LETTERS

Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents « LETTERS », an international group show featuring 10 artists engaged in the practice of urban calligraphy. 

The Exhibition will take place starting on Friday, April 23rd, 2021 at Urban Spree Galerie and online

 

 

LETTERS focuses on European and Mediterranean artists whose practice is strongly influenced by their graffiti years, past or current, their passion for painting, lettering, abstraction, and the use of brushes.

This first chapter covers artists nourished  by the classical European calligraphy tradition (roman, runic or cyrilic scripts) as well as arabic calligraphy, but first and foremost by their contemporary practice of muralism and abstraction: muralism or « street art » is an integral part of the practice of « calligraffiti » – the holy alliance of calligraphy and the urban landscape, shaped by graffiti, whereby speed, precision and abstraction converge to give birth to this particular urban flow.

Whereas letters and alphabets are consubstantial to graffiti, urban calligraphy diverges with the use of a particular reference to traditional calligraphy and use of specific contact tools like brushes instead of aerosols.

Artists are using calligraphy as a materia prima. However, the final result is a substantial evolution from the traditional corpus of calligraphy with serious inroads into abstraction, where letters are turned into abstracted shapes and signs, dissolved, essentialized, obfuscated and cyphered.

LETTERS is a show about post-calligraphy and post-graffiti. About signs, mutations, strokes and freedom.

Last Dominion Lost / Anemone Tube / Dead Normal

13 EURO PRESALE 15 EURO ON THE DOOR

LAST DOMINION LOST AUS/DE

Last Dominion Lost has existed since 1992, formed out of the ashes of Merge (a project created by Dominik Guerin, founding member of SPK, and Jon Evans).
With the inclusion of John Murphy (ex-SPK, Whitehouse) the transition was complete. In April of 1992 the recording sessions for what was to become „The Tyranny of Distance“ began (released on Germany’s Tesco Records).

16 years later, the opportunity arose to reform the slumbering project. With the welcome addition of Ash Wednesday (Crashlands, Einstürzende Neubauten) and Julian Percy (Ratbag) the reactivated band began recordings that would ultimately surface on the 2014 album « Towers Of Silence ».

After the sudden tragic death of core member John Murphy in 2015, veteran industrial musician Till Brüggemann became the third member, bringing a new palette of sounds to the creative process. The group are currently finalising their fifth album.

ANEMONE TUBE DE
Anemone Tube was founded 1996 in South-Germany; since 2010 based in Berlin. The audio works of Anemone Tube are a unique blend of dark ambient, noise, industrial and sound-art with a strong psychogenic impact. The use of constantly shifting and altering sounds and moods is possibly one of the most intriguing things about the audio creations of Anemone Tube. Since 2007 Anemone Tube has been working on « The Suicide Series ». To this field recordings made in China and Japan build a conceptional basis. In a poetic way Anemone Tube combines analytical realism of the phenomenal world with buddhist psychology and nihilist rhetoric influenced by the works of Pier Paolo Pasolini, H.P. Lovecraft, J.G. Ballard and Hayao Miyazaki.

Releases on Auf Abwegen (DE), Raubbau/Ant-Zen (DE), Peripheral Records (GB), Silken Tofu (BE), Black Horizons (USA), La Esencia (ES) and The Epicurean (DE). Live performances since 2008 with Dave Philips (CH), Machinefabriek (NL), Post Scriptvm (USA), Troum (D), Cut Hands (UK), IRM (SWE), BJ Nilsen (N), Anenzephalia (D), Ke/Hil (D), Wraiths (UK), Svartsinn (N), Sudden Infant (CH), The (Law-Rah) Collective (NL), Hybrids (B), Shift (UK), Schloss Tegal (USA), Human Larvae (D), AX (UK), Inade (D), Trepaneringsritualen (SWE), Of The Wand And The Moon (DK), etc.

DEAD NORMAL UK/CAT -Berlin debut-

Somewhere in between early industrial, raw punk and murky techno, Dead Normal is a three-headed unit from Barcelona playing, in their own words, “noisy electronics and rants”. Even though it’s not easy to label Dead Normal, some influences can be traced behind their abrasive sound: the pulsating rythm of Sucide, the crude lyricism of Sleaford Mods, the challenging attitude of The Fall…

Dead Normal have won a reputation for their intense live performances. Since their foundation in 2016, they have been gigging relentlessly, sharing the bill with hardcore punk bands, synthpop combos and powerelectronics acts, including artists such as The KVB and Sutcliffe Jügend.

“There Is Nothing Left But The Enjoyment Of Senseless Destruction” is Dead Normal’s first album, soon to be released on Harbinger Sound.
