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.

Vibe Gallery is located in the old Biscuit Factory. 5 minutes from Bermondsey tube, go right on the main road, and turn right into Drummond Road. Turn right at Clements Road. Walk through the big central gates to the back, turn left down the alleyway – the gallery is next door to the cafe and reception. Vibe Gallery will have a fully licensed bar.
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…
Find us upstairs @ Seven at Brixton, 7 Market Row, off Electric Lane, off Coldharbour Lane.
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.
Find us upstairs @ Unit 7, Market Row, SW9 8LB – just off Electric Lane, off Coldharbour Lane.
