Taking us to the next level in the cold breath of morning, our artists transition from the Tobacco Dock blaze to the cool heights of 2 Clove Crescent, East India Dock. A month long exhibition giving the Winter Pride artists a luxury showcase in this iconic multi-level location.

The inaugural Winter Pride UK launched at Tobacco Dock on Saturday 8th February 2014. This historic event featured an art competition for emerging artists, the Winter Pride UK Art Awards 2014, and a breathtaking exhibition of installation art and sculpture from a diverse group of international artists, now showing at East India Dock.

Caitlin Mavrolean, the Creative Director behind the annual Art for Youth exhibition at the Royal College of Art, has given the Winter Pride artists the opportunity to exhibit as part of a large new experimental group show entitled Office Sessions in a vast disused office block.

The Winter Pride artists will inject moments of colour and passion into the eerie hide-and-seek corporate stillness. An exhibition curated by Simon Tarrant and Yvette Blackwood, taking over the whole of the 4th floor. A brave new Eden. Adult playgrounds and abandonment. Separation and togetherness. Love and longing. Pride and prejudice. Madness and majesty. Seek out secret performances in hidden rooms.Take a second bite of the apple.

Alan Pascuzzi | Alice Stallard | Bronac McNeill | Carl Hoare | Celia Gregory | Dana Fox | Jae Yong Choi | Jesse Olwen | Kate Wragg | Kristina Butigan | Mercedes Ferrari | Rachel Carter | Rob Ellis | Roxana Halls | Ruth McLees | Shauna Richardson | Trygves Skogrand | Vanja Karas | Vardana Aslanyan | XXXora

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.


Participating artists:

Aven Zirself | Benedict Romain | Bruno Jamaica | Celia Arias | Chanyanuch Hongsongtham Jessica Kilpatrck | Louise Seijen ten Hoorn | International Nobody | Introverts | Jack Gobsmob | Lyndsay Martin | Miguel Ivorra | Red Pig Flower | Ting-An Lin | Vinny Montag | Wei Lou

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.

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.

Aephie Huimi – balloon murder murmur
Andre Pinto – film installation and sound art
Apple Tart as living sculpture
Benedict Romain – sculpture
Bruno Jamaica – installation sculpture

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

The private view took place on 23rd March, with a Rowdy Squid Set, Aephie Huimi’s balloon murder murmur with dark sound art by Andros O Morto and Wei Lou, and living sculpture created and performed by Nerida Ackland, Apple Tart and Charlie Buckitt.

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.

Transition Collective present a site specific art installation by Bruno Jamaica in one of five exhibition rooms @ SEVEN at Brixton, 4th November – 4th December.

Bruno Jamaica: Seven Islands

The Artist/Installation
Our featured artist Bruno Jamaica works predominantly with high impact installation art, focussing on socio-political themes. For the launch of SEVEN’s exhibition space, he has chosen to create seven suspended islands in celebration of what it is be human. These are islands of necessities, desires and motivations, exploring the concept of the city, travel, interaction and the individual.

The Venue
Located within Brixton Market, SEVEN at Brixton is a new bar in an old suitcase store. What makes SEVEN unique is that London-based Liam Brown and Jonny Rushton have maintained the distressed 1930′s features and are turning over the upstairs rooms of the bar to local artists to curate their own space.

Find us @ Unit 7, Market Row, SW9 8LB – just off Electric Lane, off Coldharbour Lane.
