Native Melbournian singer, guitarist and songwriter Ed Fraser relocated to Berlin from Australia in 2013, founding the Berlin-based post punk band HEADS. with two native Germans in early 2014. Heads. released two critically acclaimed LPs – S/T (2015) and Collider (2018) – with label releases in Europe, Australia and the USA, extensively touring Europe and North America with bands the likes of Metz, Protomartyr, Nothing, Young Widows, Daughters and many more.

Ed has now expanded his musical repertoire with his debut solo EP ‘Ghost Gums’, out via This Charming Man Records in September 2019. Recorded over one week in Berlin with a dynamic band including Spike Rogers on drums and Rosa Mercedes on bass, plus guest musicians including Paul Seidel and Peter Voigtmann of seminal German band The Ocean, on Ghost Gums Ed explores a more personal side. Here Ed’s deep vocal expresses somber and direct lyricism amongst fluid, vibrant and at times more experimental instrumentation and vocal layers. The songs pick up, things get bendy, and from beginning to end Ghost Gums delves into themes of loss and romance as an exploration of new and uncharted territory for Ed as a songwriter.

Pixx

 

Pixx
+ Support: February Montaine
18.06. Berlin, Urban Spree
Einlass: 20 Uhr | Beginn: 21 Uhr

Pixx ist dabei das musikalische Alter Ego von Hannah Rogers aus Chipstead – einem Ort im Süden Londons, an der Grenze zwischen Vorort und ländlicher Idylle. In eine Musik-liebende Familie geboren und inspiriert von der riesigen Plattensammlung ihres Vaters, wurde sie schon in jungen Jahren ermutigt ihre kreative Ader auszuleben und ihr Talent blieb nicht unentdeckt. Schon im Alter von 16 Jahren schrieb sie sich mit den ersten eigenen Songs an der renommierten The BRIT School ein, an der schon Künstler wie Adele, Amy Winehouse und King Krule zuvor die Schulbank gedrückt hatten. Erst nach dem Abschluss begann Hannah darüber nachzudenken ihre Musik auch zu veröffentlichen. Inspiriert von Künstlern wie Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell und Aphex Twin, arbeitet Hannah alleine an ihren Stücken, die sie unter dem Spitznamen ihrer Großmutter, Pixx, veröffentlicht.

Nachdem sie mit 4AD ein Label-Zuhause fand, veröffentlichte Pixx mit 19 ihre erste EP „Fall In“. Bestehend aus vier Folk-Songs, durchsetzt von Rodgers ganz eigenem, sehr persönlichem Songwriting über Herzschmerz und Selbstbeobachtung wurde die EP von Kritikern wie der Sunday Times („One oft he most arresting debuts oft he year“) gefeiert und brachte Pixx Slots auf dem Glastonbury und dem Latitude Festival ein, sowie im Vorprogramm von Acts wie Daughter, Glass Animals oder Lush!

Während sich die Welt um sie herum im Aufruhr befindet, sucht Rodgers in sich selbst nach Inspiration. Ihre Albträume aus der Kindheit, sowie spätere nervenzerrende Träume, schienen ihr perfekt als Metaphern zu den aktuellen Themen, um etwas Halt und Kontrolle zu finden, in einer anscheinend aus den Fugen geratenen Zeit. Anstatt über einfachen persönlichen Verlust zu schreiben, schreibt sie daher aus der Perspektive eines sozialen Kommentators, der sowohl in seinen Träumen, wie in der Wirklichkeit von immer mehr Unbehagen heimgesucht wird.

Im Juni 2019 kehrt die 23-jährige Britin zurück mit ihrem neuen Album “Small Mercies”.

Beyond the Streets L.A.

Beyond the Streets is Roger Gastman’s follow-up show to Art in the Streets, the graffiti and street art retrospective that broke MoCA Los Angeles’ attendance record with 220,000 visitors.

7 years since the MOCA’s groundbreaking exhibition, Roger Gastman invites 100+ artists to showcase their art and create immersive installations over 4000 sqm of industrial indoor and outdoor space in Los Angeles for what will surely become 2018’s most ambitious show: Beyond the Streets.

Beyond the Streets will be opening in Los Angeles on May 6, 2018. Gastman will not only be looking into the roots and historical figures of Graffiti and Street Art, but also take an in-depth look at just how expansive street culture has become in the worlds of contemporary art, photography and other mainstream pop and art movements.

Beyond the Streets will focus on artists with a documented history of mark making and rule breaking as well as a current, robust studio practice primarily derived from the graffiti and street art movements.

Beyond the Streets is not intended to be an historical retrospective but rather an examination of cultural outlaws who embody the spirit of the graffiti and street art culture. The exhibition includes well known artists whose work is influenced or inspired by these risk takers and whose efforts have elevated the movement to new heights.

Among the installations, we can mention a handball court complete with site-specific artwork by famed NYC artist Lee Quiñones drawing inspiration from his lion mural in 1982, FAILE’s Temple, is a highly interactive, life size construction of ceramic, steel, mosaics and prayer wheels that re-conceives historical references from sacred structures that invite play and contemplation from the audience, as well as a historical recreation of the Venice Pavilion, the legendary graffiti and skate destination in Venice Beach, in partnership with adidas Skateboarding.

Roger Gastman is a curator, graffiti historian, urban anthropologist and collector. Gastman founded and co-published Swindle magazine with Shepard Fairey, co-authored The History of American Graffiti and co-produced the Oscar-nominated Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

 



Opening of Toums’ solo show “Primitive Acids”

Urban Spree Galerie presents « Primitive Acids » a photographic exhibition by Toums from 20.10 to 12.11.2017. The Opening Reception will be held on Friday, October 20th from 19:00 to 22:00.

« Primitive Acids » is the first German solo show of the French experimental analog photographer Thomas Gosset a.k.a. Toums.

Wandering between his native Bordeaux and Berlin, Toums redefines the medium of analog artistic photography by attacking his negatives with acids, ink, paint and other physical alterations and combining his skillsets with a dark contemporary mythology.

Working in darkroom and strictly excluding all forms of modern technique, his practice lurks in the footsteps of the late 19th century pioneers and early 20th century surrealist avant-gardes.

Portraits are his preferred genre. Toums destructures them until they achieve the transmutated vision that the artist has assigned to them. Like a deus ex machina, the photographer creates the portrait with his camera and subsequently creates the final image through his manipulations ex-post.

Utterly disrespectful of the medium, desacralizing it in order to provide a new meaning, Toums is a rare breed of an iconoclast photographer, with filiation looking towards Joel-Peter Witkin, Pierre Molinier, and Roger Ballen.

His direct and deadly intervention on the film, the materia prima of his work, procures a highly unstable result. Soon to be destroyed by acids, slowly corroding the matter, the films are revealed in the darkroom process and printed on silver gelatin. As the film returns to dust, the portraits become fugitives, trying to escape their own fate, living in a printed dimension and refusing mortality. It is no accident that most Toums compositions are building a new mythology with some elements borrowed from the Greek corpus of myths.

« I destroy my own films with the intention of entering in the very heart of the photosensitive material, which allows me to have a direct control over the frozen reality that I destructure at will. The goal being to understand this matter as painting with the intention of pushing back the normal process of photography to expand my own field of investigation and thus regain an imaginative and narrative freedom. For years I wanted to freeze absurd moments in reality. »
