We found – 13 articles for Look The Weird

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).

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”.

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 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.

Vacant #7

URBAN SPREE & CORPO 6 Present:

VACANT #7
LIVE SETS / SOUND VIDEO PERFORMANCES:
SLOW SLOW LORIS – somatic visual vocal noise music _ berlin
LA MUERTE ROJA – drone concrete noise improv ensemble _ berlin
JERK IN THE CAN – experimental industrial noise pop duo _ vancouver

URBAN SPREE | Revaler Straße 99 _ 10245 Berlin


Vacant is an open platform that investigates since 2012 the communal resonance of different languages.

Performance, experimental live set, video installations will create a different equilibrium, designing a synergy of references.

A public exorcism. An exposure of vital forces. Focusing on inner strength of each media, Vacant proposes an analysis of the art practices as a dense injection of reality into the unreality of daily life. Art as a practice and source of directions versus a daily existence cracked with countless crisis of perspectives.

VACANT #7 ARTISTS:

SLOW SLOW LORIS
somatic visual vocal noise music _ berlin

http://www.slowslowloris.com/
https://soundcloud.com/slow-slow-loris

“An epic, sweeping live performance using vocal melodies, samples, various instruments, live
looping and multiple pedal chains to coax the music out of the noise. They enter raw emotional imagination to give the nuances of one`s subconscious permission to come forth…a sensitive blend of music meeting noise, reaching a wide range of audiences and venues from clubs and festival stages to concert halls and art galleries.”

Slow Slow Loris use voice and electronics to search for the intersections where melody meets noise, emotional meets avant- garde, feminine meets industrial, non-rhythm meets accuracy, and raw meets craft. Following up their debut album, From Monster till Mourning on Staaltape, they look forward to releasing their next album, Of Heroes in Helium soon.

ANY (angela nina yeowell) transmits data through voice and noise music. Along with processed samples,
she plays broken melodies on misshapen instruments, and sings to the resulting waves of intensity and
silence, boredom and splendor. Her espionage of the sub-conscious can sometimes result in visuals, such as
the creation of, and performance with non-musical instruments and sonic costumes.

G6PD (Robert Heim) shapes sculptures of sound with unpredictable outcomes, like subconsciously painting
emotions. With a non-conceptual, experimental approach, he uses and abuses audio, destroys song
structures and music styles, and collages unexpected tunes that often lead into a sonic weird deep electro-
acoustic mess.

LA MUERTE ROJA
drone concrete noise improv ensemble _ berlin

https://soundcloud.com/corpo-6-recordings/syria-la-muerte-roja
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggz6hOj6KDMhttps://www.facebook.com/lamuerterojacorpo6/

La Muerte Roja, adopting different approaches – tonal, atonal, improv, noise – defines, ritualistically, in a high saturated media context – performance, installation, video installation – , a sacred area of being.

La Muerte Roja is an oxymoron. Death in life. And vice versa. And it means rebirth. A Circularity of simplicity.

For VACANT # 7 and for the first time live, La Muerte Roja will perform SYRIA, their last work – published in cassette by CORPO 6 recordings -. SYRIA, recorded in 2016, between Foggia – Apulia, South Est of Italy -, Rome and Berlin evokes the sacrality of a border, where the mystifications of the global power are taking place. And together it tries to embodied the ecstatic cadence of the middle est Zoroastrian rhythms.

La Muerte Roja ensemble, performing SYRIA, will be: Diego Ferri – flute and cassette, Angel Cervera – lute and pedals, Adolfo Spezzaferro – drums, Bianca Ringwald – piano, Fabio Campagna – objects and feedback on electric guitar.
La Muerte Roja will perform live scoring the exp-movie
: -1+1=0.

-1+1=0, shot by Fabio Campagna between 2015-2016 (Video, 41’42’’) closes a trilogy about Berlin. A personal diary through
the eterotopic, free interstices of Berlin in the attempt to present the nude factual – the unpredictability of reality. A route
trough the city. Through its autonomous, dirty, peripheral zones. An ideal map of the liminal spaces of Berlin.

An archetype emerges in the simplest of things. A communal sphere. A sharing, an harmonic unity. A community of
imagination and desire. Resembling the idea of the Mediterranean – medio terrae, the sea, core of our civilization that unifies
the opposites, the North and the South, the Ovest and the East – .

A symbol of Berlin and ultimately of our contemporary
condition. The convergence of the antinomic edges of reality into one single, organic, shape. A sacred uterus that unifies,
combining opposites into the centrality of symmetry. The relation and the equation between opposites is finally exposed – as
the livid fundamental truth. The city reflects upon itself and creates a vacuum that defies contradictions and promote the
inclusion of the different.

JERK IN THE CAN
experimental industrial noise pop duo _ Vancouver

http://jerkinthecan.com/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR1TalUYMMo

“Jerk in the Can showcase a balance of eerie dream pop — reminiscent of Australia’s HTRK — that divulges into aggressive industrial noise, taking direct influence from Skinny Puppy or early Nine Inch Nails, sprinkled with an aesthetic suitable for an Insane Clown Posse worship band.

Jerk in the Can have several videos posted to their website, some are performance videos of the band, some are purely
performance art. Synthesizers, drum machine, samples, vocals from Marc and sometimes accompanied by saxophone.

However, the understated, minimalist synthesizer punk Jerk in the Can’s duo create on Big Crime Baby -their last album – goes over much more smoothly than you’d imagine. The eight songs on the album show diversity in sound, structure as well as varying sonic ideas.

Out of damp, reverb drenched, bit-crushed pools of darkness come bouncy analog arps, cheesily dreamy synth pads and big minimal drum machine grooves. These elements coat the clear vocals, which switch from ghostlty ballads and awkward raps to heavily modulated screams of agony.”

CORPO 6, after three years – 2012 / 2014 – in Herzbergstrasse 55, Lichtenberg – area objectified as an elementargedanken
(A. Bastian)- the zone of transmutations – , has been started a nomadic gnosis troughout Berlin.

CORPO 6 is an art project by Fabio Campagna which focuses through a series of crossing media and site specific projects, on
the examination of the concept of limen – border in Latin – within the articulation of the city.
