VOWWS • Berlin (FREE SHOW)

 

VOWWS
+++FREE SHOW+++
08.06.2019 – Berlin Urban Spree
Einlass: 20:00 Uhr, Beginn: 21:00 Uhr

VOWWS ist ein, in Los Angeles lebendes, Death-Pop-Duo aus Australien. Ihr Debütalbum „The Great Sun“ erschien 2015 und wurde vom Freund und Mentor der Band Kevin S. McMahon in seinem New Yorker Atelier, einer alten umgebauten Scheune, produziert. „The Great Sun“ ist das Ergebnis einer intensiven und symbiotischen Verbindung zwischen McMahon und der Band. Eine Sammlung von düsteren und dunklen Death-Pop-Songs u.a. mit Feature der Elektro-Legende Gary Numan.

Mit ihrem zweiten Album „Under the World“ erschaffen VOWWS ein filmisches, stilvolles Gesamtkunstwerk mit unterschiedlichsten Einflüsse z.b. klassischer Western-, Electro-, Surf-Rock-, Metal- und Filmmusik.
Auch für „Under the World“ holten sich VOWWS Unterstützung von McMahon, jedoch spielte die Band selbst eine weitaus größere Rolle beim Produzieren und Mischen der Platte. Der zeitlose Einfluss von McMahon ist zwar immer noch vorhanden, jedoch verzichten VOWWS bewusst auf derbe Post-Punk Parts und lassen stattdessen Platz für stilvolle Hooks und klare Vocals. Das wird die Band endlich auch in Berlin auf der Bühne präsentieren – am 08.06. live im Urban Spree!

“Berlin-Praha Barter” Group Show opens on 16.05.2019 in Prague

After the first exhibition, titled “Praha Berlin Barter” (March/April 2019) which was hosted by Urban Spree in Berlin, the gallery is this time being hosted by Trafo Gallery in Prague in a new group exhibition called “Berlin Praha Barter“.

BERLIN PRAHA BARTER

Preview: 16.05.2019
Exhibition: 17.05. – 23.06.2019

Curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree)

In this second round, we have invited 11 visual artists of the Urban Spree family to exhibit artworks at Trafo Gallery:

 The artists are representative of the new Berlin scene that emerged since the Fall of the Wall, starting with the precursor – Jim Avignon – quite known for his painted decors of many of the Berlin squatted clubs of the early 90’s and large historic murals (East Side Gallery) and whose remixed cubist/pop art/Neue Sachlichkeit aesthetics are iconic of the Berlin art scene.
Going along the figurative trail, Marion Jdanoff (half of the duo Palefroi) develops a highly poetic and fairytale-like universe, fueled with middle age tales, strange characters, fabled animals in a rich palette of colors. Fabian Warnsing paints large-sized canvases in a faux-naïf style, creating still life paintings, urban landscapes and everyday scenes.
The graphite drawings of Lars Wunderlich are part of a series from 2017 titled “East German Realities”, whereby the artist applies his process of distortion and glitches to scenes witnessed in the Eastern parts of Germany where nationalism is still a vivid reality.

Sebas Velasco explores the remnants of the Eastern bloc in a series of oil paintings and drawings based on scenes from Yugoslavia and elsewhere, Plattenbau, old cars, graffiti, and neon hotel signs. An urban/architecture thematic which has been magnified over 20 years by EVOL with his stencils on outdoor electric boxes and on cardboard.

Going further, Hendrik Czakainski creates 3D large-scale post-architectural panels which are radical anatomical explorations of the urban body. His works are impressive, immersive, chaotic urban scenes captured from above, on a bird’s eye view perspective.

Besides figurative and architecture-inspired works, a strong line at Urban Spree has always been “post-graffiti abstraction”, i.e. using the codes, techniques, roots, flow and philosophy of graffiti, where the letter becomes an abstraction, a substance.

While Stohead is closer in some instances to the true form of the letter (calligraphy, handstyle, overwriting), he has always experimented beyond it, trying to deconstruct and dissolve the Letter in a post-graffiti approach. Theresa Volpp‘s practice is more focused on the very subject of abstract art and bears only a faint distance to graffiti, although some form of automatic writing exists in her work, in a pre-graffiti way, as if abstract art is trying to reconnect with a certain flow but before the invention of graffiti..

Christian August creates multiple layers of grey colors by erasing, scratching, repainting, and finally achieving a wall texture (in the scratchy meaning of Dubuffet and Brassaï in the early 20th century), then completing his work by a stunning dash of ultramarine color, the artist’s persistent signature. Johannes Mundinger has also strong roots in wall painting and creates delicate abstract works in subdued tones, large shapes and blocs, stunning and contemplative abstract landscapes.

Oscillating between abstract and figurative art, Berlin Praha Barter shows a diversity of approaches and styles, seemingly loosely connected but united by an undercurrent practice of wall painting and shared values.

—————————————————————————————————-

Urban Spree Galerie was created in 2012 in Berlin-Friedrichshain in 2012 as a 400 sqm “artist-run” space with the objective of discovering and promoting the emerging international wave of post-graffiti painters and artists, with a strong focus on local talents.

The gallery is an essential part of Urban Spree, a 1.700 sqm independent multi-cultural complex comprising a Biergarten, a concert room, a bookshop, 5 artist studios, a screen printing studio, itself set in a 70.000 sqm postindustrial creative compound in the heart of Berlin (R.A.W.).

The gallery benefits from its large urban grassroots ecosystem and offers its invited artists an ideal space for experimentation through ambitious on-site residencies and monthly exhibitions that usually involve painting the outside walls of the compound.

It is armed with these values of generosity and openness, shared with Trafo Gallery, that we together decided to initiate a gallery exchange.

Les Pleureuses – Chambre K38 Release show + Free Free Dom Dom

Free Free Dom Dom + Les Pleureuses record release show
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018
20H00 – 00H00 +
URBAN SPREE

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

*NEW EP* Chambre K38 is out on 01/10/18.

Daring the mix between lyrical. electro notes, punk and powerful rock. Their music explores and mixes genres.
The result is explosive: a harmonious musical chaos.  French settled in Berlin, they immerse themselves in this city, its caves and its artistic effervescence to constantly push the limits of their creativity and continue to extend their musical spectrum.

Chambre K38 illustrates their constant musical researches, their desire to push the limits, to invent new sounds, to mix genres and to cover the tracks.

It marks not only their installation in Berlin, but also a real change in training with the arrival of Nicolas and the integration of the electronic pad. Their mu­sical style and their concept has evolved.
Chambre K38 can be defined as an organized mess, harmoniously melding keyboard, guitar, bass, vocals and powerful rhythms.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Free Free Dom Dom is an electronic duo based out of Berlin with an admiring love for their city’s underground scene and an electric cynical vibe. Their sound often reminds us of some kind of Grimes and Tv on the Radio hybrid. The high pitched vocals of Little Voice matched with the powerful dragging rock style of Philippe Duval, really gave their music a sense of revelry.

Upcoming Show: “Étalage” by Palefroi

 

“Étalage: stand, stall, barrow,

display, window display, 

showcase, showing off

spreading out, falling flat on one’s face / on the floor”

 

Urban Spree Galerie invites the Berlin-based French artistic duo Palefroi for a month-long residency in our Berlin studio during the month of July, which culminates in a month-long solo show opening on Friday, August 3rd.

Damien Tran and Marion Jdanoff are two French artists currently based in Berlin. Their visual work as a duo is a constant negociation between their respective approaches.. One is formal and abstract, the other narrative and figurative. They are attached to a form of harshness in the lines, to generous proliferation, to spontaneity and wonkiness.

Palefroi is a framework embracing all of their practices: printmaking, self publishing, painting and animated drawings. It is a space of experimentation and collaboration but also a structure supporting both their work as a duo and as individuals.

Following Palefroi’s residency at Urban Spree in July 2018, their solo exhibition Étalage should consist of: wolves, people playing trumpets, a fake tiger, dancing dots, drums solo and wallpapers.

Urban Spree Prints and Palefroi will also be releasing 2 special edition 6-colour screen prints on the occasion of the exhibition. Both prints have been hand printed by the duo on the Urban Spree premises during their residency in July 2018. They will be available in our Berlin shop on the opening night and online thereafter.

Boy Harsher / Philipp Strobel (Additional Berlin Show)

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Boy Harsher (US) live

www.boyharsher.bandcamp.com

– Additional Berlin Show –

“Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance. Boy Harsher started in early 2013 under the name Teen Dreamz. The project was based on short stories written and read by Matthews then live scored by Muller. As the project matured the instrumentals became more dance influenced and Matthews’ delivery became more dynamic and spontaneous. In January of 2014 Teen Dreamz took on the moniker Boy Harsher.”
