In 2013, he was awarded the jury price of the Berliner Kunstverein. Since 2012 he is a resident artist of the Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin.

Orsten Groom: Chrome Dinette

From October 23rd to January 23rd 2021, Urban Spree Galerie is pleased to offer the painter Orsten Groom his first solo exhibition in Germany, “CHROME DINETTE”.

 

As a radically independent and self-managed artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, between alternative circles and museum institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over thirty works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a crazed round about the links binding Sigmund Freud and Moses through Ancient Egypt & Sick Poodles – all under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A vast Recapitulative Selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

 

ORSTEN GROOM (CHROME DINETTE): “YAHVOLCANISMUS” – (sketch)

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as “Post-Historical Cave Art”.

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: “Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future“.

Apocalyptic Frescoes, saturated with Creatures drawn from the Memory Styx by Demented Talmudic Investigations, Carnivalesque Recapitulation of History from the Flow of Origins and Art History – His Painting roars on Large Canvases populated with Figures entangled by Mythological and Grotesque Archetypes, Dances Macabres gleaned by a Language Detective, an Amnesiac Epileptic Archaeologist. Its Material is Dense, Volcanic, inhabited like the ancient Livers of a Divinatory Ritual.

«This turmoil is similar to the one I feel in the Grottos of Lascaux or Chauvet, in front of El Greco or Picasso paintings, or, in the 20th century, facing the essential work of Gérard Gasiorowski», wrote Olivier Kaeppelin, Curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR – For which the Archaeological Park of Pompeii itself has send a complaint.

Orsten Groom experienced in 2002 an aneurysm that left him amnesic and epileptic. He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and Le Fresnoy in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards: Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) and Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). The reputed paint manufacturer Marin manufactures a colour to his name, the Pink Groom.

He is also a musician, author of collections of English cubist poems, filmmaker (Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the 2011 Côté-Court festival) and since 2012 author of the video cycle Les Ballets Russes.

He has collaborated with curators and authors Olivier Kaeppelin and Paul Ardenne, the filmmaker Guy Maddin, the translator and poet André Markowicz, as well as the writer Boris Wolowiec.

ORSTEN GROOM: “MÂÂT” (Nocturne) – 210 x 140 cm – Oil on Canvas – GXXI

Implanted in the heart of Berlin, the Urban Spree Galerie has been for more than 8 years an unavoidable reference in urban arts, understood as a manifestation of a post-parietal art, which inscribes graffiti at the heart of its practice, on a large scale.

The opening will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa

CHROME DINETTE is Burning Divan, Hypnotic Sphinx and Sick Tongue of the Unpronounceable God.

“WALLS” exhibition extended to March 14th, 2020

We are extending the “WALLS” Exhibition by a fortnight, until Saturday, March 14th, 2020.

“WALLS” is a collective exhibition curated by Cyrille Gouyette and Fabrice Douar (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) with an additional curation by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin) and featuring 30 international artists from the comics and street art scenes.

Expanding the historical timeline and geographical scope beyond the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, “WALLS” explores the notion of the wall, from Antiquity to contemporary issues, viewed through the lens of artists committed to the public space and whose work is closely related to walls.

The catalogue of the show can be purchased here.

WALLS

Wednesday-Saturday // 12:00-18:30

Free Entry

—————————————————————————

The next exhibition will be a presentation of recent works on canvas by polish calligraffiti artist Sicoer. Created through different sessions between his hometown of Krakow and a residency in Berlin, “Explorations” is the artist’s most ambitious exhibition to date.

 



WALLS

For their first show of 2020, Urban Spree Galerie presents « WALLS », a collective exhibition featuring 30 international artists and dedicated to the notion of the « wall ». 

Curated by Fabrice Douar and Cyrille Gouyette (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) and co-curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin), « WALLS » invites prominent artists from both the comics scene and the street art scene to create graphic works of fiction related to walls, interpreted either as simple architectural elements, ominous symbols of segregation, canvases and vessels to convey meaning, textures, or imaginary playgrounds and labyrinths.

While some antique artefacts appear in the show to testify of their immortal, silent presence, in the 21st Century, the Minotaur doesn’t wait at the center of his realm but has clearly moved outside, demultiplied its presence, and is building more walls.

The exhibition’s direction is therefore resolutely multifaceted, contemporary and graphic-oriented, spanning several topographies (Europe, South Korea, Middle East, Hong Kong, Cuba…), and art forms (painting, photography, installations, videos).
