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.

Look (The Weird/Peachbeach) x Low Bros

Painted near the back garden of Urban Spree in the Astra/Suicide Club passageway, and most likely to be seen by partygoers getting out from Suicide Circus in the early morning hours, ‘Hangover’s Hot Summer Nights’ is a collaborative piece between Look (Peachbeach/The Weird) and the Low Bros realized in June 2013.

The other half of Peachbeach, Vidam, was in the meantime sketching his piece with Rylsee, a mural that was  painted in the next few days in the Urban Spree Artist Wall (covered here).

Urban Spree Galerie at Urvanity Art Fair

Urban Spree Galerie will participate to the 3rd Edition of Urvanity Art (28.02-03-03.2019) at COAM in the center of Madrid.

The fair is dedicated to urban contemporary arts and for its first participation to a Spanish art fair, the gallery has designed on 60 sqm a program with 9 artists, mainly based or linked to Berlin, as well as a solo show of works from Hendrik Czakainski

As for the graffiti part, we are showing photographic works from Martha Cooper/1UP of the acclaimed series “One Week with 1UP”, whose exhibition about the Berlin-based graffiti vandal crew was created at Urban Spree in May 2018 and toured worldwide ever since.

Cpt_Olf is joining the roster as well with an iconic image about the Berlin Kidz/Os Cururu.

Bisco Smith (NYC) and Sicoer (Krakow) will be showing  their calligraffiti/handstyle skills, both on canvases as well as on paper, through a series of medium-sized inks.

EVOL is a German artist renowned for his detailed stencils on cardboard, his large installations, and his outdoor works on electric boxes, depicting Berlin cityscapes and houses, Plattenbau, and the constant evolution and fragility of the metropolis.

We will also be showing new works on paper from Marion Jdanoff (the half of of French duo Palefroi) and from Victor Ash, adding some portraits painted by Anthony Lister under the influence of Picasso during his Berlin residency at Urban Spree in September 2018.

Last but not the least, we will introduce 3 new paintings from Lars Wunderlich (a.k.a. Look The Weird) as a preview to his upcoming solo show with the gallery in April 2019.

Please contact the gallery ahead of the fair with any questions or requests you may have.

Music for the lost: HOLYGRAM‘s music blends post-punk and new wave with Krautrock and shoegaze elements into a headstrong, multi-layered and thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the 1980s, including a resolute look to the future: driving, dark and full of catchy moments. The wide range of influences of the five band members, who got together in Cologne’s vibrating musical landscape in 2015, are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU!. Their unpretentious approach to their own icons proves that references to the past must always be future-oriented, too. Previously impossible-to-combine elements come together cleverly to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

Bonnie Li -Wǒ Men- ALBUM Release PARTY

Icons Creating Evil Art présents:

Dark Pop / Trip Hop / Electro-Cabaret

On the occasion of the release of her debut album “Wǒ Men”
Bonnie Li will throw her release party at Urban Spree on the 14th of Feb!

“In Mandarin ‘wǒ’ means I-myself, ‘wǒ men’ is translated into we-us, and if you skip the space in between it gives you ‘women’, I wanted to play around with that.”

Written over the course of the last year, ‘Wǒ Men’ was arranged with Elia M Sycomor and produced by regular collaborator Paolo Pizzuto in their new home in Berlin, setting the start of a new evolution for the artist.
With the use of further instrumentation and adopting a more Dark-Pop aesthetic, Bonnie Li sees the release as the start of a new beginning for her, experimenting further and moving away from her trip-hop-inspired origins.
“Wǒ Men” looks to be a beacon of coveted thoughts, speaking opinions that you know you shouldn’t, channelling insecurity in a search for yourself. It’s organic, dynamic and fragile, distorted as a mirror to the artist’s emotions and fears, sensitive and dark.

Singer/composer & multi-lingual polymath, Bonnie Li has already been praised by the likes of Clash Magazine EARMILK, Rolling Stone Italia and The Line Of Best Fit.

SEE YOU THERE Beautiful Freaks ♥
