Palefroi: „Étalage“ Art Residency + Solo Show

 

„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 duo Palefroi for a month-long residency in our Berlin studio during the first three weeks of July, followed by a week-long residency directly in the gallery, and culminating in a month-long solo show.

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.

One Week with 1UP” is an exceptional exhibition of photographs and artworks by Martha Cooper, 1UP Crew, and Ninja K. to coincide with the publication of the book „One Week With 1UP“.

The show is only the second exhibition ever made by the legendary Berlin-based vandal graffiti crew 1UP after their first show at Urban Spree in 2014 – „I Am 1UP“.

PEOPLE.
THE ANSWER HAS BEEN HERE THE ENTIRE TIME. JUST MUSIC, ALWAYS.
THIS IS WHAT TREVER SAID, FINISHING THE STORY OF A LONG JOURNEY. THIS OCTOBER WE HAVE STARTED A NEW ONE. TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS. WORKING ON OURSELVES, WORKING ON MUSIC. TRYING TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER THAT EXPRESSES WHAT WE STAND AND CARE FOR. NOT BASED ON STRATEGIC ALLIANCES, BUT REAL RELATIONSHIPS.

MUSIC IS OUR LANGUAGE. THIS IS WHAT WE SPEAK. EVERYONE IS CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS MAKING THIS THE BEST WE CAN DO. WHAT CAN WE DO? WHAT IS IN OUR HANDS, WHAT FOR?

SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED WITH SIMPLE ACTIONS. THIS GET-TOGETHER IS OUR ACTION. THIS IS WHAT WE CAN DO NOW. DOING SOMETHING TOGETHER. FREE. VULNERABLE. EPHEMERAL. THAT OCTOBER WEEKEND WE OPENED OUR DOORS AND HEARTS SHOWING OURSELVES RAW, INSPIRED AND FULL OF SONGS. WE WERE THROWING IT ALL OUT THERE. BUILDING ON THINGS WE KNOW, ON TALENTS AND TOOLS WE HAVE. ADDING SOMETHING TO IT, THAT ADDS THE UNKNOWN.

IN THIS, YOU SEE US. AS HUMAN AS THIS IS. YOU HEARD MUSIC THAT YOU KNOW. MUSIC THAT YOU LOVE. SOUNDS THAT CHALLENGED YOU AND POSSIBLY ALSO MUSIC THAT HURT. WE TAKE THIS RESPONSIBILITY. THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. AND IN FACT, IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN. BUILDING ALTERNATIVES AND BUILDING SOMETHING BASED ON WHAT COMES OUT OF ALL OF US. THINGS WE AGREE ON: EQUALITY, TOGETHERNESS, INDEPENDENCE, ABUNDANCE AND CARE, AS WELL AS TAKING CHANCES. SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR OURSELVES.

CREATING A SPACE WHERE WE ALL CAN SPEND TIME TOGETHER. THAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING. THE ABILITY TO COCREATE SOMETHING THAT IS COMING OUT OF ALL OF US. THE LOVE FOR EACH OTHER, THE LOVE FOR MUSIC, AND THE LOVE FOR THIS EXPERIENCE. BEING ABLE TO RIDE THROUGH THIS LIFE, MAKING DECISIONS AND CHANGES. IT’S IN OUR HANDS.

AND IT’S JUST MUSIC. BUT THIS IS OUR ANSWER, FOR TODAY, FOR RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GRATEFUL, THAT YOU ARE WITH US.
