The Berlin and the Swedish Soundpainting Orchestra devote themselves to the musical and literary œuvre of Erik Satie. By means of Soundpainting language they explore the radical and humorous aesthetics and deliver a complex conception of this eccentric composer. Inspired by the absurd theater, the production design is made up of a mixture of the fashion and art of the fin de siècle as well as contemporary influences.

LETTERS

Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents « LETTERS », an international group show featuring 10 artists engaged in the practice of urban calligraphy. 

The Exhibition will take place starting on Friday, April 23rd, 2021 at Urban Spree Galerie and online

 

 

LETTERS focuses on European and Mediterranean artists whose practice is strongly influenced by their graffiti years, past or current, their passion for painting, lettering, abstraction, and the use of brushes.

This first chapter covers artists nourished  by the classical European calligraphy tradition (roman, runic or cyrilic scripts) as well as arabic calligraphy, but first and foremost by their contemporary practice of muralism and abstraction: muralism or « street art » is an integral part of the practice of « calligraffiti » – the holy alliance of calligraphy and the urban landscape, shaped by graffiti, whereby speed, precision and abstraction converge to give birth to this particular urban flow.

Whereas letters and alphabets are consubstantial to graffiti, urban calligraphy diverges with the use of a particular reference to traditional calligraphy and use of specific contact tools like brushes instead of aerosols.

Artists are using calligraphy as a materia prima. However, the final result is a substantial evolution from the traditional corpus of calligraphy with serious inroads into abstraction, where letters are turned into abstracted shapes and signs, dissolved, essentialized, obfuscated and cyphered.

LETTERS is a show about post-calligraphy and post-graffiti. About signs, mutations, strokes and freedom.

 

To visit the Letters Show: 
Appointments are no longer necessary but a negative test of the day of the visit is mandatory.

 

LETTERS feature new works by:
