NEW LAND by klone – Exhibition Coverage

Until Sept.22nd, klone has a major solo show running at the Urban Spree Gallery in Berlin. Titled NEW LAND (we need new land), the exhibition is built around a 50-meter long paper installation and a selection of watercolors, ink drawings and collages, made in Tel Aviv and Berlin in the course of spring and summer 2012.

klone is well known for his graffiti and spray-painted murals that adorn the derelict parts of Tel Aviv and other European metropolises, a body of works that represent the outside part of his artistic expression.

Over the years, in parallel to his outside work, klone has developed a more intimate practice with watercolors, drawings and collages, which form the inside part of his artist’s personal and complex universe.

Rooted with distorted, lost memories from his childhood in the USSR, shaped by his street work and acute perception of the environment, his artwork reflects his obsession with duality, multiplication and transmutation, adorned with eerie mythological bestiary and ubiquitous spirits.

The exhibition plays on three levels:

1. A large outside mural on our main wall (7 m x 12 m). Facing Warschauer Str., klone’s mural depicts a mythological transmutation process, involving foxes, wolves and humans, of which a detail can be seen below.

2. A 50-m long paper installation that unfolds on two sides, NEW LAND represents klone’s largest paper installation to date.

The installation depicts a vision of our contemporary world and gives its title to the exhibition.

NEW LAND (we need new land) is a contemporary frescoe in the manner of the ancient Egyptians. Telling the urge for creation and a need for mankind to reinvent itself in a world that looks no longer infinite, klone’s vision intertwines human bodies with his famous Predator characters, in a biblical interpretation of confrontation, transmutation, and renaissance.

Mother, Father and Sons.

Sons born out of chaos.

Waves of memories glide along the installation in the background, while paper cut-out leaves peel off on the ground.

3. Watercolors, ink drawings and collages

klone’s inner side. Collages, watercolors and drawings are part of the artist’s most intimate expression. Unlike the installation, they are fragile bits of memories, remnants of childhood collected through old photography books, distorted portraits of woman and eerie animal characters. The central character of the moth (queen, mother) is represented twice in watercolor format.

Some of the artworks were prepared in his Tel Aviv studio when he was creating material for the exhibition. Some of the works were created in klone’s atelier at Urban Spree during his residence in Berlin before the show. The watercolors and drawings realized in Berlin are more about movement and reflect the strong energy carried by the German capital city which klone wonderfully captures.

 

 

klone’s works are available for sale at the Urban Spree Gallery in Berlin or online. Price list on request at contact@urbanspree.com

 



NEW LAND. A solo exhibition by klone

 Urban Spree Gallery is proud to announce the first solo exhibition in Berlin by Israeli contemporary artist klone.

Having started graffiti in Tel Aviv in 1999, klone is considered as the pioneer of the local graffiti scene and today’s most prominent street artist in Tel Aviv, where his stunning murals adorn the derelict and ghost areas of the city. Over the years, in parallel to his outside work, klone has developed a more intimate practice with watercolors, drawings and collages, which form the inside part of his artist’s personal and complex universe.

Rooted with distorted, lost memories from his childhood in the USSR, shaped by his street work and acute perception of the environment, his artwork reflects his obsession with duplicity, multiplication and transmutation, adorned with eerie mythological bestiary and ubiquitous spirits.

His artwork is an endless questioning about the surface and deepness of living creatures, a sense of loss and the urge for creation.

Titled “NEW LAND. we need new land“, klone’s all new body of works for his solo show consists of watercolors on paper, collage works and ink drawings. The exhibition will also host what is klone’s largest and most ambitious paper installation to date.

In connexion with the exhibition, klone will be releasing a limited edition screen print on paper in collaboration with Mother Drucker’s print studio, hand-pulled at the Urban Spree Ateliers. Also exclusive for the Berlin show, klone will introduce and sign his new artist’s book, self- and hand-published.

“Berlin-Praha Barter” Group Show opens on 16.05.2019 in Prague

After the first exhibition, titled “Praha Berlin Barter” (March/April 2019) which was hosted by Urban Spree in Berlin, the gallery is this time being hosted by Trafo Gallery in Prague in a new group exhibition called “Berlin Praha Barter“.

BERLIN PRAHA BARTER

Preview: 16.05.2019
Exhibition: 17.05. – 23.06.2019

Curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree)

In this second round, we have invited 11 visual artists of the Urban Spree family to exhibit artworks at Trafo Gallery:

 The artists are representative of the new Berlin scene that emerged since the Fall of the Wall, starting with the precursor – Jim Avignon – quite known for his painted decors of many of the Berlin squatted clubs of the early 90’s and large historic murals (East Side Gallery) and whose remixed cubist/pop art/Neue Sachlichkeit aesthetics are iconic of the Berlin art scene.
Going along the figurative trail, Marion Jdanoff (half of the duo Palefroi) develops a highly poetic and fairytale-like universe, fueled with middle age tales, strange characters, fabled animals in a rich palette of colors. Fabian Warnsing paints large-sized canvases in a faux-naïf style, creating still life paintings, urban landscapes and everyday scenes.
The graphite drawings of Lars Wunderlich are part of a series from 2017 titled “East German Realities”, whereby the artist applies his process of distortion and glitches to scenes witnessed in the Eastern parts of Germany where nationalism is still a vivid reality.

Sebas Velasco explores the remnants of the Eastern bloc in a series of oil paintings and drawings based on scenes from Yugoslavia and elsewhere, Plattenbau, old cars, graffiti, and neon hotel signs. An urban/architecture thematic which has been magnified over 20 years by EVOL with his stencils on outdoor electric boxes and on cardboard.

Going further, Hendrik Czakainski creates 3D large-scale post-architectural panels which are radical anatomical explorations of the urban body. His works are impressive, immersive, chaotic urban scenes captured from above, on a bird’s eye view perspective.

Besides figurative and architecture-inspired works, a strong line at Urban Spree has always been “post-graffiti abstraction”, i.e. using the codes, techniques, roots, flow and philosophy of graffiti, where the letter becomes an abstraction, a substance.

While Stohead is closer in some instances to the true form of the letter (calligraphy, handstyle, overwriting), he has always experimented beyond it, trying to deconstruct and dissolve the Letter in a post-graffiti approach. Theresa Volpp‘s practice is more focused on the very subject of abstract art and bears only a faint distance to graffiti, although some form of automatic writing exists in her work, in a pre-graffiti way, as if abstract art is trying to reconnect with a certain flow but before the invention of graffiti..

Christian August creates multiple layers of grey colors by erasing, scratching, repainting, and finally achieving a wall texture (in the scratchy meaning of Dubuffet and Brassaï in the early 20th century), then completing his work by a stunning dash of ultramarine color, the artist’s persistent signature. Johannes Mundinger has also strong roots in wall painting and creates delicate abstract works in subdued tones, large shapes and blocs, stunning and contemplative abstract landscapes.

Oscillating between abstract and figurative art, Berlin Praha Barter shows a diversity of approaches and styles, seemingly loosely connected but united by an undercurrent practice of wall painting and shared values.

—————————————————————————————————-

Urban Spree Galerie was created in 2012 in Berlin-Friedrichshain in 2012 as a 400 sqm “artist-run” space with the objective of discovering and promoting the emerging international wave of post-graffiti painters and artists, with a strong focus on local talents.

The gallery is an essential part of Urban Spree, a 1.700 sqm independent multi-cultural complex comprising a Biergarten, a concert room, a bookshop, 5 artist studios, a screen printing studio, itself set in a 70.000 sqm postindustrial creative compound in the heart of Berlin (R.A.W.).

The gallery benefits from its large urban grassroots ecosystem and offers its invited artists an ideal space for experimentation through ambitious on-site residencies and monthly exhibitions that usually involve painting the outside walls of the compound.

It is armed with these values of generosity and openness, shared with Trafo Gallery, that we together decided to initiate a gallery exchange.
