We found – 3 articles for Forensic Architecture

Hendrik Czakainski returns to Urban Spree with his 3rd solo show “SWITCH-OVER”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “SWITCH-OVER“, the third solo exhibition of the Berlin-based visual artist Hendrik Czakainski at Urban Spree Galerie.

Hendrik Czakainski’s materia prima is the urban matter captured at different stages of dereliction. Adopting a bird’s eye view, the artist creates large-scale post-architectural panels which are dark anatomical explorations of the urban body.

The artist becomes a forensic architect, collecting evidence of disasters, past, present and future, incorporating them in surreal compositions of large proportions, creating 3-dimensional landscapes which have become void of human presence and frightfully beautiful at the same time. His creations bring us to a state of contemplation and fascination, owing to the combination of shape and colour.

His monumental cuts, holes, and excisions to his fantastic architectural matter reach us beyond the scope of architecture and strip down those man-made artefacts to the minimum, lay them bare, and essentially on the brink of abstraction.

In SWITCH-OVER, the artist distantiates himself from the highly densified housing settlements he has been creating in the past years to pursue a more radical approach. His apocalyptic tableaux give away few clues as to when the mutations happened, what exactly happened, how was it even possible to switch from one state to the next, and which situation we are actually in, leaving the spectator forging his own clues. Are we investigating a foregone reality, are we already processing the next move, or are we trapped in between ?

In his new compositions, we ask ourselves if humanity is still part of the global equation or if the tipping point has been already reached; if a reversal is even possible.

Most works of the show are constructed in two or three parts, creating a dynamic impulse, searching for life in interstitial space, infusing tension, and establishing a mutual dialog, a new social contract of what’s left.

Night Shift ft. Peine Perdue

𝔉𝔬𝔯𝔢𝔫𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔰 presents: Night Shift
SATURDAY, JUNE 30TH, 2018
23H30 – 06H00+
URBAN SPREE

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

2 rooms, 4 DJs, 1 live concert, 3 drag performers, 2 shows.
On the program: Peine Perdue LIVE, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave over two floors.

For its fourth edition, Night Shift celebrates the summer with the darkest cast of international performers.
The live stage will be taken over by friends of Forensics collective, having performed at Tech Noire, our sister party in Paris: Peine Perdue.

An emblematic duo of the French minimal wave scene, Peine Perdue has since 2011 been spreading a melancholic universe rooted in cinematographic phantasmagoria, streamlined electronic architectures and a spectral romantic vein. Over five albums (released on the labels Kernkrach, Cold Beats and Medical Records, Electronic Emergencies) and four tours that led them all over Europe and to Russia and Canada, Stéphane Argillet’s cold and synthetic compositions (also member of the group La Chatte), carried by the enigmatic and sensual texts of Coco Gallo have created a universe of its own and immediately recognizable.
Peine Perdue will be sharing their new album “Tokyo” for the first time in Berlin.

At the DJ booths, our resident DJs Al Niklaus and Inept Pernicious will be joined by two special guests.
A staple of industrial and noise music, producer and head of the prominent rhythmic noise party Drone Berlin: A/ONA; and producer and resident DJ of minimal and goth emblematic party TIQ Berlin: Licia.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.

On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by two very special guests: all the way from Manchester, the greyscale Goddess of the House of Gorgeous: Liquorice Black; and our very own bearded delight: Bambi Mercury. They will bring you the most extravagant show you have ever seen and bring you the darkness every goth much needs in these summer times.

Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.

We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience

Free entrance before 1AM to drag queens, drag kings, club kids and the most extravagant batcave looks
