White Cubicle Toilet Gallery is honoured to present a special exhibition as part of the celebration of George and Dragon's 10th anniversary:

TETINE
THEY WANT TO GET RID OF THE STREET VENDORS (Action N3)
Tuesday December 18, 2012
8:00 PM to Midnight
Exhibition by Tetine, and Tetine on the dj decks!
The George and Dragon Public House, 2 Hackney Road, London E2

They Want To Get Rid of The Street Vendors is part of Tetine's ongoing series of informal DIY guerilla street/video actions on the semantics of self-piracy, sound object disfunctionality, reconfiguration of goods & auto sampling tactics. An improvised ‘camelo’ (informal street selling point) with banners, selected items and manufactured CDs will be set up at the glorious White Cubicle toilette. They will be there to emanate a sexually charged anti-industry "wall of sound”. Pop and anti-pop eating themselves. The death of the record. The record of the time. Visitors are encouraged to unglue Tetine's cds from the wall and take them home!

TETINE:
Tetine are artists/musicians Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado. The pair met in 1995 in Brazil while taking part in the local underground art punk scene of São Paulo. Since then they have created a multitude of works from baile funk performances to electronica, spoken word & atonal orchestral music incursions for plays, from experimental radio shows to ritualistic street actions, artist films, installations and independent curatorial projects. Bruno and Eliete have carved an unusual artistic path constantly exploring the boundaries between music, art, video and performance. They have made a series of ritualistic performances and have extensively exhibited art films and video throughout Europe and South America. The duo’s live events range from rock gigs to gallery installations; from opening ‘Tropicalia – A Revolution in Brazilian Culture’ exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London to numerous art performances for galleries, museums, art spaces, cinemas and festivals around the world. Actions were shown from Paris (Palais de Tokyo), to Chicago (The Wire’s Adventures in Modern Music Festival) and Sonar including live performances at Museu Serralves in Porto, A Foundation, Liverpool Biennal, Hebbel Am Ufer in Berlin, Whitechapel Gallery, Frankfurter Kunstverein, National Museum of Contemporary Art of Norway, Sternessen Museum amongst many others.

A wild mix-up of Punk-Funk/NewWave/Post-Punk/Baile-Bass, Tetine’s music is frequently described as an unconventional mixture of raw punky energy and attitude with musical influences that range from artists such as Throbbing Gristle, Tuxedomoon to Kraftwerk & Can, but also incorporating heavily the more experimental side of Brazilian pop experimentalists such as Rogerio Sganzerla, Helena Ignes, Os Mutantes, Novos Baianos and the Rio Baile Funk scene. Tetine have also been instrumental in bringing the Brazilian underground music scene to the attention of the UK for a number of years. They compiled, presented and mixed the first ever album of Baile Funk outside of Brazil (Slum Dunk Presents Funk Carioca Mixed by Tetine, 2004 released on Mr Bongo Records) as well as an essential primer to early-80s Post-Punk from Sao Paulo, the acclaimed album The Sexual Life of The Savages, released on Soul Jazz Records in 2006). Both these albums have influenced an entire new generation of DJs, beat-makers and music writers around the world. Tetine have also run the Slum Dunk radio show on Resonance Fm 104.4 - pretty much since the station's inception in 2003. On Slum Dunk they broadcast a multitude of obscure and unexpected music from Brazil and beyond – including live interviews with hundreds of special guests, live and improvised sets of other artists and experimental broadcasting.
