Hell’O Collective opens “Balance” at Urban Spree Galerie

Starting on Friday 01.06 at 19:00, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the Opening of “Balance“, a solo presentation of new works by the famed belgian duo Hell’O Collective in our main galerie space and their first solo show in Germany.

Running in parallel with their 10-year retrospective museum solo show at the BAM in Mons (“Enjoy the Show” at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Mons, Belgium, until 29.07.2018), “Balance” brings a brand new series of paintings on canvas and on paper to the Berlin audience.

For the Brussels-based duo, “Balance” reflects upon the constant search of the equilibrium between shape, color, and momentum in their painting practice and the need to achieve a new balance occurred as a renewed necessity after the hefty preparations for the museum show

Hell’O will also sign their new complete monograph “Untitled Oddyssey“, published in early May by CFC Editions.

Hell’O is a belgian artistic duo consisting of Antoine Detaille and Jérôme Meynen, active in murals as well as studio works and installations.

Several characteristics of their art indicate a filiation with the middle-age universe close to Jerome Bosch: an elegant and precise graphism, a taste for multiple, intertwined universes, and abundant references to a corpus of grotesque iconography, albeit perfectly mastered. Abstracted human bodies are among the many recurrent elements that are present in their paintings together with abstract, geometric signs, creating an overall rich personal mythology.

Urban Spree Prints will also release 2 screenprints specially made by the duo for the occasion.

Urban Spree Galerie presents Jim Avignon at Berliner Liste

During the Berlin Art Week (14-17 September 2017) and in addition to the “Metamorphosis” exhibition currently on display at the galerie, Urban Spree presents a solo show of Jim Avignon at the Berliner Liste in Postbahnhof.

Under the title “Permanent Hello“, the Berlin-based artist develops the themes of his previous show at Urban Spree called “Permanent Jetlag” around internet and the overconsumption of images around paintings and large-scale interactive installations.

Jim Avignon‘s body of work for “Permanent Hello“ is about the balancing act of virtual life and real life. He depicts how the internet and social media have gradually changed society, and he also addresses our tragic, and often comical attempts to keep up with technology. On the one hand the world is getting smaller yet in our minds it keeps getting bigger, making it difficult to be everywhere at the same time.

Avignon’s narrative motives are a potpourri of political and societal topics, art, pop culture and characters from fairytales and fables. His paintings and installations serve as a stage for diverse protagonists from figuration, cartoons, anime and a fantasy world. Animals embody the human condition while the unknown lurks behind a façade of cheerfulness.

In Avignon‘s fantasy world, interchangeable freaks from the catalogue of postmodern society stand around, as their lively inanimate facial expressions reveal a mix of emotions, boredom, indecisiveness and resignation.

Sampling, cover versions and epiphenomena, like gamification, are central concepts in his creative work, they are references to the conflicting poles of visual art, music, mass media and the industry.

 

Jim Avignon has been living and working in Berlin for more than 20 years. In the 1990s he adorned clubs with his decorations and became known as the ‚painter of the techno scene‘. In 2013 he unleashed controversy when he staged a flashmob to paint over his landmark mural on the East Side Gallery without permission. Velocity and change have always been key issues in his creative work. The title of one of his first exhibitions was “highspeedworld.” In 1993 he already titled a painting “spoilsport in the internet.”
