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.

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.

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.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE present a new installation by Patrick Collier and Lee Pitman in one of five exhibition rooms @ SEVEN at Brixton. Opening 6pm, 5th Jan

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from the mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” Joseph Campbell in his seminal work The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949)

Patrick Collier and Lee Pitman share a fascination with modern and classical mythologies. This collaborative installation explores the hero myth. Universal motifs of adventure and transformation are employed in a multi-faceted visual homage to Campbell’s concept of the ‘monomyth’, which has served as a cultural framework for countless contemporary narratives.

The intricately laser cut imagery of the sculptural rings are inspired by the Book of Revelations and the opening of the Seven Seals, bringing forth the Horsemen of Conquest, War, Famine, Death before the final end of the world.

Screen printed illustrations evoke the narrative of the hero’s adventure, depicting the archetypal characters and their gifts, knowledge and tests to be encountered along the way: the wise old man, the goddess, the trickster, herald and villain. Above looms the belly of the whale – an unknown void that threatens to swallow the hero but ultimately represents a sphere of rebirth.
