Grätüitöüs Umläüt Pays Homage To Heavy Metal!

Most of the artists featured at this month’s Punch Gallery show, the hilariously-named Grätüitöüs Umläüt (curated by Jacob & Justin Gibbens), are multi-disciplined artists whose styles are anything but conventional. Nonetheless, they have all been brought together by the brotherly duo to pay homage to the art of heavy metal.

The image at right is from video artist Marcel Schobel‘s Samson, a half-hour video installation of head-banging goodness.

The show is on display now at the Punch Gallery in Pioneer Square until May 30th, 2009.

In 2017, Vee released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and co-organized The Seventh Art Stand, a national film and civil rights discussion series against Islamophobia. 2022 sees the release of their next short film, Reckless Spirits, which is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature film.

Vee is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures.
