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.

i812's insight:

The struggle for freedom continues.

Picture above: Street art sculpture by TEJN. Handcuffed character reaching for freedom symbolized in a bolt cutter, chained just/almost out of reach.

TEJN arbejder progressivt med det skulpturelle medie. Med sine figurative jernskulpturer har han med et nyskabende udtryk, slået sig fast i dansk samtidskunst, som en fokuseret og retningsbevidst kunstner.

Som skulptør formår TEJN at inkludere sit publikum i sine svejsede værker. Med et organisk formsprog fjerner han beskuerens fokus fra det hårde materialevalg, og ophæver på den måde metallets iboende tunge væsen.

TEJN´s jernskulpturer markerer sig med en umiddelbar udpræget råhed, men overrasker med en detaljerigdom, som gavmildt multipliceres ved mængden af opmærksomhed...

Raw iron works compellingly well for Danish artist TEJN. His sculptures are made from recycled iron, which he roughly welds together creating objects within a figurative sphere. The sculptures appear powerful and unpolished. To the trained eye TEJNs work may refer to the grand Danish sculptor Robert Jacobsen, who was celebrated for working with raw iron in the ‘50s and ‘60s. TEJN wants to bring the iron media to a new and contemporary stage of artwork.

TEJN finds metal scrap for his sculptures and uses some of it in its original form. The rest is created into figurative objects that express a narrative deadopen for interpretation.

 

“When making my sculptures I try to see people as they are, and not only the trained version of how they want to be,” says TEJN in connection to explaining his drive for the figurative.

 

The underlying honest self that comes forward when people lose their facades inspires the artist. He appreciates how the loss of self-control develops a new transparent world, which he builds into his works.

il Lock On style, ovvero il signor Tejn. Cosa vi racconto prima del Lock On style o di Tejn? Partiamo dal protagonista della puntata di oggi. Tejn è un artista di Copenhagen, classe 1976, il quale dal 2008, oltre a fare stencil e installazioni in giro per l’Europa, si diverte a creare delle sculture di varie dimensioni che lui stesso realizza fondendo vari scarti di ferro. Dopo aver creato le sue sculture se ne va a zonzo a depositarle dove meglio crede bloccandole con una catena ed un lucchetto a diversi supporti. Così, immaginate, passeggiando in città, ad un certo punto vicino ad un semaforo trovate un carro armato di ferro grande come una scarpa o magari una pistola vicino ad un albero di un parco. E perché, vogliamo parlare dell’omino incatenato al palo che cerca disperatamente di prendere la sega disegnata a terra per liberarsi dalle sue catene? Sembra un gioco anche questo ma credo che dietro le sue creaturine allergiche alla ruggine si nasconda qualcosa di più profondo. Guardando le immagini che ci sono in giro su internet si direbbe che l’artista voglia lanciare dei messa politici o forse semplicemente risvegliare le coscienza di noi cittadini, lanciando la sua fantasia oltre la superficie ruvida dei muri e dei cavalcavia che da anni ormai fanno da sfondo ai graffiti e alla cosiddetta street art che a noi piace tanto. Buona domenica!
