the recent flower cycle (sunflowers in the “Pan As Pimp” painting), and incorporating some lister-esque elements and details, which makes a Lister painting a Lister painting.

3 very large paintings (each 280 x 300 cm) compose the backbone of the exhibition, including a revisitation of Picasso’s “Les demoiselles d’Avignon” (“Pan As Pimp“). 3 medium-sized portraits of women complete the painting cycle. Besides this new series of paintings, Lister produced a sculpture and a short movie hacking the Jodorowski film by incorporating the artist’s face, voice-over, subverting it, self-editing on his cell phone.

 

In addition to the exhibition, Anthony Lister painted the Urban Spree Artist Wall (15 x 8 m). The mural tells of an alternative narrative to the painting “Tearing at the Bit” whereby the two characters of the ram and the tiger are being cast in a different manner, as well as in the painting style, this time reminiscent of Egon Schiele, painted only with a small roller fixed on top a a 6m extension pole. a paint-fueled fire extinguisher, and touches of spray paint.

The residency itself implies a lot of uncertainties as the artist is brought out of his comfort zone and the creative alterations, urgency, and risk-taking thereof are part of the process. For this residency, Lister created a studio full of references, sketches, citations, while numerous canvases were laid on the floor and painted, expanding the initial corpus set by the 3 major paintings. None of these paintings made it to the exhibition but were an essential part of the creative process and part of the artist’s universe for a part of the journey.

 

The gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 12:00-19:00 or by appointment (galerie@urbanspree.com).

The catalogue of the show is available here.

The video has been filmed and edited by Gabriel Sousa (Devir Producoes, Sao Paulo) while photographs are shot by Gabriel Sousa and Lara Beins.

Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.

Roman Klonek: Cut the Crap

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Cut the Crap“, a new series of woodcut printings by Düsseldorf-based visual artist Roman Klonek that will be exhibited in our Galerie Ecke.

The Opening Cererony will take place on Friday, September 7th, from 19:00 and occurs during Berlin’s Urban Art Week (05-12 September 2018).

In “Cut the Crap”, the traditional craftsmanship of wood carving meets experimental forms of narration. The stories are free of categorical specifications, neither temporally nor spatially clear.

Comparably perhaps most likely with a multi-layered sketchbook, which one may imagine here once the paper would be transparent and everything “drawn” a hopeless gibberish and confusion.

 

 

 

“Maybe I should now mention that I love to make a mess to clean it up afterwards. If it comes to an unexpected coincidence of two or more ideas (which often happens in a natural way), it may well happen that these encounters cause a moment of happiness in me because of their originality.

As far as the combination of ideas or picture elements is concerned, I like to move in the tradition of the so-called B-Movies, which are an alternative to the calculable mainstream cinema, with much more risk-taking and no consideration for conceptual rigor, often show the key features in telling stories – the moments of surprise.”
