Aven Zirself + Wei Lou from 8pm
Introverts from 9pm
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.
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.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE presents…
A 4 hour live drawing by the infamous Jack Gobsmob and International Nobody. Event kicks off at 6pm @ Seven at Brixton this Friday 17th February 2012. Seven are relaunching their exhibition space, so there are sure to be plenty of other treats in store…
Jack Gobsmob is from London and likes punk music, low-brow art and comic books. He screen prints posters and flyers for gigs, slogans, and things that he has made. Jack bakes nice cakes, plays guitar in legendary south-east London punk band ‘Mummy Says I’m Special’ and helps out at Screaming Matriarch – an online art store specialising in vinyl and knitted dolls. If you meet Jack be sure not to look him directly in the face, he takes this as a sign of disrespect and can become violent. Always show deference.
International Nobody attempts to make pretty pictures for walls, ceilings and
skateboards often, without much luck but sometimes they turn out alright and people think about buying them.
East London based screen-printer and illustrator, International Nobody, creates vibrant and bold imagery in a style that the artist describes as ‘low-brow’, ‘subversive’ and ‘infantile’. Having completed 4 years of art school, International Nobody’s creative career began in the vinyl toy industry as a designer/maker after rejecting (and being rejected by) the fine art world.
Comic book monsters, femme fatales, apocalyptic angels and creatures that attract and repulse frequently appear in International Nobody’s work. Think separated, stylized and ‘street’.
Influences include: everyday occurrences in the inner city, gothic fairytales, freaks, circus & carney show culture, racy art nouveau, lucha libre, punk rock, hippity hop, Halloween, retro film posters, comic book universes, J-horror, amateur pornography, and the kind of British-ness one would find in the Carry-On movies of the 60’s and 70’s.
