“Berlin-Praha Barter” Group Show opens on 16.05.2019 in Prague

After the first exhibition, titled “Praha Berlin Barter” (March/April 2019) which was hosted by Urban Spree in Berlin, the gallery is this time being hosted by Trafo Gallery in Prague in a new group exhibition called “Berlin Praha Barter“.

BERLIN PRAHA BARTER

Preview: 16.05.2019
Exhibition: 17.05. – 23.06.2019

Curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree)

In this second round, we have invited 11 visual artists of the Urban Spree family to exhibit artworks at Trafo Gallery:

 The artists are representative of the new Berlin scene that emerged since the Fall of the Wall, starting with the precursor – Jim Avignon – quite known for his painted decors of many of the Berlin squatted clubs of the early 90’s and large historic murals (East Side Gallery) and whose remixed cubist/pop art/Neue Sachlichkeit aesthetics are iconic of the Berlin art scene.
Going along the figurative trail, Marion Jdanoff (half of the duo Palefroi) develops a highly poetic and fairytale-like universe, fueled with middle age tales, strange characters, fabled animals in a rich palette of colors. Fabian Warnsing paints large-sized canvases in a faux-naïf style, creating still life paintings, urban landscapes and everyday scenes.
The graphite drawings of Lars Wunderlich are part of a series from 2017 titled “East German Realities”, whereby the artist applies his process of distortion and glitches to scenes witnessed in the Eastern parts of Germany where nationalism is still a vivid reality.

Sebas Velasco explores the remnants of the Eastern bloc in a series of oil paintings and drawings based on scenes from Yugoslavia and elsewhere, Plattenbau, old cars, graffiti, and neon hotel signs. An urban/architecture thematic which has been magnified over 20 years by EVOL with his stencils on outdoor electric boxes and on cardboard.

Going further, Hendrik Czakainski creates 3D large-scale post-architectural panels which are radical anatomical explorations of the urban body. His works are impressive, immersive, chaotic urban scenes captured from above, on a bird’s eye view perspective.

Besides figurative and architecture-inspired works, a strong line at Urban Spree has always been “post-graffiti abstraction”, i.e. using the codes, techniques, roots, flow and philosophy of graffiti, where the letter becomes an abstraction, a substance.

While Stohead is closer in some instances to the true form of the letter (calligraphy, handstyle, overwriting), he has always experimented beyond it, trying to deconstruct and dissolve the Letter in a post-graffiti approach. Theresa Volpp‘s practice is more focused on the very subject of abstract art and bears only a faint distance to graffiti, although some form of automatic writing exists in her work, in a pre-graffiti way, as if abstract art is trying to reconnect with a certain flow but before the invention of graffiti..

Christian August creates multiple layers of grey colors by erasing, scratching, repainting, and finally achieving a wall texture (in the scratchy meaning of Dubuffet and Brassaï in the early 20th century), then completing his work by a stunning dash of ultramarine color, the artist’s persistent signature. Johannes Mundinger has also strong roots in wall painting and creates delicate abstract works in subdued tones, large shapes and blocs, stunning and contemplative abstract landscapes.

Oscillating between abstract and figurative art, Berlin Praha Barter shows a diversity of approaches and styles, seemingly loosely connected but united by an undercurrent practice of wall painting and shared values.

—————————————————————————————————-

Urban Spree Galerie was created in 2012 in Berlin-Friedrichshain in 2012 as a 400 sqm “artist-run” space with the objective of discovering and promoting the emerging international wave of post-graffiti painters and artists, with a strong focus on local talents.

The gallery is an essential part of Urban Spree, a 1.700 sqm independent multi-cultural complex comprising a Biergarten, a concert room, a bookshop, 5 artist studios, a screen printing studio, itself set in a 70.000 sqm postindustrial creative compound in the heart of Berlin (R.A.W.).

The gallery benefits from its large urban grassroots ecosystem and offers its invited artists an ideal space for experimentation through ambitious on-site residencies and monthly exhibitions that usually involve painting the outside walls of the compound.

It is armed with these values of generosity and openness, shared with Trafo Gallery, that we together decided to initiate a gallery exchange.

With great passion for their craft, these three young men combine the electrifying drive of rock’n’roll music with booty-shaking funkiness and the healing quality of soul and blues. Their roots go deep into America’s sonic treasure box, sprouting a shoot on today’s branches, swaying in the breeze alongside bands such as Rival Sons or Royal Blood. The heartbeat of the group is a companionship going back more than a decade. Formed in 2019, Circus Electric consists of Oskar, Leo and Adrian – a trio pursuing the joy of speaking a language through their instruments. Their unique sound comes as a result of an intriguing recording process, which takes place in the drummer’s studio, deep in the countryside. After a number of “interesting“ experiences in the music industry, they’ve concluded that the future lies firmly in their own hands. Together with their low-end friend Oskar, the stars finally seemed to align – allowing them to push each other to their best. There’s a distinct energy and sense of adventure in every note shot out of the sonic raygun known as Circus Electric.

Wolf City presents: Grave Miasma / Spectral Voice

Smell that? It’s the stench of this show reaching your nostrils.

Proudly putting together two of today’s best death metal bands in existence, UK’s Grave Miasma (back in Berlin after a very long break) and USA’s Spectral Voice (who played to a sold out crowd in this very venue last year) – this will be the last highlight of the year for Wolf City, to send 2019 properly spinning into its crypt.

As opener we welcome the Abrisskommando Mouth Of Madness, who will export their personal brand of pestilence from Görlitz.

ROTTING DEATH METAL FROM THE GRAVE!
