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.
The Vector Gallery located on 154 East Broadway, New York is the first Satanic art gallery in the Lower East Side- and the first I’ve ever seen that’s permanent.That link is to their official tumblr, and you can find most of this information there, but only at the cost of feeling like part of your soul has died.In fact, in order to be able to enter the back room of the gallery, you literally have to formally sell your soul to Satan. I shit you not. The artist himself, JJ Brine, has declared it “The Official Art Gallery of Satan” and has stated in interviews that the place is, in and of itself, a living entity. He has claimed that certain things have fallen off walls and rearranged themselves, and that the gallery sends messages to him. The gallery is said to have a very strong, unique energy of its own- an energy I feel simply from even looking at the images of it.JJ has also founded and lead a new religious he calls “Vectorism”. The difference between Vectorism and Satanism are that Vectorism actually recognises Satan as lord and saviour. This is not the ideology that Satanism is founded upon, which is that you’re free to believe and do whatever you want without consequence. You’re your own god. But not with Vectorism, no. With Vectorism, Satan is GOD and is to be respected, feared, and worshipped. They hold religious ceremonies as well. The walls are littered with “post-human art”, a term he claims Satan chose. The entire gallery is littered with art dedicated to Satan, Charles Manson (whom has been named their church’s official religious leader), desecration of classical art, hooved and horned creatures with outreached hands and warm smiles, Baphomet-like figures, and yes- heaps upon heaps of Illuminati-related symbolism. It’s also full to the brim with all sorts of reflective materials, mirrors, silver spray paint, glitter, bright neon lights, etc. This man is leading a movement all of its own, and it’s rapidly gaining in popularity.This man is sick, and he is dangerous.I wish all of this was one great big joke- but unfortunately, it most certainly doesn’t seem to be whatsoever.
