Evolving in an era where technology and communication are meant to be at its finest but in which humans tend to feel more and more confused by it.

Punctuality is dead, fear of missing out seems to be a common worry while there’s still no app allowing us to be in two places simultaneously. On the other hand we have never been so united in recorded history and the entire world’s knowledge is now accessible in a few clicks.

This exhibition raises questions about the relationship between human and technologies without really aiming to answering them.

– Other Inbox – is a reflection on our contemporary way of living.

Rylsee will also release his first monograph – « How to Play with Letters » – published by Moleskine Publishing on the Opening Night and will sign and doodle copies for you.

Pablo Tomek: Solo Show « Thank You Boss »

As part of its Art Residency Program, Urban Spree Galerie has invited the Paris-based artist Pablo Tomek in February 2017 to invest its Berlin space for 2 weeks to create large-format artworks in situ.

A couple of months after his participation to the Palais de Tokyo’s Lasco Project, Tomek is invited by Urban Spree in Berlin to propose « Thank You Boss », a solo show around 5 large-format artworks and installations.

PABLO TOMEK SHOW OPENING "THANK YOU BOSS" OPENS ON 18.02

For Tomek, the construction and building sites scattering the city are endless sources of materials and plastic inspiration, whereby the relationship between building and demolition seems like a paradigm of the modern world, an aesthetics prone to détournements and dérives.

The materials flow in, the materials come into confrontation, the colours are damaged, the accidents shape, and things are born.
The exhibition « Thank You Boss » is a homage to the unknown and undetected aesthetics and « paintings » of construction workers, to the graffiti artists who ransack palisades, to the glass cleaners, to the roadside accidents that reshape the space, to the posters paste-ups, and time, that pulls them away.
Tomek’s first published monograph, « Teren Alchemia« , published by Classic Paris in January 2017, will be on display in the Urban Spree shop.

 

About the artist:

The art of Pablo Tomek (b. 1988 in Paris) originates in graffiti for which he has developed a rough experimental approach, which is further refined in his studio practice. Tomek studies the relationships between graffiti and abstract expressionist painting, the techniques and aesthetics of manual street workers (whiting with sponges, use of construction materials, remix of the fluorescent marks made by architects, abandoned objects, high-pressure cleaning tools), in a way to transmute objects and mundane practices into a new purpose and meaning, against a backdrop of an ever growing gentrification process.

His art stems from the hectic repetition of the gesture that drive the mechanical, anonymous practices of tagging and cleaning, which are part of the daily life of cities. By confronting the body and painting with space, between constant energy and fatigue, Pablo Tomek creates a painting which toys with its own destruction, resulting in a dance of pictorial ghosts.

Pablo Tomek’s work has been presented at several solo and group shows: at the galerie du jour agnès b. in Paris (“Etat des lieux”, 2013), the Frac Nord – Pas de Calais (“Toy”, 2014), in an illegally occupied industrial wasteland (“Expressiv Tag Painting”, Pantin, 2015), at the HLM in Marseille (“Honte”, 2015), the Bateau Lavoir (“Après Coup”, 2015), the Mini Galerie in Amsterdam (“Worker Games”, 2016), the Lasco Project #7 (Paris, 2016) where he produced a 500 sqm outdoor mural at the Palais de Tokyo, and Urban Spree Galerie in February 2017, following a 2-week in situ residency.
