front666TRANSITION COLLECTIVE and EPIC PRODUCTIONS present ‘Kubrick’s Lift’
7pm – 2am | 22nd May | @ EPIC, Dalston, N16 8BH

Here comes a transitionary summer of love.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE invite you to a night of art and music exploring love, risk and community – at EPIC, Dalston’s newest and biggest venue, and in association with SoulCloud and The Imaginary Beings.

Blood delivers necessary nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells.The ardent truth. Don’t capture rapture. Uncage pulsating hearts. Savour saliva rushes. Open your arms. Follow lines that link, souls that reach. The flesh that sinks and sucks. The twisted melt. The hunger stroke. The psychic bleed. The human strawberry slick. The flirt. The score. The hit. Broken eggs and spilt milk. Filthy sheets, velvet lips, roses, violets. Waxy limbs and wide eyes. The penetrating stare. The unity, community, the interplanetary soup. Take Kubrick’s Lift into the stratosphere.

Winter_Pride_2014_logo.5.1Baby, it’s cold outside… Get ready for Winter Pride UK on 8 February 2014!

Hidden in an underground maze of Victorian warehouse vaults in east London lies a winter paradise. Step over the cobblestones of London’s Tobacco Docks, and be transported back in time to a forbidden Victorian marketplace and funfair, full of tattoos, fire, art and music for one night only.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE have been invited to participate in London’s first ever Winter Pride! The TC artists will create a large scale installation at the heart of this awe inspiring venue, explore an affront to Narnia.The flipside of a contained delusion of dubious intent. The roles we play with each and every day, the grey area between fiction and reality. The elements, colours, shapes and sounds we choose to heighten and express our inner child, our inner goddess, our inner king, our inner queen, our inner beast. The fantasy made real, to the max. Who are you? Why do you do what you do? How are you writing the story of your life? What are the mythologies from your past that shape you today, what do you bury, what do you honour, what do you warp into wondrous disguises? What twists and turns you underground, overground, through secret passages and ejector seats. One door closes another opens. Mirror mirror on the wall…

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…

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…

'Guernica With Meatballs' by Jack Gobsmob + International Nobody (drawn live at Con:FRONT 2012 @ Vibe Gallery)

Jack Gobsmob
http://jackgobsmob.wordpress.com/designprint-stuff/

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
http://www.internationalnobody.com/

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.

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.
