Scultura in strada: TEJN

Scultura in strada: TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

Non ci sono solo le sculture ufficiali in giro per Berlino. Ad arricchire il panorama c’è anche uno dei migliori esponenti della street art “scultorea”: Tejn, pseudonimo di un artista danese che ha dedicato parecchi piccoli capolavori a Berlino.

Si tratta di piccole sculture di metallo, incatenate per le strade.

Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art

Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art | TEJN | Scoop.it

...Tejn just released a fresh batch of lock on sculptures. Made from salvaged iron found in the streets, welded into sculptures, and returned as art chained to public railings. The three pieces I have spotted so far, all speak of peace, and they seem almost tailored for the locations. Like the gun in the meat grinder, attached to a pole by the troubled People’s Park.”“The attention to detail is extraordinary. Look at the tiny hands on the man carefully winding up the peace sign! I find it impossible to pass a Tejn, and not feel instantly better.

Tejn | Gyldendals encyklopædi

Tejn | Gyldendals encyklopædi | TEJN | Scoop.it

Tejn, f. 1976, dansk billedkunstner, der begyndte sit kunstneriske virke som gadekunstner og er siden, uden at have forladt sit oprindelige element, også rykket ind på gallerierne.

Tejns street art har, med hovedsæde i København, sat sit præg på de fleste europæiske storbyer. Gadekunsten har ofte form af politiske eller filosoferende unikaprodukter malet på papir og sat op med tapetklister et sted hvor de kommunikerer i samspil med lokalområdet.

Mest kendt er Tejn for sit varemærke "Lock On", som er skulpturer, typisk svejset i jern, låst fast i gadebilledet med en gammel cykellås, hvor de står udstillet, til en kommunal oprydder eller en kunstsamler kommer forbi med en boltsaks.

Lock On, Daily Omnivore

Lock On, Daily Omnivore | TEJN | Scoop.it

Lock On is a style of street art, where artists create installations by attaching sculptures to public furniture using lengths of chain and old bike locks. The Lock On style is a ‘non destructive’ form of underground art. Artist Tejn is considered the ‘founder’ of the style. Taking scrap metal from urban areas, he welds the material to create sculptures which he ‘returns to the street’ as art. The genre was introduced when he started placing his welded iron sculptures, chained and locked, throughout Copenhagen and...

Tejn – dansk gadekunster med “Lock On’s”

..Tejn er et dansk bud på netop den udvikling. Han begyndte sin kunst i 2008 i København, men har siden indtaget Europa. Fra gaden til udstillinger i ind- og udland.

Tejn er også kendt for sit trademark “Lock On’s”, hvor han låser figurer i genbrugsjern fast med en cykellås til en lygtepæl, bænk eller hvad der ellers findes til fri benytttelse i gadebilledet...

Street art - Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi

Gadekunst eller street art kan afgrænses på flere måder . Nærværende diskussion og definition kan derfor ikke betragtes som udtømmende eller præcis, som det tilsvarende er tilfældet for definitionen af kunst generelt. Nærværende definition tager fortrinsvis udgangspunkt i en post-graffiti definition, dvs. en række stilarter, som er blevet markant mere synlige i gadebilledet siden 1990'erne.

Galore kæmper for kunsten - Booomerang

Galore kæmper for kunsten - Booomerang | TEJN | Scoop.it

”Galore er for mig det ultimative, kunstneriske forsøgscenter, hvor de eksperimentelle dimensioner virkelig kan ranke ryggen. Hér kan den fri tanke blive skærpet, og et nytænkt og dogmefrit, kunstnerisk udtryk kan derved lette anker.

De krøllede arbejdstegninger fra papirkurven som ikke kunne lade sig gøre, kan pludselig på magisk vis komme til live. Her kan man også vride armen om på den etablerede kulturmaskine, give fuck i prestige og populære tendenser – og lave virkelig meningsfuld kunst.

 

Alt dette skal absolut ikke tolkes som frit lejde til at komme med hvad som helst. Det kræver efter min mening stor forfængelighed og selvjustits at udstille på Galore, “ansvar for egen deltagelse” om man vil.

 

Jeg ser Galore som en højeksplosiv forbrændingsmotor, hvor jeg denne éne gang om året har mulighed for at trække på alle 16 cylindere – for derved at udvide min kunstneriske horisont.

 

Harder Better Faster Stronger!”

 

- TEJN (deltagende kunstner ved Galore 2012 & 2013)

Not only the position, but also the scale and the color of these impelling acting presences escalate the dramaturgical effect, revealing and combating the contradictions that characterize contemporary lifestyles and our cankerous system of values. What is considered ‘waste’, both in terms of material as well as practice, and why?...

Berlin Street Art - TEJN

Berlin Street Art - TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

A selection of some of the best Street Art Berlin has to offer.

Danish Street Artist TEJN creates sculptures from salvaged Iron found on the streets.  A number of pieces from his ‘Locked On’ project have popped up around Berlin including this huge character, which seems to me like it may be a Norse god, a larger version of a previous sculpture on Kastanianallee.

Den sjuttonde december 2010 blev sista gången den tunisiska regeringsmakten konfiskerade gatuförsäljaren Muhammed Bouazizis grönsaksvagn. Klockan halv tolv på förmiddagen tog tjugosexåringen en tändare och satte eld på sin bensinindränkta kropp i protest mot en odemokratisk statsapparats övergrepp.

 

Muhammed Bouazizis aktion satte igång ett folkligt uppror och arabvärldens autokratiska regeringar sattes i gungning. Idag är det tre år sedan den arabiska våren startade och upproret pågår fortfarande...

Banksy vs. Tejn vs. Richard Hambleton vs. A1one

Banksy vs. Tejn vs. Richard Hambleton vs. A1one | TEJN | Scoop.it

...While I love Banksy and think his work is awesome (I got to see his New York accent piece before it was defaced), there are lots of street artists who deserve more notoriety… and I will do that here.

 

Tejn: Tejn’s work has actually been in a few noteworthy settings, however I still feel like he deserves some more respect. I think it’s really cool that he is a street artist who doesn’t work solely in graffiti. It’s so popular to do stencil work, that doing large scale metal pieces is both interesting and unique. His “Lock On” collection is really awesome.

 

Richard Hambleton: This dude is like Banksy’s grandfather… or godfather… or whatever. He is basically know as one of the innovators of the street art movement...

Lock On - Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi

"lock on" er en nyere gren indenfor street art / gadekunst, som går ud på, at kunstneren bevæbnet med kunst, kæde og lås, monterer objekter i gadebilledet, så de interagerer med omgivelserne [1].

Begrebet lock on stammer fra gadekunstkulturen. En lock on ("lås fast til") er kunst som typisk er sat fast til en lygtepæl eller lignende, med en form for lås. Heraf navnet [2].

Lock On genren er en "ikke destruktiv" gren af den hastigt udviklende street art kultur [3].
