Orsten Groom’s « CHROME DINETTE » series to be exhibited at Urban Spree

For their last exhibition of the year, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French painter Orsten Groom to exhibit in Berlin his new incendiary series “CHROME DINETTE”. The solo show, his first exhibition in Germany, will open on Friday, October 23rd, 2020.

While being a radically independent artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, oscillating between alternative circles and museum 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 30 works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a danse macabre summoning Sigmund Freud, Moses and sick poodles – under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

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

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, Danses 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», writes Olivier Kaeppelin, former Director of the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence and curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR.

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 (2011 Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the festival Côté-Court) 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 of the exhibition 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.

postponed: CTM Festival presents Senyawa / Gabber Modus Operandi

Senyawa / Gabber Modus Operandi

28 April 2020
Doors: 20:00, Show: 21:00
Tickets: 16,00 € https://disk.stager.de/web/tickets/420575

Two groundbreaking groups from Indonesia appear together on a hefty double bill.

Senyawa, the duo of Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi, returns to Berlin for their first appearance since 2016.

Best known for embodying Javanese music traditions while vaulting through frameworks of experimental music practices, Senyawa strikes a challenging balance between avant-garde influences and cultural heritage. With output such as Acaraki and Menjadi, the pair shared a truly contemporary Indonesian music with the rest of the world, thus becoming pioneers of their local scene.

Comprised of Shabara’s deft extended vocal techniques and the frenetic neo-tribal output of instrument builder Suryadi, Senyawa’s sound sees traditional Indonesian instrumentation clash with garage guitar distortion, as strikingly exemplified on their most recent album, Sujud (Sublime Frequencies, 2018).

They are joined by the now-infamous duo of Kasimyn and Ican Harem, aka Gabber Modus Operandi. Straddling the line between the sacred and the banal, their collaboration was born out of a shared obsession for all things high-octane and fast-paced. Since their explosive performance at CTM 2019, Gabber Modus Operandi have also made a name for themselves as trailblazers for a new generation.

In addition to exuberant, raucous live shows, Kas and Ican are best known for exploding the challenging sounds of gabber, footwork, grindcore, and noise with a number of uniquely Indonesian sounds such as jathilan, dangdut koplo, and funkot—as heard on singular, acclaimed releases PUXXXIMAXXX and HOXXXYA.

Thumper – Berlin, Urban Spree

Support: Zörf

THUMPER come from Dublin and make fast-paced noise pop. The very young sextet started the year 2019 with a series of three singles « (You’re Bringing Me) Down », « In My Room » and « AFL », which were played up and down on British rock radio. This was followed in May by their first EP « Out of Body Auto-Message », a festival tour that culminated in an ecstatic performance at the Primavera in Barcelona, and an acclaimed UK tour with sold-out shows in London, Bristol and of course their hometown Dublin. Now the band are working very hard on their debut record, which they plan to present on their tour in spring 2020. read more >> fkpscorpio.com/en/bands-archive/thumper

AL.Berlin presents: WAEL ALKAK | New Album Release

AL.Berlin is glad and honoured to present:
WAEL ALKAK – NEW ALBUM RELEASE PARTY in BERLIN
Urban Spree 15.2.2019
Starts: 22:00

★★★

Wael Alkak is a Syrian musician, based in Paris. A composer and Electronic music producer who trained in classical knowledge at the Conservatory of Damascus.

He presents this year his new solo album « Alkak Live 2020 », a creation deeply rooted in the old Chaabi music of the Levant and at the same time at the forefront of a new multiform electronic culture. This third album is his most personal, the result of two years of concerts across Europe.

With this new album, Wael Alkak shares a kind of music that tells from his story, inspired by the rythms of traditional dances and Arabic folk songs. His live performances are the accomplishment of a hybrid and experimental musical creation, combining synthesizers and machines with Chaâbi rhythms, and inviting the audience to dance all the way to trance. For the first time, the show will begin with a performance by the artist on Bouzouk.

(Arabic bellow)

★★★

//Line Up//

22:00 (Opening Act) – ♫ Moji & Lu Mia (Live) [Rebellion der Träumer / Geholper & Gestolper]

00:00 ♫ Wael Alkak وائل القاق « Alkak Live 2020 »

★★★

وائل القاق موسيقي سوري مقيم في باريس، مؤلف ومنتج موسيقى الكترونية، حاصل على إجازة في الموسيقى الكلاسيكية من المعهد العالي للموسيقى في دمشق.

يصدر هذه السنة أسطوانته الثالثة تحت اسم: القاق لايڤ ٢٠٢٠، إنتاج موسيقي مستقل يبحث في جذور الموسيقى الشعبية في بلاد الشام وما حولها، في نفس الوقت ممزوج مع موسيقات الكترونية مختلفة، وهو نتيجة عمل ١٠ سنوات من التجريب في هذا الحقل عموماً، و نتاج عروضه الحية في أوروبا خلال السنتين الماضيتين خصوصاً.

في وصفه أسطوانته الجديدة، يتبّى القاق ويدافع عن ما يعرف بالالكتروشعبي، الأسلوب الذي أثار جدلاً في أوساط النخبة الثقافية العربية، لكنه – يقول المنتج المستقل – بكل الأحوال أسلوب فرض نفسه ضمن الأوساط الشبابية العربية والغربية، كما فرض نفسه في السوق، مستفيداً من الثورة التكنولوجية التي أتاحت لأي موسيقي أن ينتج ما يشاء ويعبر وينشر بحرية دون الحاجة للمرور بكبريات شركات الإنتاج.

للمرة الأولى، يفتتح القاق الحفل بتقاسيم تقليدية والكترونية على البزق، من روح الموال والأغنية في الأسطوانة.

« A Danger Can Of Thounderous Sludgy Headbangs »

High-octane riffage and groovin’ emissions host a vocal conquest that is potent and total, bringing hard rain to a cold dawn and warm song to all there beyond. »
