Urban Spree at La Vallée in Brussels

From 01.09 to 04.09.2016, Urban Spree is invited by La Vallée in Brussels to celebrate their first anniversary over 4 days with a group show curated by Urban Spreeworkshops by our Urban Spree resident artists, a neon installation and a mini book- and print- shop.

LaVallee-poster-english

La Vallée is a cultural center located in Brussels-Molenbeek with 6000 sqm, exhibition rooms and 70 artist residencies.

For the Group Show, we have selected 18 artists, including 3 Urban Spree resident artists (Andrea Wan,  Johannes Mundinger, Rylsee). Most artists are Berlin-based artists, and artists whom we feel really close and have worked together on several projects. If the show has obvious street & graffiti roots, most artists have evolved into more abstract & contemporary territories.

Artist Line-up: Andrea Wan, Charlie Anderson, Hendrik Czakainski, Jan Kaláb, Jim Avignon, Johannes Mundinger, Kid Cash, Klone, Low Bros, Mafia Tabak, Michal Škapa, Norman Behrendt, Onio, Rylsee, Mik Shida, Sosek, Twoone, Various & Gould.

Norman Behrendt will exhibit in the mezzanine space of La Vallée as a solo show his photographic series “Burning Down the House” while Rylsee, Kid Cash & Various and Gould will travel to Brussels to prepare site-specific installations & wall paintings. Last but not the least, Jim Avignon will play for the opening night with his one-man band & visual show Neo-Angin. Expect some workshops with our artists on Saturday 03.09.

With the Urban Spree BXL pop up shop, we will also bring a selection of our Berlin shop, books, t-shirts and screen prints, a special street corner by Sneeer (Rylsee’s new clothing line) for the belgian public to discover.

New screen prints released with Hell’O

Urban Spree Prints release 2 new screen prints on the occasion of “Balance”, the solo show of the Brussels-based duo Hell’O Collective at Urban Spree Galerie.

Both prints are 4-colour, 50×70 cm, hand-pulled, and printed at Urban Spree on Somerset 300 g/sm paper by Mother Drucker in a limited edition of 35 prints.

Both prints are available in Berlin at Urban Spree and online on our webstore. The exhibition of new paintings and drawings of the belgian duo goes on until 24.06 in our galerie space.

 



Hell’O Collective opens “Balance” at Urban Spree Galerie

Starting on Friday 01.06 at 19:00, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the Opening of “Balance“, a solo presentation of new works by the famed belgian duo Hell’O Collective in our main galerie space and their first solo show in Germany.

Running in parallel with their 10-year retrospective museum solo show at the BAM in Mons (“Enjoy the Show” at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Mons, Belgium, until 29.07.2018), “Balance” brings a brand new series of paintings on canvas and on paper to the Berlin audience.

For the Brussels-based duo, “Balance” reflects upon the constant search of the equilibrium between shape, color, and momentum in their painting practice and the need to achieve a new balance occurred as a renewed necessity after the hefty preparations for the museum show

Hell’O will also sign their new complete monograph “Untitled Oddyssey“, published in early May by CFC Editions.

Hell’O is a belgian artistic duo consisting of Antoine Detaille and Jérôme Meynen, active in murals as well as studio works and installations.

Several characteristics of their art indicate a filiation with the middle-age universe close to Jerome Bosch: an elegant and precise graphism, a taste for multiple, intertwined universes, and abundant references to a corpus of grotesque iconography, albeit perfectly mastered. Abstracted human bodies are among the many recurrent elements that are present in their paintings together with abstract, geometric signs, creating an overall rich personal mythology.

Urban Spree Prints will also release 2 screenprints specially made by the duo for the occasion.

DAMO SUZUKI
Former lead singer of the legendary and seminal german krautrock band Can, Damo, resident in Köln (De) since the 70s, has been performing since mid ´97 with his project DAMO SUZUKI´S NETWORK around the world with more than 7,000 different musicians in 43 countries. He will bring his project this year at the 3rd edition, and first summer one, of the Interkosmos festival. A festival focused on several forms of music: experimentation, electronic, krautrock, drone, post punk, impro.
Damo will perform with TAU from Berlin.

CUMMI FLU is the latest incarnation of the ever-changing multimedia illusionist Oliver Doerell. Born in Brussels, he was the driving force behind the electronica projects Dictaphone and SWOD, and a sound box in Raz Ohara’s Odd Orchestra.

There was once a pop music genre that was not actually a genre. It emerged in the late nineties and early 2000s. It was called ‘electronica’. This genre was no more a genre than ‘indie’ or even ‘pop’. Electronica was a term simply used to define club music, ambient or noise. It referred to a compartmentalized and, for the most part, friendly listening music that was not good to dance to. As a result, a wide range of musical styles came to be classified under this non-genre just because there was no other suitable classification at the time. And now Oliver Doerell is producing music that sounds like a late electronica manifesto.

BLUE CRIME’s stars have a gloomy shine, inspired by myths and dreams and parallel universes. Earth felt too low; space is the place. They started out as a glowworm in a dark atom shelter, and emerged as eerie moonpop, growing grittier in time. Call it moonpsych, noisefolk, call it earthquakes with guitars and vocal eclipses. Or just feel it, and call it nothing at all. Be it love or hate, dark or light… Blue Crime shows no
mercy for the sober and cold-hearted.
