Upcoming Show: "Étalage" by Palefroi
- Aug 02, 2018
“Étalage: stand, stall, barrow, display, window display, showcase, showing off, spreading out, falling flat on one’s face / on the floor” Urban Spree Galerie invites the Berlin-based French artistic duo Palefroi for a month-long residency in our Berlin studio during the month of July, which culminates in a month-long solo show opening on Friday, August 3rd. Damien Tran and Marion Jdanoff are two French artists currently based in Berlin. Their visual work as a duo is a constant negociation between their respective approaches.. One is formal and abstract, the other narrative and figurative. They are attached to a form of harshness in the lines, to generous proliferation, to spontaneity and wonkiness. Palefroi is a framework embracing all of their practices: printmaking, self publishing, painting and animated drawings. It is a space of experimentation and collaboration but also a structure supporting both their work as a duo and as individuals. Following Palefroi’s residency at Urban Spree in July 2018, their solo exhibition Étalage should consist of: wolves, people playing trumpets, a fake tiger, dancing dots, drums solo and wallpapers.
Urban Spree Prints and Palefroi will also be releasing 2 special edition 6-colour screen prints on the occasion of the exhibition. Both prints have been hand printed by the duo on the Urban Spree premises during their residency in July 2018. They will be available in our Berlin shop on the opening night and online thereafter.Palefroi: “Etalage” Art Residency + Solo Show Urban Spree Galerie Vernissage: Friday 03.08.2018 at 19:00 Exhibition: 04.08.2018 – 02.09.2018 Tu-Su / 12:00-19:00 Info: firstname.lastname@example.org http://palefroi.net https://www.instagram.com/
