Opening of SP38 Art Residency Exhibition “Post Vandal 2”

Berlin-based street artist SP38 was invited by Urban Spree Galerie and Boddinale for a special gallery residency alongside the film festival (15-25.02.2018).

After 2 weeks of daily indoor work and street interventions in Friedrichshain, we invite the public to discover the outcome of the art residency over the upcoming weekend together with the artist. 

The exhibition opens on Saturday, February 24th from 14:00 to 23:00 and will continue on Sunday February 25th from 12:00 to 23:00. Visitors will be able to acquire the original works on canvas and paper produced during the residency in addition to a selection of screen prints and stickers.

SP38 will also screen print “Post Vandal” tote bags live on Saturday!

Post Vandal 2“, explores the notion of vandalism at the age of post-graffiti.

A relentless urban wanderer and street typographer, SP38 (b.1960) uses different lo-fi techniques (collages, paste-ups, stickers, screenprints, paintings) to imprint his vision of the city and his letters to the walls. Involved at an early stage with the “Figuration Libre” movement in Paris and participant to the first graffiti and street art meeting in 1985 with Vive la Peinture, Speedy Graphito, Futura, Miss Tic, and Blek Le Rat, SP38 has navigated in different squat scenes (including the infamous Berlin’s Tacheles) before moving to Berlin in 1995.

A prime witness of the fast-paced gentrification of the metropolis, his art subtly reveals the fractures of the city through successive campaigns and catchy slogans (“Who kills Berlin?”, “Erased”, “Escape”, “Occupy”, “Vive la Bourgeoisie”, Vive la Crise”…), where the intimate, personal level often collides with the bigger scale.

SP38 invades Urban Spree

The French & Berlin-based street artist SP38 is invited by Urban Spree Galerie and Boddinale for a special gallery residency of 2 weeks alongside the film festival.

A Berlin sequel to his 2-month long residency held in Seoul, South Korea, at the end of 2017, “Post Vandal 2“, explores the notion of vandalism at the age of post-graffiti.

“ERASED”
 
When street art pays homage to toying.
 
“Erased” – “Effacé” – “Ausradiert”
 
Erased: the walls, the city, the memories, 1UP, childhood, history, words, life, empty monuments, hope, innocence, dreams, signs, green trees.
 
Erase oblivion, rub out memory.
 
Erase the work before it’s finished, self-efface one’s own work by covering it with its duplicate.
 
Erase history, both recent and distant. Erase the cruel crystalline nights with repetitive blood red slogans like so many mute, slowly illegible words. Turn a piece of wall lost in a rigid historical street into an evolving and unfinished artwork that derides content by erasing-replacing the same signs, the same forms, the same useless repetitions.
 
ERASED was written on a large roll of paper found in the trashcan at a kindergarten. The series ran until
the paper ran out. The first one hit the street the day Fidel Castro died …
 
Pasted up mainly in Berlin, Paris, Seoul, Wilhelmshaven …

The residency will follow its own strenuous path and will increment itself everyday from 12:00 onwards. The public is invited to witness the progression of the residency. A vernissage is scheduled at the end of the residency, on Saturday and Sunday, 24 & 25th of February from 12:00.

Vacant #7

URBAN SPREE & CORPO 6 Present:

VACANT #7
LIVE SETS / SOUND VIDEO PERFORMANCES:
SLOW SLOW LORIS – somatic visual vocal noise music _ berlin
LA MUERTE ROJA – drone concrete noise improv ensemble _ berlin
JERK IN THE CAN – experimental industrial noise pop duo _ vancouver

URBAN SPREE | Revaler Straße 99 _ 10245 Berlin


Vacant is an open platform that investigates since 2012 the communal resonance of different languages.

Performance, experimental live set, video installations will create a different equilibrium, designing a synergy of references.

A public exorcism. An exposure of vital forces. Focusing on inner strength of each media, Vacant proposes an analysis of the art practices as a dense injection of reality into the unreality of daily life. Art as a practice and source of directions versus a daily existence cracked with countless crisis of perspectives.
*

VACANT #7 ARTISTS:

SLOW SLOW LORIS
somatic visual vocal noise music _ berlin

http://www.slowslowloris.com/
https://soundcloud.com/slow-slow-loris

“An epic, sweeping live performance using vocal melodies, samples, various instruments, live
looping and multiple pedal chains to coax the music out of the noise. They enter raw emotional imagination to give the nuances of one`s subconscious permission to come forth…a sensitive blend of music meeting noise, reaching a wide range of audiences and venues from clubs and festival stages to concert halls and art galleries.”

Slow Slow Loris use voice and electronics to search for the intersections where melody meets noise, emotional meets avant- garde, feminine meets industrial, non-rhythm meets accuracy, and raw meets craft. Following up their debut album, From Monster till Mourning on Staaltape, they look forward to releasing their next album, Of Heroes in Helium soon.

ANY (angela nina yeowell) transmits data through voice and noise music. Along with processed samples,
she plays broken melodies on misshapen instruments, and sings to the resulting waves of intensity and
silence, boredom and splendor. Her espionage of the sub-conscious can sometimes result in visuals, such as
the creation of, and performance with non-musical instruments and sonic costumes.

G6PD (Robert Heim) shapes sculptures of sound with unpredictable outcomes, like subconsciously painting
emotions. With a non-conceptual, experimental approach, he uses and abuses audio, destroys song
structures and music styles, and collages unexpected tunes that often lead into a sonic weird deep electro-
acoustic mess.

LA MUERTE ROJA
drone concrete noise improv ensemble _ berlin

https://soundcloud.com/corpo-6-recordings/syria-la-muerte-roja
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggz6hOj6KDMhttps://www.facebook.com/lamuerterojacorpo6/

La Muerte Roja, adopting different approaches – tonal, atonal, improv, noise – defines, ritualistically, in a high saturated media context – performance, installation, video installation – , a sacred area of being.

La Muerte Roja is an oxymoron. Death in life. And vice versa. And it means rebirth. A Circularity of simplicity.

For VACANT # 7 and for the first time live, La Muerte Roja will perform SYRIA, their last work – published in cassette by CORPO 6 recordings -. SYRIA, recorded in 2016, between Foggia – Apulia, South Est of Italy -, Rome and Berlin evokes the sacrality of a border, where the mystifications of the global power are taking place. And together it tries to embodied the ecstatic cadence of the middle est Zoroastrian rhythms.

La Muerte Roja ensemble, performing SYRIA, will be: Diego Ferri – flute and cassette, Angel Cervera – lute and pedals, Adolfo Spezzaferro – drums, Bianca Ringwald – piano, Fabio Campagna – objects and feedback on electric guitar.
La Muerte Roja will perform live scoring the exp-movie
: -1+1=0.

-1+1=0, shot by Fabio Campagna between 2015-2016 (Video, 41’42’’) closes a trilogy about Berlin. A personal diary through
the eterotopic, free interstices of Berlin in the attempt to present the nude factual – the unpredictability of reality. A route
trough the city. Through its autonomous, dirty, peripheral zones. An ideal map of the liminal spaces of Berlin.

An archetype emerges in the simplest of things. A communal sphere. A sharing, an harmonic unity. A community of
imagination and desire. Resembling the idea of the Mediterranean – medio terrae, the sea, core of our civilization that unifies
the opposites, the North and the South, the Ovest and the East – .

A symbol of Berlin and ultimately of our contemporary
condition. The convergence of the antinomic edges of reality into one single, organic, shape. A sacred uterus that unifies,
combining opposites into the centrality of symmetry. The relation and the equation between opposites is finally exposed – as
the livid fundamental truth. The city reflects upon itself and creates a vacuum that defies contradictions and promote the
inclusion of the different.

JERK IN THE CAN
experimental industrial noise pop duo _ Vancouver

http://jerkinthecan.com/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR1TalUYMMo

“Jerk in the Can showcase a balance of eerie dream pop — reminiscent of Australia’s HTRK — that divulges into aggressive industrial noise, taking direct influence from Skinny Puppy or early Nine Inch Nails, sprinkled with an aesthetic suitable for an Insane Clown Posse worship band.

Jerk in the Can have several videos posted to their website, some are performance videos of the band, some are purely
performance art. Synthesizers, drum machine, samples, vocals from Marc and sometimes accompanied by saxophone.

However, the understated, minimalist synthesizer punk Jerk in the Can’s duo create on Big Crime Baby -their last album – goes over much more smoothly than you’d imagine. The eight songs on the album show diversity in sound, structure as well as varying sonic ideas.

Out of damp, reverb drenched, bit-crushed pools of darkness come bouncy analog arps, cheesily dreamy synth pads and big minimal drum machine grooves. These elements coat the clear vocals, which switch from ghostlty ballads and awkward raps to heavily modulated screams of agony.”

CORPO 6, after three years – 2012 / 2014 – in Herzbergstrasse 55, Lichtenberg – area objectified as an elementargedanken
(A. Bastian)- the zone of transmutations – , has been started a nomadic gnosis troughout Berlin.

CORPO 6 is an art project by Fabio Campagna which focuses through a series of crossing media and site specific projects, on
the examination of the concept of limen – border in Latin – within the articulation of the city.

Onio + Sosek: Rawcuts/Internal

Urban Spree Galerie presents a double solo show by São Paulo-based artists Onio and Sosek.

Born out of graffiti and pixação, Onio and Sosek are invited by Urban Spree to exhibit their latest series of drawings, paintings and collages and work on site-specific projects during their Berlin residency.

onio_sosek_2

Onio: “Rawcuts” 29.07 – 14.08 (Ecke)

Returning at Urban Spree, the Brazilian artist Adriano Cinelli aka Onio brings his newest series of works entitled Rawcuts.

Onio has always been recognized for his vibrant aesthetics that oscillate between comics, illustration and painting, using strong colours in graphic meshes that tend to abstraction.

For his Urban Spree residency and exhibition, Onio takes a more experimental aproach and presents a series of colorful collages, mixing materials and techniques to attain a new aesthetics.

P1000436

The direct influence of chaos, visual pollution, and the characteristic urban aspect of São Paulo are a natural resource and inspiration to his work.

In addition to the presentation of original collages on small and medium-sized formats, Onio is also releasing a black-and-white zine entitled “Rawcuts” in a limited edition.

Sosek: “Internal” 29.07 – 07.08

For Sosek, the life in the paulistana street is inseparable from his art, notably the forgotten people, the left overs from the brazilian society, the silent homeless cohort that populates the city.

Roaming at night, he walks through São Paulo with friends to paint and photograph scenes of life on the streets, photographing the crude reality, Sosek then transcends the images in portraits and scenes, using only black ink. Unlike Onio, the world of Sosek is a world in black-and-white, drifting and dripping, rooted in calligraphy, graffiti & drawing, making the invisible, visible.

P1000483 - copie

“Internal” reveals the acute tension in the artist’s mind, the conflict with his inner self as represented by the city’s chaos. Sosek will also release his new zine, based on photographs and drawings of homeless people and decayed streets.

“I bring a sense of unease about our society and the destitute side of our existence”
