Wolf City presents: Demilich, Spectral Voice

 

Perverted aeons gave birth to Demilich in the early 90’s, the creature swiftly disappearing back into the bowels of putrefying earth after dropping the deformed masterpiece “Nespithe” in 1993 – guttural geometry of hell.
Since a few years they’re back to bludgeoning audiences with stellar results and finally we can lay them a place at our table – please bring enough guts to devour, for it is a historical occasion.

The other passengers on this train of death are none other than Spectral Voice, death-doom most beloved current artisans (also twin to monster death metal extraordinaire Blood incantation), finally crashing into Berlin on their second European tour.

Seldom will you experience a more apt show to sacrifice your aural senses and your flesh to. The gods of the abyss await with hungry fingers.

The Teufelsberg Series

The Teufelsberg Series was engineered as a spin-off  project from the Dubl Trubl collaborative group exhibition at Urban Spree (18 September 2014 – 30 October 2014), which gathered the works of 90 artists, but only artworks resulting from a collaboration with another artist, therefore excluding solo pieces and blurring the lines of style and hierarchy.

The print series stems from the same collaborative spirit, however in a different way: this time, it consists of individual hand painted variations but on the same support, i.e. a hand pulled screen print of a drawing designed by german artist and illustrator Chrisse Kunst and printed in the Mother Drucker Ateliers at Urban Spree.

The black-and-white print was offered as a common playground for each artist, with ample white space (blank space has been widened on purpose during the print process and accounts for about 50% of the print), in order for each artist to have enough space to project their universe and vision with minimal existing constraints.

imag0252The project was launched just before the vernissage of the show and all 19 over-painted prints have been collected over time and eventually displayed in the gallery for the finissage of the show on October 30th.

Among the different drawings of Chrisse Kunst, Teufelsberg retained our attention owing to its incredible and multi-layered story: this iconic West Berlin dreamscape starts in 1945 when the US Army decided to destroy with explosives the foundations of a nazi Technical University in the Grunewald Forest, west of Berlin, near the ominously-named Teufelssee (The Devil’s Lake).

 However, the walls were so thick (8 meters of reinforced concrete) that it proved impossible to blow away. In order to erase the remnants of this nazi symbol, the Americans decided to use the site as a wasteland and piled up the rubble of 25.000 destroyed houses from Berlin, resulting in a 120-meter high, all artificial hill, actually the highest “natural” elevation of the city. The name “Teufelsberg” (Devil’s Mountain), derives from the name of the nearby lake and cast an ominous and mysterious glow on that area.

Furthermore, in the 1960s, the NSA built on top of the plateau a hearing station to spy on the Soviets and East German administration . These are the buildings portrayed in the print, nowadays abandoned and decayed, and known as a famous graffiti spot, which is the present-day connection to our story.

A million thanks to our crew of Teufelberg warriors who participated in the project:

DUBL TRUBL >> Closing Party | Zine, Video & Print Release

DUBL TRUBL Impossibe
Curated by Dscreet, the DUBL TRUBL exhibition at Urban Spree gathered 90 street and graffiti artists predominantly from the London scene to work in duos and display artworks made on a collaboration basis.

The outcome is a vivid, free-spirited, and grassroots street art show where most artists have displayed a more graffiti-oriented vision, both on the walls painted outside or in the works shown in the gallery. “Back to the roots of street art” in a way, this spirit being also embodied in the DUBL TRUBL dark humored series of videos.

For the closing evening & party on October 30th, a special DUBL TRUBL zine and a series of fresh videos are currently in the making to document the adventure and spirit of the show. Both will be released during the party.

We will also celebrate the launch of Chrisse Kunst’s Print collaboration with Dave The Chimp, Billy & Alex, RekaThierry Noir, Aeon, Christiaan Nagel, Pure Evil, EBOT, 44flavours, Base23 and more. ..

Dubl Trubl

Curated by Dscreet, the Dubl Trubl exhibition at Urban Spree gathered 90 street and graffiti artists predominantly from the London scene to work in duos and display artworks made on a collaboration basis.

The outcome is a vivid, free-spirited, and grassroots street art show where most artists have displayed a more graffiti-oriented vision, both on the walls painted outside or in the works shown in the gallery. “Back to the roots of street art” in a way, this spirit being also embodied in the dubl trubl dark humored series of videos.

For instance, on the big Urban Spree Wall (12 meters long on 7 meters high), Paul Insect sprayed 2 stoned cute characters on the bottom sides while Reka painted the 2 characters on top inspired by double dragon arcade gaming style, featuring local heroes Super Kotti vs. Friedrichshain Megapunk. This very joyous, no pressure, and often dark & gritty humored dubl trubl spirit (as if powered remotely by Lush) infused the whole place during a fantastic week that culminated with a wonderful and massive opening.

Out of the 90 dubl-trubl-crew members, about 25 artists have made the trip to Berlin to participate to the whole repainting of the Urban Spree compound.

Montana Cans offered 500 cans for the show and it was decided to limit the color range to only 3 colors: power yellow, white & black, – the colors of the dubl trubl logo – to induce a massive impact on visitors and make it more cohesive.

Inside, the show goes in the gallery space and in the new section with about 50 artworks, both from emerging and confirmed artists.

Another milestone of the show was the epic erection of Christiaan Nagel‘s biggest realization so far, the mega mushroom! A 7-meter high electric blue mushroom, grown out a dead tree.

For the finissage on October 25th, a dubl trubl zine is currently in the making which documents the adventure and spirit of the show.

The whole series of hand-painted prints of Teufelsberg drawn by Chrisse Kunst will be on display for the finissage. More artists are working currently on the ongoing project and the result will be an exceptional rendering of this mythical place west of Berlin, today a prime graffiti spot inside an abandoned NSA spying station (dubl trubl vs. the Soviets), built on a 120 meters artificial hill itself made from the rubble of WWII bombed Berlin houses, erected to cover the location of a Nazi building whose walls were so thick (8m concrete and steel) that it couldn’t be blown up by explosives!
