The Composing Rooms is super happy to announce its second solo project with Michael Pybus. Harking back to our first collaboration in 2012, a web presentation of his amazing ‘Pika Pots’ - deformed ceramic Pikachu planter pots, Dreamy includes recent paintings and drawings alongside some ceramic works never before exhibited.

Made in 2013 during a period when Pybus would pay weekly visits to Hackney City Farm in London to make use of their ceramics studio amongst the barnyard animals and his favourite three legged grumpy farm cat, E.coli.

Over the past five years Pybus has made a name for himself as a painter of pop motifs and brand iconography - specifically an obsession with the global powerhouses of Pokemon and IKEA. Ubiquitous imagery is co-opted by Pybus, making the the brands work for him. This renegade attitude towards the ‘throwaway’ is often interpreted as subordinate, however Pybus’ work argues for a demolishing of value systems mirroring the flattened cultural landscape we now inhabit. Amped up on technological advances and addicted to speed creating an environment where time, context and hierarchy have collapsed onto an infinite digital plane to be sampled, remixed, consumed and edited by us all at will. The Warholian Dream or The Warholian Nightmare, Pybus refuses to pick a side, seamlessly warping between both worlds celebrating the extreme abundance our technologically advanced society offers whilst dissecting the darker scaffolding that holds up such a system of excess.

Every time I see Pikachu or an IKEA logo I think of Michael Pybus. Would you like fries with that?

Michael Pybus, British, b. 1982 lives in London. He studied Sculpture for an MA Royal College of Art, London UK, graduating 2008 and Fine Art BA (Hons) Goldsmiths College, London, graduating 2004. Pybus has had 17 solo exhibitions since 2011 including in: London, UK; Sydney, Australia; Singapore; New York, USA; Frankfurt, Germany; Stockholm, Sweden; Ghent, Belgium; LA and Mexico. He has an upcoming solo show for the inauguration of The Composing Rooms new project ‘Jelato Love’ in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. His work is in major public and private collections including those in: USA, UK, Brazil, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Russia. Details upon request.

Deinstalling these great works by berlin based Iranian artist and architect Tanaz Modabber 'baubotanik:unit' - botanical building:unit - such fragile works meditating on the complexity of nature intervening a geometric structure.

Thirsty Garten is a special exhibition as it takes influence from the beloved Thirsty Moon – a tea shop specialising in Chinese whole leaf teas – and Teri Garten – a gallery initiated by Paul Sochacki within the shop in Berlin Mitte, 2014-2016. Together they created a space for friendship, exchange and community.

In serendipity, The Composing Rooms opened in Berlin in April 2014 with Japanese tea ceremonies hosted by Mai Ueda. Being a space of, in Mai’s words, “Internet Reflection” her Tea Ceremony focused on “the real spirit of tea by bringing together worldly life”.

Through the artists and their works, the exhibition reflects on the early dreams for the space, an influence of East on the West and a concept of a sustainable, or highly constructed utopia. A huge garden installation by Michael Pybus from 2014, titled ‘In 3D the basil never wilts’ – a reference to IKEA’s increasing use of CGI to save money – serves as an environment for hosting tea and other events within the exhibition. The Composing Rooms invites proposals for other events such as readings, gatherings and talks.

Additional information on each artist/work available upon request.

Ry David Bradley – DADABASE
10 September – 29 October 2016

Celebrating five years of discussion The Composing Rooms is honoured to present Ry David Bradley’s first solo exhibition in Germany.

DADABASE is the first presentation of a new body of work on a silent stage. The exhibition extends upon the artists history of pressing digital paintings to unusually tactile and robust soft surfaces, a contrast with popular notions of what it is to be digital or screen based. In this new body of work a metallic thread allows the work to shift as the viewer alters position, with brush strokes that appear and disappear from view.

When we see faces or figures in the clouds, it is Pareidolia - a psychological phenomenon wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists. DADABASE makes a humorous case for the space between representation and abstraction at a time when the art market has forced a new trend, having foolishly exhausted a previous one. A seasonal pendulum between figurative and non-figurative painting is now conflicted. If the cloud now stands to represent data visualization, file storage and access, then perhaps digital culture shifts in similar ways with no precise edge. One thing is certain, the cloud has been commercially repurposed from an actual element of weather cycles, toward a symbolic representation of the network and digital masses.

Throughout the entire history of Western landscape painting we are presented with a ground zero perspective from below the clouds looking upward, often with reverence. Perhaps in the 21st century we are equally as familiar with the view from the flight window, looking down on the clouds from above. The sky is no longer sacred, the tourist in the climate, computer-guided by a new trust, a newer risk - all rendered bright under the brilliant glow of the sun. You have landed safely on an island, some passengers immediately applaud while others boot their phones for a local data signal, eager to navigate or to see what they have missed.

Ry David Bradley (1979 Melbourne, Australia) studied at the Victorian College of Arts (MFA). In 2009 he founded Painted, Etc., a global research blog with an audience of 150,000 followers for painting and digital culture. Recent institutional shows include; Painting, More Painting, The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, 2016; Face to Face, Palazzo Fruscione, 2016; Art of the Matter, Contemporary Art Musuem St Louis, 2016; and Artspace, Sydney (forthcoming). He has presented solo and group exhibitions in; New York, London, Milan, Kansas City, Basel, Cologne, Sydney, Los Angeles and Melbourne. His work is held in the National Gallery of Victoria and significant private international collections including the Aldala Collection.

Thanks Spike Art Quarterly for publishing this interview with the lovely Rachel Lord prior the closing of her exhibition this Saturday at The Composing Rooms (。◕‿◕。) ↗

Tarot and freemasonry are turned into cartoonish black-and-white paintings in R. Lord's current exhibition at the Composing Rooms in Berlin. Here, she explains some of the thinking behind her work.

R.Lord – Safeworld
28 May – 16 July 2016

The Composing Rooms is honoured to present the first solo exhibition of R.Lord outside of L.A. Safeworld, comprising several paintings from a new series of work of charcoal and gesso directly onto unprimed canvas.

The large greyscale works, with titles such as: Quarantine: Earth and The Politician have been constructed from R.Lord’s own sketches, without photo reference. This series, devoid of traditional painting methods; of perspective, vanishing point, colour and texture, are to the artist, just as much drawings as they are paintings.

Bearing minor resemblance to left-field cartoon panels, the paintings in Safeworld draw on conspiracy theories and symbolism of the occult, capturing an air of humour and relevance. The sketch-like quality, render as basic explorations of belief and systems of belief, hypothesises for complex relationships between, for example, elements of our solar system and human ideologies.

“I am attempting to paint the innumerable shades of grey between the poles of spiritual and scientific discourse, a grey area oft labeled “conspiracy”.” – R.Lord

R. Lord (1986 Washington D.C, USA) lives in Los Angeles. R.Lord identifies as an american painter, though is also recognised as performer; notably as a main character in many videos by Lizzie Fitch/Ryan Trecartin, for whom she has also made paintings as props; in programs curated by curated by Hans Ulrich Obirst; at Zabludowicz Collection, London and the performative painting series ‘Angry Bird Paintings’, 2012, combining the hobby paintings of Bob Ross with the then-trending Angry Birds game characters. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions in LA, New York, Berlin and Sydney, Australia, and was included in the New Museum Triennial, ‘Surround Audience’ at the New Museum, NYC in 2015. This is her first solo exhibition outside of the USA, following her first solo exhibition ‘Documental’ at Dem Passwords, Los Angeles in 2014.
