+ Support: February Montaine
18.06. Berlin, Urban Spree
Einlass: 20 Uhr | Beginn: 21 Uhr

Pixx ist dabei das musikalische Alter Ego von Hannah Rogers aus Chipstead – einem Ort im Süden Londons, an der Grenze zwischen Vorort und ländlicher Idylle. In eine Musik-liebende Familie geboren und inspiriert von der riesigen Plattensammlung ihres Vaters, wurde sie schon in jungen Jahren ermutigt ihre kreative Ader auszuleben und ihr Talent blieb nicht unentdeckt. Schon im Alter von 16 Jahren schrieb sie sich mit den ersten eigenen Songs an der renommierten The BRIT School ein, an der schon Künstler wie Adele, Amy Winehouse und King Krule zuvor die Schulbank gedrückt hatten. Erst nach dem Abschluss begann Hannah darüber nachzudenken ihre Musik auch zu veröffentlichen. Inspiriert von Künstlern wie Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell und Aphex Twin, arbeitet Hannah alleine an ihren Stücken, die sie unter dem Spitznamen ihrer Großmutter, Pixx, veröffentlicht.

Nachdem sie mit 4AD ein Label-Zuhause fand, veröffentlichte Pixx mit 19 ihre erste EP „Fall In“. Bestehend aus vier Folk-Songs, durchsetzt von Rodgers ganz eigenem, sehr persönlichem Songwriting über Herzschmerz und Selbstbeobachtung wurde die EP von Kritikern wie der Sunday Times („One oft he most arresting debuts oft he year“) gefeiert und brachte Pixx Slots auf dem Glastonbury und dem Latitude Festival ein, sowie im Vorprogramm von Acts wie Daughter, Glass Animals oder Lush!

Während sich die Welt um sie herum im Aufruhr befindet, sucht Rodgers in sich selbst nach Inspiration. Ihre Albträume aus der Kindheit, sowie spätere nervenzerrende Träume, schienen ihr perfekt als Metaphern zu den aktuellen Themen, um etwas Halt und Kontrolle zu finden, in einer anscheinend aus den Fugen geratenen Zeit. Anstatt über einfachen persönlichen Verlust zu schreiben, schreibt sie daher aus der Perspektive eines sozialen Kommentators, der sowohl in seinen Träumen, wie in der Wirklichkeit von immer mehr Unbehagen heimgesucht wird.

Im Juni 2019 kehrt die 23-jährige Britin zurück mit ihrem neuen Album “Small Mercies”.

Grand Boucle Exhibition

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to announce the Grand Boucle Exhibition, a collaborative show around vintage race track/fixie bicycles, including zine launch, display of bikes, bespoke saddles, and hand-pulled screen print editions!

Presented as a photographic documentation of racing bicycles dating back to 1903, graphic designer and bike enthusiast Christoph Reichert has produced a fresh looking magazine entitled ‘Grand Boucle’. This collection of imagery pulled together through modern design was the original catalyst to this project.

Now a silk screen production in celebration and tribute to the distinct design of vintage head badges in all their vibrant, metallic and colourful glory is the evolution to the Grand Boucle concept. The exhibition aims to take you through a visual narrative of vintage and contemporary design and their alliance to the racing/fixed gear bike. Whether you’re an enthusiasts or a novice to the world of racing/fixed gear bikes, the Grand Boucle exhibition will be captivating and enjoyable to visit. The launch of the Grand Boucle magazine will be the spirit of the exhibition and your first opportunity to see this unique publication. A selection of new and vintage bicycles will also be on display, some special bikes are even available for sale. In addition bespoke saddles made by the talented Mick Peel are to be exhibited as well as for sale.

Furthermore 10 posters of different vintage head-badge designs, all produced through silk screen printing by Berlin based company Mother Drucker will be on show. These prints, ranging from 2 through to 5 colour designs, will be for sale at affordable prices at the exhibition and afterwards online.

Mother Drucker is an independent Berlin-based print house located in the Urban Spree Ateliers.

Christoph Reichert, Chipsnchampagne, is a graphic designer based in Berlin.

Together they collaborate on the Grand Boucle Project.



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!
