Monumenta Leipzig: Intelligence-of-Many

Urban Spree will be associated to the first Monumenta that will happen in Leipzig for 6 full weeks starting on 01.09.

Hosted on the post-industrial grounds of Pittlerwerke, a former ensemble of machinery factories developing 36.000 sqm, the playground of Monumenta will unfold on 6000 sqm of pure industrial bliss with many artists invited in the field of urban art, contemporary art, music, performances, talks and workshops.

Martha Cooper, 1UP Crew, Hendrik Czakainski, Victor Ash, Various & Gould, Marina Zumi, are among the 140 artists invited by the curators Denis Leo Hegic and Jan Fielder for the first edition.

This edition’s main theme is “Intelligence-of-Many”, a collaborative approach to the interactions between the urban landscape and art, urban art and contemporary art, and of course amongst the artists themselves, culminating in the giant installation “Monument-of-Many”.

RAWS: #Neograffism

Urban Spree Galerie presents “#Neograffism“, the first solo show of the Berlin-based post-graffiti artist Kai “RAWS” Imhof with Urban Spree.

In “#Neograffism”, a term coined by the artist as being representative of his studio philosophy, RAWS strips down his years of graffiti practice and complexity build-up to lay bare the basic essence of graffiti through color and shape in a visually stunning arrangement of colors, contrasts, and gradients.

RAWS explores the tipping point where the core aesthetics of graffiti, after being deconstructed and re-arranged, becomes acceptable as a form of art while retaining its purity. The artist uses a mixed technique in his studio works, using both the spray can and the acrylic brush, as a hybridation of both worlds, the studio and the outdoor.

When it comes to design, I try to combine my preferences for letters, graphics and minimalism in my work. Many of the works were done using acrylic paints and spray cans. The use of these media also emphasizes the duality of graphics and graffiti. In my canvases I have mostly worked with gradients. These are created exclusively with aerosol and can be a symbol of the movement and transience of graffiti.

In his “Black Series”, writing his name becomes a subdued background while the colorful gradients are windows to his artistic world.

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 (b. 1981 in Neubrandenburg, GDR) is a German post-graffiti artist, member of the 9-member street art crew “The Weird” (Nychos, Low Bros, DXTR, Vidam…) under the moniker “Look the Weird”.

Besides spraypainting/wallpainting and graphic design, Lars is an accomplished painter. “What are we looking for?” is his first solo exhibition with Urban Spree Galerie.
