Lars Wunderlich: “What Are We Looking For?” Solo Show Opening

Urban Spree Galerie presents “What Are We Looking For?”, a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich a.k.a. “Look the Weird”.

The exhibition will kick off during Gallery Weekend Berlin with an Opening on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 18:30 in presence of the artist.

The exhibition is the outcome of a 3-month Art Residency at Urban Spree.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

Lars Wunderlich: What Are We Looking For?

Urban Spree Galerie presents “What Are We Looking For?“, a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, integrates economic cycles, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

Urban Spree Arkaden Jam

arkadenjam-4

3 years ago, all the arcades with their reddish background, tropical style and weird portraits under Warschauer Brücke were fully repainted by our homies in 2 days of happy painting.

At that time, we didn’t know if the paintings would stay or be covered owing to some real estate development.

3 years after, the spot has seen numerous street artists painting arcades and leaving a mark at Urban Spree.

Our Tel Aviv homie Klone was the first to solo paint an arcade 3 years ago and this move triggered the first spontaneous Arkaden Jam a few days later.

3 years later, Klone is back to Berlin and altogether, we’ll paint all the arcades again.

Urban Spree’s Arkaden Jam will happen on Saturday and Sunday, July 18th and 19th with live music provided by the Urban Spree Summer Sessions.

Participating artists for the 2015 edition include:

Zero Cents * Wurstbande * Vidam * Steffen Mischke * Rylsee * Patu * Pablo Benzo * Otto Baum * Nils Leimkühler * Mik Shida * Mafia-Tabak * Lorio * Look * Knarf * Klone * Kidcash * Johannes Mundinger * Fresh Max * Dxtr * Christoph Rode * Caro Pepe *  Boing * Andrea Wan * Addison Karl * Above * 44flavours
