Group Show: Narrative Urban Poland

narrative-urban-poland

Urban Art or Street Art has turned from youth culture to a recognized art form during the last years. Street Art is shown internationally in museums and foundations. Berlin forms a center of this still relatively young flow, artists from all over the world are visiting the city and they find an international audience here in town.

Urban Spree Galerie is presenting 4 prominent street artists from Poland: Zbiok (Wrocław), M-City (Gdansk), Otecki (Wrocław) and Magda Drobczyk (Katowice). They develop different styles but share the design of large-scale walls and a certain aesthetics that dominated by the choice of colors, designs and often a poetic touch and narrative threads.

Group Show Vernissage: Saturday, March 15th from 20:00
Exhibition: 16.03.14 – 06.04.14
Tuesday – Sunday: 12:00 – 19:00 | Free Entrance

Die Urban Spree Galerie in Berlin präsentiert: Narrative Urban Polen:

Urban Art, bzw Street Art hat sich in den letzten Jahren (Jahrzenten) aus dem Schattendasein der Jugendkultur zur anerkannten Kunstform entwickelt, die international in Museen und Stiftungen gezeigt wird. Berlin bildet dabei ein Zentrum dieser noch immer recht jungen Strömung, Künstler_innen aus aller Welt besuchen die Stadt und werden hier einem internationalem Publikum gezeigt.

Bei all diesen Ausstellungen, Projekten und Präsentationen kann dabei leicht übersehen werden, dass das für Berlin näheste Nachbarland schon lange über eine spannende Urban Art Szene verfügt. Der Fokus der Ausstellung richtet sich also auf Urban Artists, deren Postionen in Polen in vielen Ausstellungen gezeigt, in Deutschland jedoch  vor allem von der Szene wahrgenommen wurde.

Die vier Künstler+in stehen Beispielhaft für vier verschiedene Strömungen in der Urban Art, allen gemein ist jedoch die Gestaltung großformatiger Wände, sowie eine Ästhetik, die durch Farbwahl, Motiv und oft auch Umgebung eine poetische, erzählerische Anmutung erzielt.

Kazumoto Endo \ Facialmess \ MAAAA \ Purgist \ Krube.

Kazumoto Endo (Tokyo, Japan)

Since the mid-’90s, japanese noise artist Kazumoto Endo has released albums and eps under his own name and under the alias KILLER BUG. growing up in the ’80s, endo listened to british bands like THE CURE and THE SMITHS, then got turned on to groups such as PUSSY GALORE and BIG BLACK, and began attending live performances by influential noise bands including HANATARASH and HIJOKAIDAN. Endo was, however, unimpressed with how noise music came across on recordings. He wanted to learn to play something different and so took traditional bolivian music classes. It was during this time that Endo purchased the first noise record he was impressed by: MERZBOW’s Cloud cock 00 ground. Endo began buying equipment and making noise around 1990, in addition to continuing his bolivian music classes. Endo began recording in 1994 under the name KILLER BUG, with his first 7″ released on sweden’s releasing Eskimo label. He performed and recorded as KILLER BUG for a couple of years, but eventually dropped the alias. although he most often performs in Tokyo, Endo has also performed in the U.S., in 1995, 1997 and 2016. KAZUMOTO ENDO/ KILLER BUG has releases on labels from around the world, including releasing eskimo (sweden), self abuse, rrr, pinch- a-loaf (u.s.), alien8 recordings (canada), and freak animal (finland).

FACIALMESS (Tokyo, Japan)
Harsh noise project of british ex-pat Kenny Sanderson. Since 1997, Sanderson has been creating cut up harsh noise consisting of found sounds, industrial loops and stabs of percussion. FACIALMESS has released an impressive array of solo and collaborative efforts including work withwith SICKNESS, BASTARD NOISE, GUILTY CONNECTOR and SUPPRESSION. More recent work can be found on labels such as Opal tapes, Kitty play and No rent records. Effortlessly handling knife edge blasts of noise in between pounding sonic loops, sanderson is a master in the shredding and reassembly of his exclusive brand of cut-up harsh noise.
Expect an unmistakable and unforgettable style, blown-out distorted textures, over-the-top volume, sick high-energy passages, frantic cuts, drills, loops, subtle hints of heavy atmospherics…

MAAAA (Warsaw, Poland)
Russian expat Sergei Hanolainen is the conduit for the well oiled machine that is MAAAA; a critically acclaimed Warsaw based noise project that has undergone years of refinement and as a result, has become to play a pivotal role in the concurrent noise climate. MAAAA’s well rehearsed live shows exhibit merciless deliveries of heavy electronics and dizzying drones that induce a physical response not so dissimilar to G forces. As MAAAA continues to mature, his albums strike a blend of classic, neo and underground styles, of the industrial and of the musique concrète, that are progressive, inspired and precise. It is not often that you see an artist so in touch with their machine.

PURGIST (Kielce, Poland)
Dawid Kowalski is a sound artist, improviser, music publisher, culture animator, live event organizer and art activist specializing in radical avant-garde electronic music. an active member of the polish and international underground music community since the early 2000s. Founder of harshnoise.org (“we fight off tyranny of hate which decimates stupid people!”). PURGIST combines a variety of classic experimental music tropes such as object/tape manipulation, electroacoustic improvisation, industrial noise and combines them with extensive digital post-processing placing the end result in a musical context. PURGIST is an outlet for focused exploration of urban field recordings, digital artifacts, aural atmospherics and disjointed noise dynamics. His vivid, cinematic post- industrial harsh noise works have a prominent conceptual background based on a reflection upon personal vices and self-abusive obsessions.

Oranssi Pazuzu – Aluk Todolo – Cobalt

16681620_1370151299722631_4461425035955712240_n

Oranssi Pazuzu
“The trick is to avoid all the bands that are bragging about genre breaking or how mind blowing they are and just listen to Oranssi Pazuzu”. This quote from Fenriz’s radio show couldn’t have been a better spot on statement for the phenomenon that is Finland’s Oranssi Pazuzu.
Since their inception, Oranssi Pazuzu has never been satisfied to stick with a formula. Each album has seen the band expand upon its previous incarnation and then, like a supernova, blow it up and transform again into something recognizable but completely new. With their first two albums, they slowly built a fuzz for their unique take on black metal’s pscyhedelia and despite using this genre as a platform it was their third album, Valonielu (2013), that solidified the band’s position as one of the most forward-thinking and interesting metal bands and gave purists a ran for their money. With press and fans praising the brilliance of that album, their live shows established them even more to the point where their live experience could be compared to the ones of Pink Floyd, Swans and Neurosis. And that’s coming from everybody that witnessed them on their tours and festivals performances all around Europe.
Their return on 2016 with their fourth album, Värähtelijä, gives the band much more room to diverge and explore the vast regions of hypnotic progressive psychedelia and the nebulous outer limits of Scandinavian black metal. Songs explode with radiant ultraviolet color and plunge into the deep black darkness of innermost consciousness. If ‘Valonielu’ was the creation of a universe, ‘Värähtelijä’ is the magnification and expansion of its infinite boundaries. With the album ending up on many best albums of the year lists, and not only in the metal circles, 2017 will be the busiest year for the band on stage starting with the “Mental Possessed Tour” where the band brings with them 2 of their peers, Aluk Todolo and Cobalt (on their first European tour) on selected days and making this tour not to be missed!
The “Mental Possessed Tour” will also coincide with the reissues of Oranssi Pazuzu’s backcatalogue including their first 2 albums, which have been sold out since their release, an EP consisting of the band’s material from their 2010 split with Candy Cane and also a limited 10” vinyl with two unreleased songs, which will be sold only on their live dates!
Not meant for genre purists, Oranssi Pazuzu are on a trip all their own; modern electric pioneers on an expedition to unlock the keys to the hidden spaces all around and inside us.

————————–————————–————————–————

ALUK TODOLO is an instrumental power trio performing Occult Rock since 2004. Their music is a methodical exploration of the powers of musical trance. Part occult black metal fiend and part snide kraut menace, the band conjures rabid obsessive rhythms and abyssal disharmonic guitars, subliminal spiritualist vibrations and bizarre, magick summonings. ALUK TODOLO reduces psychedelic improvisation to a bare, telluric instrumentation, in which dry, spare percussion grievously mines the scrapes, shrieks and shimmer of mutated guitar and bass. The band’s sound is monolithic and stabbing, hypnotic but unpredictable, minimalist yet teeming: a dangerous, noxious coil of all things black.

The name ALUK TODOLO was brought back from a mountainous region of South Sulawesi in Indonesia, it’s an ancient religion with animist beliefs meaning «the Way of the Ancestors». The band toured in USA in 2009 and 2012, Southern Europe in May 2010 (France, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal), Northern Europe in April 2011 with MENACE RUINE (France, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Czech republik, Switzerland) and Eastern Europe in May 2013 with the one man band LUSSURIA from New York (Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republik, Poland, Austria, Hungaria, Croatia, Solvenia, Italia, France), around the Alps in June 2016 with SUM OF R from Switzerland (France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republik, Hungary, Austria). ALUK TODOLO opened for FAUST (German krautrock pioneers) in New York in October 2009. They have been invited by SUNN O))) to play the Roadburn Festival 2011 in the Tilburg – Netherlands and opened for them in June 2012. They played festivals such as Incubate (Netherlands), Stella Natura (usa), Dark Bombastic Evening (Romania), Mega Therion (Finland), Colmar Jazz Off (France), Luff (Switzerland), le Guess Who ? (Netherlands), Sonic Protest (France), Funkelfug (Austria), Amplifest (Portugal), Chaos Descends (Germany), and will play in 2017 the Stardust IV (New York USA) and the Roadburn (Netherlands).

An archive collection of rare recordings from their first decade will be released in 2017 as well as the 4 albums on tape on Seratusribu records from Indonesia.

Cobalt

War Metal is the most fitting title Cobalt could choose to kick off their career. There is a deep sense of struggle and urgency, a devastating cause that left absolute carnage through its path that the band’s music radiated since the time of their inception. Cobalt, as nature, is red in tooth and claw, and there is no desire of hiding it.

This struggle, this unbroken will to battle and conflict was peaked with the genre-defining Eater of Birds, a testament to the spirit of the US black metal scene. Pouring with aggression and oozing with a primal energy, Cobalt showcased a unique blend of bitter black metal, a traditional approach that was rehashed and in turn rejuvenated. The additions of Americana, folk and noise do not necessarily provide an experimental approach to black metal, but rather a different interpretation of its historic, pure form. The imagery of Hemingway on the cover of Gin makes perfect sense, depicting the literary background of Gin and its influence on Cobalt’s ethos: the perfection of one’s craft, the certainty and conviction to one’s belief and the stoic perspective.

Hemingway’s famously writes: “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” This could not be more true for Cobalt, who saw the departure of vocalist Phil McSorley in 2014. Mainman Erik Wunder did not allow this to become the end of the road for his black metal endeavors, and recruiting Charlie Fell (ex-Lord Mantis) has worked wonders for the band and the quality of their releases. In 2016 they proved that they belong at the very top of the food chain releasing what is their finest work in Slow Forever, a double album filled with all the elements that their glorious past has produced, but also with an eye staring at the future and the path that lays ahead. This is Cobalt at its best. Uncompromising, relentless, hungry, constantly hunting and out for blood.
