French graffiti artist and illustrator Honet (b. 1972) started graffiti in 1988. Reputed for his experimental style, he influenced a whole generation of train writers across Europe.

« Protection II » is an exhibition about graffiti and perception, the visible and the invisible.

The practice of graffiti on trains is at the core of the life, experience, and art trajectory of Honet, viewed as a secret/sacred activity, and as such mysterious and impermanent.

The graffiti artist is a masked persona, cultivating the invisible, learning to move undetected, perfecting his camouflage to protect himself from hostile elements, finding secret passages in the heart of the city.

The practice of graffiti opens doors to other dimensions where the visible (the achieved graffiti piece that travels across rail lines) is only a short-lived expression of a practice that incorporates the whole soul, that comes from the inner self. Eternal wanderer of the Paris Catabombs, Honet nourishes his work with references from explorations, readings, historical & mystical elements and an esoterical imagery.

Guest artists : Pas de Chance

Pas de Chance is a duo composed of Akore and Se (SeOne), part of the LTD Crew (Lose, Tristesse et Dépression) co-founded by Honet in 2006 after an unfortunate trip to Milan. The duo will exhibit in the Urban Spree Galerie’s « Ecke ».

Heavy Mental: Nadja – Sannhet – Sum of R

Swamp Booking and Urban Spree presents
Heavy Mental concert series : #2

Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist Leah Buckareff active since 2005 and credited as one of the progenitors of the genres ‘drone doom’ or ‘metalgaze’—heavy atmospheric music which combines the darkness and volume of doom metal and industrial with the textures and melodicism of shoegaze and ambient/electronic music.

The project has released numerous albums on many different underground labels—Alien8 Recordings, Daymare Records, Robotic Empire, Hydrahead Records, Gizeh Records, and Important Records, to name a few—and have toured extensively with appearances in Europe, Japan, Russia, Australia/New Zealand, North and South America, including appearances at such festivals as SXSW, FIMAV, Roadburn, Donaufest, Le Guess Who, Incubate, and Unsound.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, the duo now resides in Berlin, Germany.

Sannhet have always been hard to classify. Since 2010, the Brooklyn trio’s played instrumental music that’s heavy and light, cinematic and intimate, dense but minimal. You could call them “post” something, “experimental metal,” or “math rock,” but none of that’s quite right and the band has thrown another
wrinkle into the mix with So Numb.
While they don’t write lyrics, they do write subtexts. They pen love letters, extended epistles, and suicide notes, all without words. With So Numb, Sannhet create a new
world out of very few ingredients.
The cover of Sannhet’s third album, So Numb, features a mother shielding her son’s eyes with her hands – an allegory depicting the protection one receives from their parents, but it isn’t meant to be sentimental.
As the mother shelters her child, she inadvertently creates a false sense of safety. The child, in turn, spends it’s life seeking comfort and escape in temporary solutions.
Though Sannhet meditate on life’s imperfect escapes, So Numb’s nine songs showcase the band facing
life’s pain and joy with their eyes wide open. The collection’s emotional landscape is one of existential
dread, melancholy, and loss – ammunition for escapists. Despite these existential conundrums, So Numb
has an uplifting, euphoric feel.

Switzerland’s Sum Of R R exists since 2008 and was created by Reto Mäder (URAL UMBO, RM74) to construct/deconstruct sound in ways that infest and cloud the interior of the mind. Sum Of R creates slow moving instrumental music with a sensibility for hypnotic and complex song structures.
Their intense and pulsating sound is influenced by lumbering doom, drone, post-metal, ambient, noiserock, psychedelic and cinematic post-rock. Sum Of R’s ritualistic take on expanding sound layers is deepened by the rawness of an unconventional metal atmosphere plunged into darkness, light and its reflection.
Their live performances as a duo are characterized by a cyclical process involving bass guitars, drums, effects, samples and drones to create a unique and dense whole which is more than the sum of its parts.
