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.

Out of the darkness emerged ReveRso. The creation myth of a megalomaniac marred on its own venom: a fetishistic cannibal-of-self bound in love, loss, seduction, salvation, madness, prophecy and pain. Currently based in Berlin, ReveRso has massacred crowds on stages (and in alleyways) from Europe to America. A junky, he must devour the public to feel the light, his rite of purification through the shadows. To Repent to the name of no other but He ☦ ReveRso.

“Expensive Ass Pastrami” by Jonni Cheatwood

Urban Spree Prints releases Jonni Cheatwood’s exceptional screen print “Expensive Ass Pastrami” on Tuesday, October 22nd at 09:00 PDT (LA) / 06:00 pm CET (Berlin) on the Urban Spree website and in our Berlin shop.

The print is a 30-color+ hand-pulled silk screen print produced in Berlin by master printer Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker / Urban Spree Studios).

This print was built closely with the artist and in total trust, based on a canvas of the same name painted in Berlin and exhibited during Jonni Cheatwood’s solo show “Tyger Tyger” at Urban Spree Galerie in July 2019.

 

We were certainly heading for an ambitious print, working on all the matters, vibrant colors and fabric-like textures that Jonni incorporates into his canvases; however, during the whole screen printing process. it was clear that something more was happening: a dialogue was silently building up between the painting and the screen printer.

Dolly started an immersive relationship and at some point, lost count of all layers and colors after 30, trying to reach perfection, not as in a perfect “reproduction”, but as in a perfect symbiosis between the art of the painter and the art of the screen printer (or, in that perfect example, the art of the “screen painter”.)

Having built a relationship in Berlin during the artist’s summer residency at Urban Spree for a month helped a lot to understand how the painter works and intuitively translates this into a screen printing vocabulary, replacing some of the techniques used by Jonni by innovative ones such as layers of puff ink, a special ink that “puffs” when heated and adds real texture to the print.

“I enjoyed working on this print so much because I paint myself. I like to work on pieces by painters because I can understand, I can almost see how they build it up. I’m improvising on an intuitive feeling of what’s need to be done, what’s need to be brighter, what needs to be stronger, softer, push parts backwards, pull parts forward. You can’t pre-plan it from the beginning.”  // Dolly Demoratti

Lars Wunderlich: “What Are We Looking For?” Solo Show Opening

Urban Spree Galerie presents “What Are We Looking For?”, a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich a.k.a. “Look the Weird”.

The exhibition will kick off during Gallery Weekend Berlin with an Opening on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 18:30 in presence of the artist.

The exhibition is the outcome of a 3-month Art Residency at Urban Spree.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

————————————————————-

Lars Wunderlich (b. 1981 in Neubrandenburg, GDR) is a German post-graffiti artist, member of the 9-member street art crew “The Weird” (Nychos, Low Bros, DXTR, Vidam…) under the moniker “Look the Weird”.

Besides spraypainting/wallpainting and graphic design, Lars is an accomplished painter. “What are we looking for?” is his first solo exhibition with Urban Spree Galerie.
