    A film by Sowat & Lek Editing Kan With (by order of appearance) Philippe Baudelocque, Wxyz, Alëxone, Smo, L'Outsider, Sowat, Babs, Skki, Jay one, Tcheko, Apôtre, Kan, Seb174, Sambre, Nassyo, Popay, Spé, Fléo, Lek, Dem189, Swiz and Jacques Villeglé Music: The Chicago Bucket Boys, Live at Summerfest 2011, Milwaukee, USA Lek and Sowat have secretly invited graffiti writers to work with chalk and water on a blackboard at the Palais de Tokyo. The film – with its choppy editing and monochrome aesthetic – documents this experience while exploring the questions of relocating from the street to the institution, violence and destruction, and the fragility of a trace. Lek et Sowat ont invité clandestinement des artistes issus du graffiti pour travailler avec de la craie et de l'eau sur un tableau noir du Palais de Tokyo. Le film présentant cette expérience, œuvre saccadée et monochrome, interroge le passage de la rue à l'institution, la violence de la destruction, la fragilité de la trace.

          • BC Gallery presents The Wall by Da Mental Vaporz (Teaser)

            BC Gallery presents The Wall by Da Mental Vaporz From April 26th to May 31st the well known French street-art collective “Da Mental Vaporz” will hold an exhibition in Berlin under the title “The Wall” which is to be seen at the two gallery spaces of BC Gallery. Matching the title of the show the crew will also design a large scale mural painting next to the S-Bahn station Warschauerstraße, which is going to complete the show by overlooking the whole area. Through this mural design the spectator will have to opportunity to discover the core of the matter of what distinguishes the individual members of the crew as an organic unity. As all of them have already created their very own sophisticated styles which work perfectly well independently, what connects the artists does not lie directly in the content or style they create but more in the fact that they find ways to bring all those diverse parts together, in a balanced tension and create something completely new. Their preferred medium for that fusion is mural painting which makes clear that the title of their upcoming exhibition“The Wall” is not just a hint at the vast mural design which will be part of the show, but also displays the deeper meaning of what really holds the artists together. **Opening Reception:** Saturday, 26th April, 6pm Registration: rsvp@bcgallery.de Attending Artists:Blo, Bom.k, Brusk, Gris1, Kan, Lek and Sowat Duration of the exhibition: April 26th to May 31st Opening Hours: Wednesday to Saturday 1 pm – 6 pm About the Collective The France based artist collective, DMV “Da Mental Vaporz” consists of ten members: Bom.k, Blo, Brusk, Iso, Dran, Kan, Lek, Gris1, Jaw and Sowat. The works of these artists can speak for themselves independently, differentiating from each other mostly in medium as in style and technique that which as soon as they are shown in a common context, creates an extraordinarily interesting and thrilling relationship. As can be deduced from the name “Da Mental Vaporz”, which, translated, means “The Vapors of the Psyche” it is for the artists a matter of concern to make the observer aware of the abyss of the personal psyche. This is translated by each individual member of the collective in their own way and leads to a multifaceted wealth of style, which, collectively, puts its mark on the important tides of the art of the 20th century. During a visit to a DMV show or by observing the walls created by them in an urban setting, everything is offered to the beholder, from old school Graffiti to Pop Art and all the way to Surrealism, abstract Expressionism, Cubism and pore Abstraction. As different as these styles seem, the artists are, nevertheless, able, in their commonly created works, to bring together a harmonious symbiosis, which, although marked by tension, remains balanced. Their preferred media are spray cans, acrylic, mixed media. The artists also attempt to bring to life installations that are created in the urban environment (where they create most of their art) into a gallery framework. About the show The title of the show “The Wall” explains in one word the most passionate part of most urban contemporary artist today. The public wall space has been a platform to all different kinds of art forms for decades now. From Harring and Basquiat to Banksy and Kaws, thanks to diversity and quality the “Graffiti” or “Mural” art form has well established itself in the contemporary art scene. For the DMV big murals are a way to express their collective creativity and have enough room for each artist to bring in his personal style without getting cramped or overloaded.

                  • Black Grouse Lek

                    This morning I took a trip up to the moorlands in Northumberland to photograph the black grouse lek. Unfortunately they have had a bad winter, and there were only 3 or 4 birds at the lek compared with around 10 to 15 last year. A lek is an area where the black grouse, or some other species, gather to display and fight to attract the attention of the females. It is a fantastic spectacle but you should make sure when you are watching the birds lekking that you do not disturb them at all. I didn't get much opportunity for footage, but this is what I got on the first day. For the protection of the birds I am unable to release the location of the lek.

                      In the early morning hours of Montana spring months, male sharptailed grouse congregate on lekking grounds to display, call, dance, and attract a mate. The dominant males occupy the center of the lek and defend territories from rival males, often engaging in intense battles. Females approach and carefully choose a suitable mate. Shot on a HVX200, Canon 7D, and Canon 5D Mark II. Music by zero-project, www.jamendo.com. See more at www.3bearsmedia.com
