In der Fremde / Pictures from Home — Photobook Launch Event

Urban Spree and Hatje Cantz invite you to the indoor/outdoor photobook launch of Romeo Alaeff’s, “In der Fremde: Pictures from Home,” published by the esteemed German arthouse publisher, Hatje Cantz.

Romeo Alaeff is a Berlin-based artist from Brooklyn, NY. After moving to Berlin eight years ago, he began a long-term photographic series about migration, belonging, and the universal search for home. Through haunting, cinematic images of Berlin, he charts a new city topography in the context of a complex family history spanning from Yemen to USSR, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Israel/Palestine, and the United States.

The photobook « In der Fremde: Pictures from Home » is composed of eerie nightscapes and Kiezszene in familiar Berlin neighborhoods, but, as the oxymoronic title suggests, strangeness and unfamiliarity lurk in the shadows.

The nocturnal photographs are framed by inspiring essays from Romeo Alaeff, Yuval Noah Harari, Eva Hoffman, Joseph Kertes, Rory MacLean, Christian Rattemeyer, and Charles Simic.

The artist will present his new photobook at Urban Spree, which will unveil an outdoor exhibition consisting of three mural-size photographs (300 x 200 cm) and a series of medium format photos disseminated throughout the garden. The photographer will sign his book and engage with the audience in partnership with the publisher.

The exhibition will be on display in the garden until January 23, 2021.

Orsten Groom: Chrome Dinette

From October 23rd to January 23rd 2021, Urban Spree Galerie is pleased to offer the painter Orsten Groom his first solo exhibition in Germany, « CHROME DINETTE« .

 

ORSTEN GROOM: « EINSOF – A » from the CHROME DINETTE Series –  160 x 215 cm – Mixed Media and Oil on Canvas

 

As a radically independent artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, between alternative circles and institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over thirty works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 18 paintings « CHROME DINETTE » (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a crazed round about the links binding Sigmund Freud and Moses through Ancient Egypt & Sick Poodles – all under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A vast Recapitulative Selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

 

ORSTEN GROOM: « FORT – DA » from the CHROME DINETTE Series –  160 x 215 cm – Mixed Media and Oil on Canvas

 

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as « Post-Historical Cave Art ».

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: « Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future« .

Apocalyptic Frescoes, saturated with Creatures drawn from the Memory Styx by Demented Talmudic Investigations, Carnivalesque Recapitulation of History from the Flow of Origins and Art History – His Painting roars on Large Canvases populated with Figures entangled by Mythological and Grotesque Archetypes, Dances Macabres gleaned by a Language Detective, an Amnesiac Epileptic Archaeologist. Its Material is Dense, Volcanic, inhabited like the ancient Livers of a Divinatory Ritual.

«This turmoil is similar to the one I feel in the Grottos of Lascaux or Chauvet, in front of El Greco or Picasso paintings, or, in the 20th century, facing the essential work of Gérard Gasiorowski», wrote Olivier Kaeppelin, Curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR – For which the Archaeological Park of Pompeii itself has send a complaint.

Orsten Groom experienced in 2002 an aneurysm that left him amnesic and epileptic. He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and Le Fresnoy in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards: Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) and Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). The reputed paint manufacturer Marin manufactures a colour to his name, the Pink Groom.

He is also a musician, author of collections of English cubist poems, filmmaker (Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the 2011 Côté-Court festival) and since 2012 author of the video cycle Les Ballets Russes.

He has collaborated with curators and authors Olivier Kaeppelin and Paul Ardenne, the filmmaker Guy Maddin, the translator and poet André Markowicz, as well as the writer Boris Wolowiec.

The opening will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the 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 is Burning Divan, Hypnotic Sphinx and Sick Tongue of the Unpronounceable God.

Arbeitstitel completes the 4th and final wall of the StillStand Project

The Berlin artist duo Arbeitstitel (Robert Westphal | Laurent Wians) has completed their mural at Urban Spree, the 4th of the StillStand series and the final wall of the project.

The duo painted an abstract composition, made essentially from fragmented elements and visually impressive with a bright palette, enhanced by sparks of fluorescent yellow.

The AT20 mural at Urban Spree, facing Warschauer Str., will be visible until around the end of July 2020. Photos by Lukas K. Stiller.
