Marina Zumi: Techno Poetry

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to invite the Argentinian street, light and visual artist Marina Zumi for her first solo show with Urban Spree Galerie. The exhibition’s Opening on September 12th coincides with the closing ceremony of the Berlin UrbanArtWeek.

On this occasion, the Berlin-based artist will create an ambitious presentation of new works on canvas in the gallery space as well as a special immersive light installation in our newly created dark room. Last but not the least, Marina will paint the Urban Spree Artist Wall.

 

There´s no light without shadows – always in pairs, always in conflict and often deceptive.
In her work Zumi lives the apparent polarity of the two worlds. The refraction of her crystals, the world of the Shadowen just before the sunrise and her technocratic light installations, address the duel between progress and poetry.

„Techno Poetry“ is a snapshot of this artistic balancing act. Marina Zumi can not be an artist without becoming a mathematician. In her creation, technology is much more of a continuation than an exclusion of the poetic.
Thus works have been created that are hermaphrodites between the two poles, seemingly from another lifetime.
Denis Leo Hegic

“Was passieren kann, wenn die Herangehensweise des Freejazz auf die Zugänglichkeit von Pop und eine an der bildenden Kunst geschulte Praxis treffen, dafür ist „Minus“ ein Fanal, eine regelrechte Markierung des Jahres 2018.“ – Spex

Jim Avignon: Here Comes the Bad News

Jim Avignon returns to Urban Spree Galerie for his second solo show „Here Comes the Bad News“, 2 years after « Permanent Jetlag ».

In his only exhibition in Berlin for the year 2019, Jim Avignon describes the mood in the world and in Berlin in particular with his usual wit.

Gentrification, Global Warming, Surveillance Capitalism, Alt Right… here comes indeed the bad news. His paintings are a mash-up of cartoony figuration, expressionistic composition, – a maximum of expression with a minimum of lines.

 

Jim Avignon is a painter, illustrator and conceptual artist. Always ready to confront the establishment he is torn between pop art, street art, Picasso on acid or simply being the fastest painter in the world. His signature style consists of vivid colours, a biting humor, unpretentious materials and a mind numbing output. His art works like pop music in DIY mode.

According to the legend, the artist became stranded in the Provence city of Avignon at some point in the ’80s when his car unexpectedly broke down. He resorted to painting Dali images onto pavements, gradually raising money to repair his car. The name stayed.

In the early 90s, he became an ubiquitous painter of the techno movement, designing makeshift clubs and Love Parade trucks.

By creating a colorful flood of affordable, rapidly-produced works, Jim disrupts the well-oiled art market and pervades it with black humor and self-irony. Avignon’s images caricature the modus operandi of the art market and are also aimed at people who are bored or deterred by the gold-framed aura of so-called high art. „Good Artists Go To The Museum, Bad Artists Go Everywhere“.
