Ben de Biel: « Berlin 1990-1994 »

Dans le cadre de la manifestation BLN+ organisée à Lille en partenariat avec l’Aéronef, Urban Spree Gallery présente en mai une exposition du photographe berlinois Ben de Biel.

Ben de Biel est le photographe de la mutation accélérée du quartier phare de Berlin-Est, Mitte (le Centre, le Milieu). Artiste bohème, activiste squatteur, patron de club, Ben est une figure légendaire du Berlin post-chute du Mur.

Depuis les années 1990, Ben photographie au jour le jour les changements qui s’opèrent dans son quartier de Mitte et les archive par année.

Son travail le situe au croisement de la photographie documentaire (au sens d’Atget), du travail de mémoire, mais témoigne aussi de la vitalité de la bohème berlinoise des années 1990, bohème qui a façonné le Berlin d’aujourd’hui, entre club culture et libertarisme.

Intitulée « Berlin 1990-1994 », l’exposition que nous présentons à l’Aéronef de Lille retrace 4 années de la vie de Mitte, de celle de Ben aussi, et offre ainsi un fascinant témoignage du Berlin des années 90, après la chute du Mur et avant le temps des désillusions. Vernissage le mercredi 15 mai 2013 à 18h00 en présence de l’artiste.

 

Urban Spree Gallery est une galerie indépendante berlinoise centrée sur les cultures, les pratiques et les mutations urbaines. Implantée au cœur de Berlin dans un vaste complexe post-industriel, la galerie revendique une approche artistique de terrain et privilégie les pratiques vernaculaires, en exposant notamment des artistes issus du street art et de la photographie urbaine, artistes contemporains en prise directe avec la ville, sa topographie, ses méandres et cicatrices, son passé, son présent et son avenir.

Opening of Mik Shida: “A Conduit Order” on 28.06

Urban Spree Galerie presents “A Conduit Order”, the first solo show in Germany of the Australian visual artist and muralist Mik Shida. The exhibition will open in our Berlin galerie on Thursday, June 28th 2018, starting at 19:00.

Mik Shida was invited to Berlin by Urban Spree for a 2-month Art Residency which culminates into a presentation of a full new body of works, including large format paintings, and installations.

Photographic Credit: Duran Levinson

Shida’s paintings are shamanic “tableaux vivants” in which spiritual, ritualistic and organic elements coalesce, where temporality is transient, boundaries and space indistinct, where portals, alternative dimensions, spells and energy fields abound.

Spirits and movement are the materia prima of Shida’s oeuvre. The artist is a vessel, a conduit, through which sprits awaken, arise, and finally materialize within the paintings, within those transient spaces where the artist is allowed to conduct the dance, and is in turn being directed by the creations his paintings have summoned.

We can also view and understand Shida’s murals as spiritual beacons, large outdoor gateways meant to create an intercession with spirits.

 

Shida (born 1990) is an Australian multidisciplinary artist best known for his large scale mural work. Shida’s practice encompasses video, publishing, public works and murals.

 

“Shida explores the relationship between Ritual, Sexuality and Love. Psychedelic entities are entwined in a ceremonial act transcending the bounds of known reality. Shida works like an ancient shaman with each works being in essence an invocation, an energetic manifestation, a prayer to joy.” (Wikipedia)

In parallel to Shida’s presentation of works in our main galerie space, Urban Spree invites Knarf, Fresh Max and Mafia Tabak for a pop up exhibition in our “Ecke”.

Tutti Frutti Fest #3

Tutti Frutti Fest #3
– präsentiert von taz. die tageszeitung, ByteFM, Nothing But Hope And Passion, hhv Records, ASK HELMUT & MAKAVA delighted ice tea

Ganz und gar und einfach nur noch fantastisch!!

Ich würde sogar sagen das Motto ist «sexyerotisch»

Tutti Frutti, ein sexyerotisches Festival am Busen der Spree.

LineUp
. walter tv (CA)
. Aldous RH (UK)
. Jakob Ogawa (NO)
. Mile me deaf (AT)
. Tatum Rush (CH)
. WORLD BRAIN (DE)

Tutti Frutti Fest is back!

Nach 2 fruchtigen sold out Versionen des hauseigenen pøj pøj Tagesfestivals, , welches den Geburtstag der Booking Agentur aus Berlin markiert, findet auch dieses Jahr das Tutti Frutti Fest wieder statt. Genauer gesagt am 09. Dezember 2017 im Urban Spree.

Nachdem in den letzten beiden Jahren das LineUp verstärkt auf Künstler aus dem eigenen Roster gelegt wurde, haben die Berliner Booking Buben dieses Jahr ein kunterbuntes sexi LineUp aufgestellt welches sich sehen lässt.

Ganz weit vorne mit dabei sind sicherlich Walter TV & Aldous RH.

Walter TV sollte mindestens den Mac DeMarco Fans ein Begriff sein, da 2/3 der kanadischen Dudes bei Mac DeMarco mit auf der Bühne zu finden sind.
„Undeniably bassy, these 3 lewd dudes from Vancouver Canada ruin the stage.“ Passt!

Aldous RH ist der unumstrittene neue Liebling vieler Musiker aus Psych- und Krautrock Szene & war zuletzt mit Drugdealer auf Europatour. Beim Tutti Frutti Fest #3 müsste er sich damit mehr als gut aufgehoben fühlen!

Mit World Brain, dem Solo Projekt von Lucas Ufo (Fenster), kehrt das Tutti Frutti Fest dann sogar ein wenig zu seinen Wurzeln zurück, als Fenster auf dem TFF#1 die Meute verzückten. Ganz sicher wird World Brain das gleiche auf dem TFF#3 mit dem Publikum anstellen.

Ganz ohne pøj pøj Bands geht es dann natürlich nicht, und so tritt neben dem 20 jährigen Newcomer aus Norwegen, Jakob Ogawa, der im Dezember seine erste Europa Tour spielt, bevor es nach Argentinien zum Lollapalooza geht, auch Tatum Rush auf.

Tatum Rush ist ein Weltenbummler. Wohnhaft in Lausanne und Lugano pendelt der in Amerika geborenen Italiener zwischen Milan und Paris. Als Videokünstler und Musiker steht er ungern still. Das merkt man auch seiner Liveperformance an. Mit einer Mischung aus Italo-Pop, Disco und Psychedelic funktioniert das im New Yorker Underground Club genauso wie auf der italienischen Hochzeit am Gardasee.

& zu allerletzt wird dann auch noch Mile Me Deaf in Solo Form auftreten, eine Seltenheit die man sich nicht entgehen lassen darf!

Mit Alien Age hat Wolfgang Möstl Anfang des Jahres wohl eines der vielschichtigsten MMD Alben veröffentlicht. Das Geschrammel der Vorgängeralben wurde mit Alien Age vorerst begraben. Sample-basierte Beats und Loops geben nun den Ton an.

Sexi Erotisch ist das Motto des Tutti Frutti Festes #3, und spätestens mit diesem LineUp macht das ganze dann auch Sinn!



Kazumoto Endo \ Facialmess \ MAAAA \ Purgist \ Krube.

Kazumoto Endo (Tokyo, Japan)

Since the mid-’90s, japanese noise artist Kazumoto Endo has released albums and eps under his own name and under the alias KILLER BUG. growing up in the ’80s, endo listened to british bands like THE CURE and THE SMITHS, then got turned on to groups such as PUSSY GALORE and BIG BLACK, and began attending live performances by influential noise bands including HANATARASH and HIJOKAIDAN. Endo was, however, unimpressed with how noise music came across on recordings. He wanted to learn to play something different and so took traditional bolivian music classes. It was during this time that Endo purchased the first noise record he was impressed by: MERZBOW’s Cloud cock 00 ground. Endo began buying equipment and making noise around 1990, in addition to continuing his bolivian music classes. Endo began recording in 1994 under the name KILLER BUG, with his first 7″ released on sweden’s releasing Eskimo label. He performed and recorded as KILLER BUG for a couple of years, but eventually dropped the alias. although he most often performs in Tokyo, Endo has also performed in the U.S., in 1995, 1997 and 2016. KAZUMOTO ENDO/ KILLER BUG has releases on labels from around the world, including releasing eskimo (sweden), self abuse, rrr, pinch- a-loaf (u.s.), alien8 recordings (canada), and freak animal (finland).

FACIALMESS (Tokyo, Japan)
Harsh noise project of british ex-pat Kenny Sanderson. Since 1997, Sanderson has been creating cut up harsh noise consisting of found sounds, industrial loops and stabs of percussion. FACIALMESS has released an impressive array of solo and collaborative efforts including work withwith SICKNESS, BASTARD NOISE, GUILTY CONNECTOR and SUPPRESSION. More recent work can be found on labels such as Opal tapes, Kitty play and No rent records. Effortlessly handling knife edge blasts of noise in between pounding sonic loops, sanderson is a master in the shredding and reassembly of his exclusive brand of cut-up harsh noise.
Expect an unmistakable and unforgettable style, blown-out distorted textures, over-the-top volume, sick high-energy passages, frantic cuts, drills, loops, subtle hints of heavy atmospherics…

MAAAA (Warsaw, Poland)
Russian expat Sergei Hanolainen is the conduit for the well oiled machine that is MAAAA; a critically acclaimed Warsaw based noise project that has undergone years of refinement and as a result, has become to play a pivotal role in the concurrent noise climate. MAAAA’s well rehearsed live shows exhibit merciless deliveries of heavy electronics and dizzying drones that induce a physical response not so dissimilar to G forces. As MAAAA continues to mature, his albums strike a blend of classic, neo and underground styles, of the industrial and of the musique concrète, that are progressive, inspired and precise. It is not often that you see an artist so in touch with their machine.

PURGIST (Kielce, Poland)
Dawid Kowalski is a sound artist, improviser, music publisher, culture animator, live event organizer and art activist specializing in radical avant-garde electronic music. an active member of the polish and international underground music community since the early 2000s. Founder of harshnoise.org (“we fight off tyranny of hate which decimates stupid people!”). PURGIST combines a variety of classic experimental music tropes such as object/tape manipulation, electroacoustic improvisation, industrial noise and combines them with extensive digital post-processing placing the end result in a musical context. PURGIST is an outlet for focused exploration of urban field recordings, digital artifacts, aural atmospherics and disjointed noise dynamics. His vivid, cinematic post- industrial harsh noise works have a prominent conceptual background based on a reflection upon personal vices and self-abusive obsessions.
