‘SEX SHOP’-Transition Gallery London

We are in this! Get on down and see our sculpture featured in Part one of the exhibition!

Internal clitoris (one size does not fit all)

Originally a highlight of the 2014 Folkestone Fringe, Sex Shop is swapping the salty sea air for the thrills and

spills of London’s East End, when it takes up residence in Transition Gallery at the end of February.

The curators invited 50 people – primarily artists and designers, but also practitioners from other disciplines – to create a prototype version of their own sex or fetish object. The responses they received span a wide range of different media: from 3D maquettes, to 2D visualizations, to audio-visual pieces, and reference a cornucopia of sexual practices, fetishes and merchandise. They are by turns personal, playful, provocative and usable.

From a 3D printed insect’s penis to a crucifixion butt plug, bondage tea towels to spray on condoms, homemade porn to homemade jam, Sex Shop has something to tickle every fancy – no matter how unusual.

All the pieces on display in Sex Shop will be for sale and the exhibition will coincide with a special sex themed edition of Garageland magazine.

Sex Shop has been conceived and curated by Sarah Gillham, Darren Narin and Jack Stokoe.

Massages from the second brain- Opening Fri 4th April 6-9pm

Looser Still

 

You know its coming but then there it actually is, your early thirties has arrived. It just kind of creeps up on you and then before you know it, has you anxiously by the throat. Thankfully, through the asphyxiation you can start to see things a little clearer; you can meditate your way through the issues.
Love reveals that it can be a getaway drug potentially leading you onto harder stuff; you take particular note of your diet and notice your guts are not a frictionless log flume but a much more complicated kind of fun; and those hoops you jump through to get to adulthood, the portals of your life, are in fact mesmerising forces.
Gradually you find you are sliding out of the pressures that want you to assume certain attitudes toward success and status, to become standard hetero gender roles. From this anxious climate you dose up on the power of failure; lubing up on its goofy freedoms and going with the flow, whether it’s the flow of sexual urges, digestion or meditative space.

Roxy Topia and Paddy Gould present new drawings and sculpture for their first show in LA. They live, work and sleep together in London, England.

Until April 27th

Open noon – 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday and for special events.
Monte vista Projects, 5442 Monte Vista St Los Angeles, California 90042
Project LALO
Openings:
■London, UK » March 5-8, 2014
■Los Angeles, US » April 3-5, 2014

Project LALO is an international exchange between dynamic emerging contemporary art spaces in London and Los Angeles. ARTRA Curatorial has partnered with Campbell Works, in London, to bring this 10 venue event to both cities – March in London and April in Los Angeles.

Artists make art, and galleries exhibit art, but what of the Artist-run-space? Spanning two cities and a large body of water, Project LALO explores the worlds of 10 artist run spaces in London and Los Angeles.

By pairing galleries and creating the opportunity to exchange both their artists and their spaces, Project LALO will present five exhibitions in London (March 20104) and five exhibitions in Los Angeles (April 2014) showcasing a deep cross section of current practice from the two cities.

Each space will present a curated exhibition comprising both visiting artists and their ‘local’ or represented artists, with an emphasis to include work by those who run the spaces.
