Orsten Groom: Chrome Dinette

Du 23 Octobre au 23 Janvier 2021, la galerie berlinoise Urban Spree est heureuse d’offrir au peintre Orsten Groom sa première exposition personnelle en Allemagne, « CHROME DINETTE ».

Artiste radicalement indépendant et autogéré, Orsten Groom s’est imposé en quelques années comme un acteur incontournable de la jeune scène picturale française, entre milieux alternatifs et institutions muséales.

Sa première rétrospective a été présentée cette année au centre d’art contemporain ACMCM de Perpignan (France) – à seulement 37 ans.

L’exposition berlinoise réunit près d’une quarantaine d’oeuvres, présentées en deux sections :

– le grand ensemble rupestre de 17 toiles « CHROME DINETTE » (accompagné de son proverbial Divan), ronde démente sur les liens unissant Sigmund Freud et Moïse par Égypte antique et caniches malades interposés – sous l’égide de Frank Zappa;

– Une vaste sélection récapitulative de grands formats emblématiques de l’artiste, véritable parcours «subconscient» aux allures de sarcophage pariétal.

 

ORSTEN GROOM (CHROME DINETTE): « YAHVOLCANISMUS » – (Esquisse)

La peinture d’Orsten Groom se présente comme « Art pariétal post-historique ».

Le fameux artiste allemand Jonathan Meese a dit de lui : « Orsten Groom vient des grottes et du Moyen-Âge et garde l’histoire vivace dans l’art actuel. Il vient du futur ».

Fresques au fatras apocalyptique saturées de créatures tirées du Styx de l’oubli par enquêtes talmudiques délirantes, récapitulation carnavalesque de l’histoire depuis le flot des origines et l’histoire de l’art, sa peinture rugit sur de grandes toiles peuplées de figures enchevêtrées par mythologies et archétypes grotesques, Danses macabres glanées par un détective archéologue de la langue.Sa matière est dense, volcanique, habitée comme les foies antiques d’un rituel divinatoire.

« Ce trouble est semblable à celui que j’éprouve dans les grottes de Lascaux ou Chauvet, devant les tableaux du Greco ou de Picasso ou encore au XXe siècle devant l’oeuvre essentielle de Gérard Gasiorowski », comme l’écrit Olivier Kaeppelin, commissaire de sa récente exposition parisienne POMPEII MASTURBATOR – Pour laquelle le Parc archéologique de Pompeii en personne s’est fendu d’une plainte.

Orsten Groom a subi en 2002 un anévrisme qui l’a laissé amnésique et épileptique. Il est diplômé de l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris en 2009 et du Fresnoy en 2011. Il est lauréat de plusieurs prix : Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) et Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). Le célèbre fabricant de peinture Marin fabrique une couleur à son nom, le Rose Groom.

Il est également musicien, auteur de recueils de poèmes cubistes anglais, cinéaste (Prix du jury pour son film BOBOK au festival Côté-Court 2011) et depuis 2012 auteur du cycle vidéo Les Ballets Russes.

Il a collaboré avec les commissaires et auteurs Olivier Kaeppelin et Paul Ardenne, le cinéaste Guy Maddin, le traducteur et poète André Markowicz, ainsi que l’écrivain Boris Wolowiec.

 

ORSTEN GROOM: « MÂÂT » – 210 x 140 cm – Huile et Glycero sur toile

Implantée en plein coeur de Berlin, La galerie Urban Spree est depuis plus de 8 ans une référence incontournable des arts urbains, entendus comme manifestation d’un art post-pariétal, qui inscrit le graffiti au coeur de sa pratique, sur grande échelle.

.Le vernissage sera accompagné d’un concert du POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formé pour l’occasion par Orsten Groom, le Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa

CHROME DINETTE est Divan ardent, Sphinx psychanalytique et Langue malade du Dieu Imprononçable.

WALLS

For their first show of 2020, Urban Spree Galerie presents « WALLS », a collective exhibition featuring 30 international artists and dedicated to the notion of the « wall ». 

Curated by Fabrice Douar and Cyrille Gouyette (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) and co-curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin), « WALLS » invites prominent artists from both the comics scene and the street art scene to create graphic works of fiction related to walls, interpreted either as simple architectural elements, ominous symbols of segregation, canvases and vessels to convey meaning, textures, or imaginary playgrounds and labyrinths.

While some antique artefacts appear in the show to testify of their immortal, silent presence, in the 21st Century, the Minotaur doesn’t wait at the center of his realm but has clearly moved outside, demultiplied its presence, and is building more walls.

The exhibition’s direction is therefore resolutely multifaceted, contemporary and graphic-oriented, spanning several topographies (Europe, South Korea, Middle East, Hong Kong, Cuba…), and art forms (painting, photography, installations, videos). 

Levalet: « Voie de contournement », China ink on paper, 70x100cm, 2019

30 Artists: Alias, Andreas, Jim Avignon, Bault, Enki Bilal, Broken Fingaz Crew, Isaac Cordal (installation), Hendrik Czakainski, Christian Durieux, Philippe Écharoux (mapping installation), EVOL, Jean Faucheur, Flix, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, Miles Hyman, Kim Jung Gi, Levalet, Stéphane Levallois, Loustal, Marc-Antoine Mathieu, Mode2, Alexandra Novosseloff, Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Michal Škapa, Pen So, Thom Thom, Sam Tse, Santiago Valenzuela, Lars Wunderlich, Zevs.

MOLCHAT DOMA
thursday 24th october

MOLCHAT DOMA
Detriti Records
Minsk, Belarus

Molchat Doma (translated as “Silent Houses”), founded in 2017 in Minsk, Belarus, stands at the intersection of post-punk, new-wave and synth-pop. Dark yet danceable, and with a heavy dose of goth ethos, their music is reminiscent of the masters that predate them, but make no mistake: Molchat Doma creates a sound and meaning that is immediately recognizable as all their own.

The band is comprised of Egor Shkutko, who sings the Russian lyrics in his deep monotone, Roman Komogortsev on guitar, synths, and drum machine, and Pavel Kozlov on bass and synths.

Their second LP, Этажи (pronounced Etazhi, meaning “Floors”) was released in 2018 on Berlin-based Detriti Records. It has sold out four times and is currently on its fifth repressing due to outstanding demand. Этажи has garnered over one million views on Youtube.
