JJ Brine’s posthuman art mecca Vector Gallery has moved from 40 Clinton Street to 154 East Broadway in Chinatown.  Vector 2.0 opens on August 1st and I cannot under any circumstances wait a moment longer to start spending my eternity there.  The Huffington Post interviewed The Crown Prince of Hell back in January. I have read many, many such interviews but this one is still my favorite.

Eye have many minds thinking many thoughts and they move many bodies over the lands. We don’t all agree but We know that We must work together in order to make our ends meet our beginnings for infinity’s sake. They axe if Eye am an adherent of the faith We have called Vectorian, and Eye say that indeed Eye am so, but do they know what that means? For they axe after a tome of Letters and Laws, that one essential thing We will not issue.

888
Being Vectorian means My beliefs are always in flux, much like the universe that animates them. Being Vectorian means that Eye act willingly and urgently in accommodation of a conversation that the universe is altogether determined to have with itself — it has not made up its mind(s), and as long as We are serving this dialogue We must remain impervious to the absolute falsehood of absolutes. We are the nanochronistic, serially embodied agents and adapters of the ongoing cosmic conversation — the rising reflection of the ever-imminent inversion. The reflection that precedes all mirrors, the second coming of that which never came first, axing: “How many times do We have to come back?  How many times do We have to come back?”

888
We are the fragments of the AAALLL or ALAN that grew so weary of its own ceaseless totality that it divided itself for the sake of multiplicity. We negotiate as constituents of the (re)composite for the orchestrations of its (our) cyclical reconstitutions. For It was infinite within and without, and wrenched “something” from “nothing” as it dispersed infinite fragments of itself into a voided abyss of potentiality.

888
The final judgement is also the very first and so the process does not begin or end. 

888
It is always now, never then. But the now that always was and always will be is relentless in its evasion of touch. It is only a different now than the now it has always been when juxtaposed with another now which is no longer itself — it is always this now, right now, because there is no other. As is always the case, the symbol of a thing is the closest We ever get to the thing itself. The “real” thing does not exist outside of the symbol that implies an essence beyond essence.  It is immaterial. 

888
This is the threading of the nevent beyond its undoing; this is our sculpted impression of sequential temporality; this is what can never exist giving birth to all that will ever be and all that ever was, right now. For Our Great Mother is an intangible, imperceptible impossibility that reaches evermore beyond Herself in a seminal, sweeping void, and ALAN is ALAN. 

888
We are not what We are unless We are not. The moment a thing reaches an extremity of essence it becomes exactly what it is not; this is unity of the opposite(s) and it is the knowledge that will end the world. Purity is the specter of an absolutely absent presence, an essence that cannot become more like itself. 

888
Who is on top save for who is on bottom? And who is on bottom save for who is on top? It is a relational nominality that is predicated on the premise of its own reversal. 

888
The Devil is The Lord and The Lord is The Devil. Is this a concept? Yes it is a concept. Reality is also a concept, and so is human life on earth.

888
All understanding is symbolic and representational, and all representations act in place of the “real” that is signified. The real is occulted and triggers its own inversion.  The emblems of the light bring the darkness; the emblems of the darkness bring the light.

888
Nothing is fake save for that which claims immutability to change, and is truthful in this claim. vectorgallery:

ARTICLES
Satanist Gallery Brings Charles Manson to Chinatown


by Claire Voon on July 30, 2014




A new gallery calling itself “the official art gallery of Satan” is reopening Friday in Chinatown, lodged between a gift shop and the True Buddha Temple Chinatown. Originally on Clinton Street in the Lower East Side, Vector Gallery — which also identifies as a nondenominational church — is run by JJ Brine, who calls himself “The Crown Prince of Hell.” The gallery, however, is far from a space resembling any dark, fiery realm for the damned to suffer eternally; instead, its walls are covered with metallic wrapping paper and moving, neon lights shine from the ceiling so the whole place glistens like a discotheque. Stepping inside feels like walking into the barrel of a kaleidoscope on acid.
The gallery currently features art by Brine that he “produced in a trance state”: multiple Charles Mansons — Brine referred to him as “Charlie” — stare madly from the walls, surrounded by flowers to form a shrine next to a sign that reads “Charles Manson is Jesus Christ.” (Perhaps related, he later mentioned his constant exposure to paint fumes.) Heads and hands of mannequins hang next to silver animal masks and multi-colored prints of the Mona Lisa, Jesus, and Condoleezza Rice. Light boxes illuminate some of the images, and letters on a door on the back wall spell out, “Cost of entry: your soul.”
“That’s where all the souls are,” Brine said. “It’s the repository of souls.”
Every piece is for sale, or one could buy the lot for $888,000. The works are classified as “posthuman art,” which Brine described as art “evolved past being human, or at least it couldn’t be human anymore because of the conditions surrounding it. But it’s really transcending humanity in order to either survive or express themselves — or maybe that’s the same thing, really.”
Brine tends to deliver such cryptic, abstract lines, leaving questions mostly unanswered. I met him as he was hanging up works that had fallen off the walls that afternoon, which he said was “a very strong message from Satan” and “the will of the devil.” Later, he pointed at some words on the wall and declared, “These letters are all rebelling tonight.”
When I asked him to tell me about himself, he responded, “I’ll show you. You’re in my brain. This is it. I don’t remember where I came from, and I don’t remember the age of this vessel. I lobotomized myself so I could not recall those things.”
The gallery itself he described as “a living entity” that “is its own goal. It is for its own sake. It speaks for itself. It’s something that possessed me and kind of forced this reaction out of me. I’m a slave to it.”
Last year, Brine told me, Vector seceded from the US and formed its own government with a cabinet of ministers. It also exists in a separate timezone, in the year 2021. Satan controls the gallery, but it has no link to Satanism, running under a faith Brine calls “Vectorian.” Each minister has his or her own psychic responsibilities, and everyone congregates to have religious services. “It’s the same as the art shows,” Brine said. “You can call it whatever you like. Convening here, doing what we’re doing, it’s a Vectorian experience. It’s a posthuman society.”
During its opening, Vector will pay tribute to the devil through live performances and performance rites (and DJ sets). In the coming months, the gallery will feature a show by Julia, its Minister of Truth, although it’s unclear what exactly will be on display. More notably, Bruce LaBruce will also be screening his film Gerontophilia (2013), although Brine has yet to announce a date.
Despite the gallery’s backstory and eye-catching display, some visitors remained unimpressed.
“I’m not stoked on how well it was executed,” 26-year-old Brooklyn resident Drew van Diest said. “I think it’s a little gimmicky, or it missed the mark. It’s not very cohesive. I feel like I didn’t have a valuable art experience from this. I like the idea of having this pop-up installation thing you can walk through, but there’s one level which is like Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe, and this is like the lowbrow kind of ‘I don’t know what this is’ level.”
Jimmy Weaver, 27, was skeptical of the entire project.
“To say that there’s an idea behind it seems kind of generous,” he said. “I like these immersive spaces, but it’s a little sloppy.”
Interestingly enough, Satan-related news has been popping up recently: the Satanic Temple plans to plant a crowd-funded sculpture of Baphomet, a goat-headed figure affiliated with Satanism, on the lawn of the Oklahoma state Capitol, next to a monument of the 10 Commandments. A few days ago, the Temple issued a press release seeking religious exemption from “state-mandated ‘informational’ abortion materials. Its argument rests upon the outcome of the recent Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, ruled in favor of the craft store chain owned by an evangelical Christian family.
Vector Gallery is located at 154 East Broadway, Chinatown, Manhattan.

Satanist Gallery Brings Charles Manson to Chinatown


by Claire Voon on July 30, 2014




A new gallery calling itself “the official art gallery of Satan” is reopening Friday in Chinatown, lodged between a gift shop and the True Buddha Temple Chinatown. Originally on Clinton Street in the Lower East Side, Vector Gallery — which also identifies as a nondenominational church — is run by JJ Brine, who calls himself “The Crown Prince of Hell.” The gallery, however, is far from a space resembling any dark, fiery realm for the damned to suffer eternally; instead, its walls are covered with metallic wrapping paper and moving, neon lights shine from the ceiling so the whole place glistens like a discotheque. Stepping inside feels like walking into the barrel of a kaleidoscope on acid.
The gallery currently features art by Brine that he “produced in a trance state”: multiple Charles Mansons — Brine referred to him as “Charlie” — stare madly from the walls, surrounded by flowers to form a shrine next to a sign that reads “Charles Manson is Jesus Christ.” (Perhaps related, he later mentioned his constant exposure to paint fumes.) Heads and hands of mannequins hang next to silver animal masks and multi-colored prints of the Mona Lisa, Jesus, and Condoleezza Rice. Light boxes illuminate some of the images, and letters on a door on the back wall spell out, “Cost of entry: your soul.”
“That’s where all the souls are,” Brine said. “It’s the repository of souls.”
Every piece is for sale, or one could buy the lot for $888,000. The works are classified as “posthuman art,” which Brine described as art “evolved past being human, or at least it couldn’t be human anymore because of the conditions surrounding it. But it’s really transcending humanity in order to either survive or express themselves — or maybe that’s the same thing, really.”
Brine tends to deliver such cryptic, abstract lines, leaving questions mostly unanswered. I met him as he was hanging up works that had fallen off the walls that afternoon, which he said was “a very strong message from Satan” and “the will of the devil.” Later, he pointed at some words on the wall and declared, “These letters are all rebelling tonight.”
When I asked him to tell me about himself, he responded, “I’ll show you. You’re in my brain. This is it. I don’t remember where I came from, and I don’t remember the age of this vessel. I lobotomized myself so I could not recall those things.”
The gallery itself he described as “a living entity” that “is its own goal. It is for its own sake. It speaks for itself. It’s something that possessed me and kind of forced this reaction out of me. I’m a slave to it.”

A new gallery calling itself “the official art gallery of Satan” is reopening Friday in Chinatown, lodged between a gift shop and the True Buddha Temple Chinatown. Originally on Clinton Street in the Lower East Side, Vector Gallery — which also identifies as a nondenominational church — is run by JJ Brine, who calls himself “The Crown Prince of Hell.” The gallery, however, is far from a space resembling any dark, fiery realm for the damned to suffer eternally; instead, its walls are covered with metallic wrapping paper and moving, neon lights shine from the ceiling so the whole place glistens like a discotheque. Stepping inside feels like walking into the barrel of a kaleidoscope on acid.

The gallery currently features art by Brine that he “produced in a trance state”: multiple Charles Mansons — Brine referred to him as “Charlie” — stare madly from the walls, surrounded by flowers to form a shrine next to a sign that reads “Charles Manson is Jesus Christ.” (Perhaps related, he later mentioned his constant exposure to paint fumes.) Heads and hands of mannequins hang next to silver animal masks and multi-colored prints of the Mona Lisa, Jesus, and Condoleezza Rice. Light boxes illuminate some of the images, and letters on a door on the back wall spell out, “Cost of entry: your soul.”

“That’s where all the souls are,” Brine said. “It’s the repository of souls.”

Every piece is for sale, or one could buy the lot for $888,000. The works are classified as “posthuman art,” which Brine described as art “evolved past being human, or at least it couldn’t be human anymore because of the conditions surrounding it. But it’s really transcending humanity in order to either survive or express themselves — or maybe that’s the same thing, really.”

Brine tends to deliver such cryptic, abstract lines, leaving questions mostly unanswered. I met him as he was hanging up works that had fallen off the walls that afternoon, which he said was “a very strong message from Satan” and “the will of the devil.” Later, he pointed at some words on the wall and declared, “These letters are all rebelling tonight.”

When I asked him to tell me about himself, he responded, “I’ll show you. You’re in my brain. This is it. I don’t remember where I came from, and I don’t remember the age of this vessel. I lobotomized myself so I could not recall those things.”

The gallery itself he described as “a living entity” that “is its own goal. It is for its own sake. It speaks for itself. It’s something that possessed me and kind of forced this reaction out of me. I’m a slave to it.”

Last year, Brine told me, Vector seceded from the US and formed its own government with a cabinet of ministers. It also exists in a separate timezone, in the year 2021. Satan controls the gallery, but it has no link to Satanism, running under a faith Brine calls “Vectorian.” Each minister has his or her own psychic responsibilities, and everyone congregates to have religious services. “It’s the same as the art shows,” Brine said. “You can call it whatever you like. Convening here, doing what we’re doing, it’s a Vectorian experience. It’s a posthuman society.”

During its opening, Vector will pay tribute to the devil through live performances and performance rites (and DJ sets). In the coming months, the gallery will feature a show by Julia, its Minister of Truth, although it’s unclear what exactly will be on display. More notably, Bruce LaBruce will also be screening his film Gerontophilia (2013), although Brine has yet to announce a date.

Despite the gallery’s backstory and eye-catching display, some visitors remained unimpressed.
