Etienne Pottier: They Live

Until May 25th, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the first german solo show of French artist Etienne Pottier. Entitled ‘They Live’, the exhibition displays Etienne Pottier’s most recent body of works, specially crafted for his Berlin solo exhibition.

Using the artistic medium of gravure on metal, Etienne Pottier delves into his underground memories to impress usually morbid images on used fabrics.

Based on his personal experience of tekno free parties & underground sound systems, anti-fascist punk and black metal culture, Etienne Pottier translates and carves the energy and vitality captured on the different scenes as well as its strong death appeal, mainly using skulls as his artistic trademark.

This ‘materia prima’ is then transformed, alchemized into a universal form of art.

Life and death. Time-resistant metal plates and fragile fabrics. Noble technics, vernacular experience.

Etienne Pottier captures random and personal energies and transmits the fragile echo of life pulsing through the dense morbidity.

Exhibition: Tuesday – Saturday : 12:00 – 18:00. Until May 25th, 2013

'To The Past' at Urban Spree Berlin

We are very happy to become a stockist for Little Big Man Books in Berlin. Little Big Man is a US-based publishing house founded by Nick Haymes and focused on strictly controlled editions of photobooks and artists’ books in limited runs. Having previously released remarkable and highly rated books such as ‘Surf Riot’, ‘Lovesody’ and ‘Eden Is A Magic World’, Little Big Man is now releasing ‘To the Past‘, a limited edition of black and white photographs by Japanese master Nobuyoshi Araki.

The book is printed chronologically as a photo diary, spanning more than 30 years of Araki’s life and work, from his photos of bondage to tender images of everyday life, to vivid still lifes, to the documentation of his wife’s death from cancer, and ending in photographs of the Japanese earthquake in March, 2011. The special edition of the book (limited to 10 copies) with a photogravure print were sold out before publication. The limited edition we are proud to carry has a run of 350 copies only and is almost already sold out. Click here to purchase the book online or visit us on Warschauer Str.
