“As part of its Art Residency Program, Urban Spree Galerie has invited the Paris-based artist Pablo Tomek in February 2017 to invest its Berlin space for 2 weeks to create large-format artworks in situ. A couple of months after his participation to the Palais de Tokyo’s Lasco Project, Tomek is invited by Urban Spree in Berlin to propose “Thank You Boss”, a solo show around 5 large-format artworks and installations.
For Tomek, the construction and building sites scattering the city are endless sources of materials and plastic inspiration, whereby the relationship between building and demolition seems like a paradigm of the modern world, an aesthetics prone to détournements and dérives. The materials flow in, the materials come into confrontation, the colours are damaged, the accidents shape, and things are born. The exhibition “Thank You Boss” is a homage to the unknown and undetected aesthetics and “paintings” of construction workers, to the graffiti artists who ransack palisades, to the glass cleaners, to the roadside accidents that reshape the space, to the posters paste-ups, and time, that pulls them away.” (Text by courtesy of URBAN SPREE Galerie)
