Etienne Pottier: They Live

Until May 25th, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the first german solo show of French artist Etienne Pottier. Entitled ‘They Live’, the exhibition displays Etienne Pottier’s most recent body of works, specially crafted for his Berlin solo exhibition.

Using the artistic medium of gravure on metal, Etienne Pottier delves into his underground memories to impress usually morbid images on used fabrics.

Based on his personal experience of tekno free parties & underground sound systems, anti-fascist punk and black metal culture, Etienne Pottier translates and carves the energy and vitality captured on the different scenes as well as its strong death appeal, mainly using skulls as his artistic trademark.

This ‘materia prima’ is then transformed, alchemized into a universal form of art.

Life and death. Time-resistant metal plates and fragile fabrics. Noble technics, vernacular experience.

Etienne Pottier captures random and personal energies and transmits the fragile echo of life pulsing through the dense morbidity.

Exhibition: Tuesday – Saturday : 12:00 – 18:00. Until May 25th, 2013

Karine Lémery: die Wanderer (Les Zozos)

Starting on May 18th, Urban Spree Galerie is hosting a new body of works by Montreuil based artist Karine Lémery.

Running in parallel with Etienne Pottier’s “They Live” exhibition, it’s a wonderfully crafted, poetic and nostalgic papier mâché small sculptures exhibition which is going to take place in the Buchladen corner of Urban Spree. After France and Belgium, the Zozos are ready to take Berlin by surprise!

Karine Lémery nurtures her creations with found objects garnered in flea markets, antique stores and attics to bring back the antiquity of the nostalgic past to the present. She collects those tiny little things to give them a new sense of purpose and sensibility. An old kitchen clock, a bread thermometer, her old granny’s tissues or a flower cardboard box… Leméry uses these old manufactured objects to draw on it her own small characters. She gives to those items which formed parts of memories we once knew a renewed, witty form.

Her menagerie of drawings, mobiles and sculptures are small, almost fragile but delicate and thorough. Lémery confines insects under glass, makes multicolour fish flies and dresses up the Zozos for any circumstance.  Lémery’s universe will immerse you in a personal and neat phantasmagoria.

 

Vita: Born in 1971 in France, Karine Lémery graduates from ENSAD in 1996 with a diploma in furniture design. Enhancing her artistic skills with mosaic and wax moulding, she also develops an artistic practice around mobile sculptures, set in a poetic and personal universe composed of insects, birds, fish or acrobats.
