'Warhead' by Ryan Dunn

A development from last January’s exhibition Con:FRONT. Journeys, achievements, inspirations from then to now, bite narrative flashes.

From the confrontation to the transcendence. Peaks of emotion, orgasmic limbo, trapped nerves, phobic crescendo, the excess of success, burst barriers held before you in glorious stopped motion. Celebrate the high, the adrenalin, the gut reaction, moments of triumph captured and distorted.

From birth, to bloom, to animal experience, to discovery, intellectual exploration and expansion, mental and physical exertion, euphoria.

Photographs by Marco Berardi.

Open 24th August – 2nd September

A new exhibition. In the trail blaze of the Olympics, TC presents an alternative exploration of the spectator and the spectated.

Metal bars, metal hearts. The stage, the cage. Icons and swooners. Looking in, looking out. Break free, break loose, break out. The explicit and the censored. Wild, fierce, primitive, waiting, watching. The performance, the captivity. The prisoner, the keeper. The hunter and the hunted. Persecution, rebellion. Yearning, dreaming, living. Uniform, frippery, trappings, regalia, warpaint. Hoops, stunts, showdowns. Beauty, mortality, broken mirrors. Traditional roleplay, modern life. The expectation, the anticlimax. Control, submission, freedom. The beast within, mass consumerism, mutation. Branding, subculture, the fall of man.

Interior Hysteria explores ripples of unmanageable emotional excesses. A sliding scale of loss of self-control behind closed doors. Overwhelming internal conflict through visual brain patterns. Dysmorphia. Hypochondria. Neurosis. Lightness and dryness of the body. Paralysis. Disassociation. Waves of panic.

Greek physicians of the fourth century B.C. thought hysteria was caused by migrations of a restless uterus, or ‘wandering womb’. This concept is attributed to Hippocrates, despite the fact that it never appears in any of the Hippocratic texts.

Hippocratic authors manifest a distinct break with magic and religion. They claim that hysteria may result from prolonged sexual continence, an opinion which was to influence medical history for over two thousand years.

Join our hysterical creatures for a month of Interior Hysteria. Secrets, recesses, hollows, obsessions, sanctuary, constructed decay, personal castles… Let there be light.

Friday 6th April – Sunday 6th May

Through her experiments in photography and light, Jessica Kilpatrick explores the human face to present the cool and heat of otherworldliness. Spectral, luminous and lonely creatures from a deep sea dream. Psychedelic intimacy, provoking feelings of the bizarre and the unknown. Glowing and distorted negatives, duplicating features, creating movement, swimming in rich dream-glo colours. A soaring sense of anxious energy flowing into the release from a trap of strange fantasies…

6pm Friday 23rd March – 10pm Tuesday 3rd April 2012

We’re talking about form, we’re talking about content, we’re talking about interrelationships…meanwhile the statues run amok. Horrifying shocker as a biological experiment goes haywire when mutations invade a peaceful sterile environment. Therapeutic nesting and group therapy. The new church. The new asylum. The new emotional warrior. The warm comfortable huddle. Secret societies. The sculptures communicate with each other, creating dialogue beyond the original intent.

‘The Nest’ takes sculpture out of context, exaggerating the personalties of the works shouting to be heard and nurtured. Their physicalities are thrown into a strange new comparative community, enhancing their ultimate separateness while meditating strength in numbers. The B-movie gets introspective.

Apple Tart as living sculpture

The sculptures start to creep at night. Don’t miss the madness.

From 6pm 17th – 21st March

Long walks by the shore of the Thames have brought Vinny Montag many amazing objects. They form a part of his sculpture and in doing so begin a new life cycle and fresh shape as something called art. Take a moment to allow yourself to engage and look carefully. Found objects have many stories to tell and meanings to discover.

Tobacco pipes, animal bones, bottlenecks, bone china fragments, rubber
shoe soles are all potential players in Vinny’s Thames sculptures. Using wooden boards and a paste made with sand and glue, he carefully selects and fixes these objects into their scene.

Most of the sculptures shown in this exhibition are imaginary portraits. Expressionist masks with a strong African influence and poetic titles, exploring Vinny’s interest in Dogon and Benin art. In combination with miniature modelling figures he creates situations and image bite narratives with such beautiful simplicity and humour.

The river and its castaways are speaking now.
