Jonni Cheatwood: Tyger Tyger

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Tyger Tyger“, the first solo show in Germany of the Los Angeles based visual artist Jonni Cheatwood and only his second in Europe.


URBAN SPREE STUDIO, JUNE 2019

The American artist (b. 1986 in Thousand Oaks, California), spent a month at Urban Spree in Berlin as an Artist-in-Residence to create 11 large format artworks that are exhibited in the galerie from July 5th, 2019 to August 4th, 2019.

Jonni Cheatwood incorporates found fabrics into his canvases, which he himself cuts and saws, in order to create variations, a sense of appropriation and move away from the uniform surface of the canvas. Acting as time and identity markers, some fabrics have geometric patterns whereas some others are figurative or overly pop. The Residency enabled Jonni to source local fabrics, found in the Turkish market or in the street. Once the patchwork is assembled, Cheatwood paints blocks and shapes of colors on it, adding multiple layers of paint and agglomerating texture, freely outlining shapes to convey dynamism, movement and balance.

Jonni Cheatwood is an abstract painter whose work is about balance, shape and color and who can be related to the “Figuration narrative” movement. Here, Roy Lichtenstein makes an appearance in most canvases of the series as a reference and a cultural bridge as some fabrics sourced in Berlin include some embroidered stories derived from the American painter.

Jonni’s work is also close to the post-graffiti movement as we can also view his color shapes and black outlines as deconstructed graffiti.

Overall, his work is very dynamic, balanced and superbly colorful, while creating multiple layered & complex identities.

“Tyger Tyger burning bright, 
In the forests of the night: 
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?”

Qual is finally back with his much-anticipated second full-length album : The Ultimate Climax

https://qual.bandcamp.com/album/the-ultimate-climax

Septic discharges of cybernetic disease seeps from every orifice. Welcoming a post apocalyptic nuclear winter. With terror and restless chaos cometh the digital age condemned to be digitally transformed. Cometh hybrids, mutated humans a depletion of organics.

Dry woods and fire temples.

Modular and mayhem a chant for death and all her joy. Rituals for renewal the infinity of pain and chaos to come. Mechanized doused into illusion the earth has long ended and humans are actually finished. Balance your pagan spirit from years past realize it’s not too late for civilization to rejuvenate.

Unhuman: Release Party

INSTRUMENTS OF DISCIPLINE PRESENTS:

Live Acts:

#UNHUMAN (GR/DE)
Unhuman will perform his first live set in 5 years, presenting his uncut vision of dystopic noise.

Human Larvae (DE)
“Human Larvae’s ability to incorporate and balance more aggressive passages of junk metal clangor, swarming distortion, and ferocious vocals with hopelessly bleak and gloomy atmospheres immediately sets them apart from anything else in the scene today, though reference points can be made to Gnawed, IRM, Grunt, and Theologian. On a whole, Behind Blinding Light stands on its own as a recording of great depth and compositional expertise, and can be regarded as a benchmark recording of pure and true industrial music.” – Malignant Records

AMANDA KNOX (Debut show///IT)
Berlin based produceer Ayarcana plays his first show as Amanda Knox, expect live, electronic sludge.

ERSTWHILE (Berlin Debut///NLD)
Erstwhile is one of the monikers under which Kevin Jansen (Svartvit, Clamor, Qualm, Ratteknaeghen) presents his auditory output. This time around the sounds are rooted in tradition, paying hommage to the greats of the eighties through minimal power electronics dirges. Thematically the project deals with the fragility embedded in our everyday lives.

Live Aktion/Installation/Performance:

Nullam Rem Natam (GR/DE)
Originating from the Latin phrase “nullam rem natam”- means no thing born, an emphatic idiom for nothing.Nullam Rem Natam create and destroy. Their actions are reactions.Their reason is absurd and absurdity is chaos. Unfolding secrets, revealing fears, abusing the psyche. Hunters of intensity and seekers of purgation. An eternal circle, the serpent devouring its tail. Nullam Rem Natam are a group of actionists, composed in Berlin in 2016.
As resident artists of Liber Null Berlin, they commit visual sins and provoke the subconscious. Ignoring the limits and obeying to instincts, they practice and perform their experiments
using sacramental and ceremonial methods.

DJS:

Espectra Negra
Espectra Negra is a very consequent project from Berlin which focuses on Industrial & Ritualistic Noise. She keeps the old industrial sound mixed with shamanic elements and sound art. After her first self-release album “Savage Justice” which included two collaborative tracks with Annie Stubbs (UK/Suddent Infant/Devotion) -vocals- and John Murphy (R.I.P) (AU/SPK/LastDominionLost) -drums- she reached serious local and international resonance for her underground power and strong political content.

AGENCY
One half of OPERANT/IOD, Agency will close the night, mopping up the sludge on the dance floor.

ENTRY: 10EUR
21H @ URBAN SPREE, REVALER STR.99

Ruby My Dear, aka Julien Chastagnol, is a producer, songwriter and live performer who fuses melodic
electronica, IDM and jungle to create a highly inventive and musical brand of breakcore. His tracks mix
dream­like atmospheres and haunting melodies with sharp, complex rhythms, to take the listener on a
constantly evolving journey through his unique sonic universe.
Julien started his Ruby My Dear project back in 2010 with the release of his DJ Shadow’s “Building Steam
with a Grain of Salt” remix, out on his own label, Reconstruction Productions. Now, four years later, he has
produced 8 EPs on both Peace Off and Acroplane and 2 full length albums on Ad Noiseam.
Performing live is also a large part of Juliens arsenal. He brings his intricate production to the stage to
rework his studio pieces so naturally that it seems effortless. He is captivating and engaging to watch on
stage as he blends sonic beauty with live energy.
Notable appearances have been at the Berghain, Glastonbury, Bang Face, Maschinenfest, Fusion Festival
and club events in every major city throughout Europe.
In 2014 Julien joined forces with a Toulouse artist, Lisa Chabbert, to shoot a movie “Jitter Room” and has
completed a new collaborative EP with Igorrr.
In December 2015 comes a new Ep, Balloon, on Kaometry records.

There are few artists that live up to their name. Julien Caraz aka Monster X is one of those special few. For when he takes to the stage, a monster is truly unleashed, leaving a trail of destruction as witnessed at various raves and festivals all over Europe. The French born sonic hooligan moved to London 10 years ago, after a performance in France caused a small riot among old punks fighting in a record shop, resulting in smashed windows and other damage.

Since then he’s evolved his production and performance abilities, head-banging his way through a myriad of midi controllers, hardware boxes and self-built Reaktor modules that have won him listeners and fans of extreme and abrasive music from Europe to US and Japan. Although a professional radio/TV sound designer by day, it’s his night time persona as Monster X that has gained him notoriety worldwide, both as a live performer and recorded artist.

One of the few whose work manages to balance great precision with great fury, his tracks have seen support from discerning labels such as Ad Noiseam, Peace Off, Tigerbeat6, Combat Recordings, Murder Channel, Fyerhammer, Bedroom Research and Mutant Sniper, to name but a few. This latest work on Abstrakt Reflections shows a deeper, colder ferocity and more mature side to his production. As ever the music remains dystopian and futuristic, yet the not-too-subtle track titles suggest inspiration and anger drawn from current world events.
