Nighttime at The Hollows Dance series: INCREMENTATIONS MARCH - JUNE

Weekly, Fridays 9-10pm

For variations in performance, obsessions for sound tracks and incremental graduations in the physical. 

Through consecutive improvisations and routines, how to affect gradual perfections of body’s performance through merging affectual dance movements drawing from Eastern, Western and Southern wisdoms? For Incrementations, dancer/curator Pırıl Gündüz is collaborating with 4 female individuals, from varying age groups, who have developed their unique practices and have mastered ancient techniques, for a participatory dance performance on Friday nights from 9-10pm with 10 acts, in which performing together reveals different strengths of each woman’s built muscles in accordance with their bodily backgrounds. Narrowly defined subsets of sound tracks and bodily focus areas allow the viewer to draw on the micro yet substantial differences among each dancer’s bodily intelligence and the perpetuating ways they connect to and make use of the repeating style of selected dance tracks.

MARC LAFIA, filmmaker - in conversation with - CHARLOTTE COTTON, of ICP

“Seeing and Seeing Again” Presenting the experience of seeing again. Seeing an image and then seeing it - again. I want to ask, really see, what is this seeing again, which raises the question, what is seeing and what is again. What do we see when we are seeing. And how did we take notice of this and not that. words we don’t see at all.

Marc Lafia is an American artist and filmmaker whose work emerges with network culture as it changes the nature of the image and the circulation of cultural objects. An early innovator in the “post-internet,” he turned to it often incisively and humorously in his computational games, prints, films and installations to reexamine art and its history as an ecstatic artifact. He has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Tate Online, the ZKM, the Centre Pompidou, Anthology Film Archives, International Film Festival Rotterdam, He has taught at Stanford University, the San Francisco Art Institute, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Pratt Institute and Columbia University.

LATE NIGHT: GENESES — Kerry Lessard

NOVEMBER 27, 10PM-6AM

Performance of the artist on the path to their work. Join the musicians, writers, and artists during the genesis of their current works. For Late Night: Genesis, we turn the main gallery of The Hollows Artspace into the artist's studio, with their furniture, from desks, to beds, to objects peculiar to their creation. Witness their unique methods of working and ways of composing, thinking, studying, rehearsing.

KERRY LESSARD

Kerry Lessard will be turning the studio wall space into an expanded diagram of her research of various crimes in her hometown of Manchester, New Hampshire. Collaging these letters, federal documents and photos will then give way to the making of drawings and paintings which will eventually be incorporated into the installation.

Kerry Lessard’s work is concerned with the politics of viewing violence. Her father’s research from his career as a homicide detective is used as source material. The paintings and drawings she makes are snapshots of seemingly anodyne scenes but are depictions of people and places affected by crime.

Adrian Platkovsky: The Backpack Project

November 21, 6pm-10pm

The Backpack Project is a collection of thirty 15x15 centimeter-sized canvas showing geometric forms which together constitute one abstract composition.

The creation of "Backpack" was inspired by the idea of artistic journey during which the artwork is displayed in variety of spaces all around the world. 

One of its elements, just like a footprint, will stay at the place of each exhibition. The composition is then complemented with a new, different piece consistent with the rest of the collection.

The background differs as the artists treats each as a barometer showing his emotional attitude towards places discovered and people met, capturing the atmosphere and uniqueness of each place he visits as he intends to promote the idea of art as a medium that crosses all barriers and borders. The final exhibition and the end of the project will take place in his hometown, Cieszyn, Poland. Exact date of this symbolic return home is not determined. The result exhibition is a summary of The Backpack Project, a collection of artworks and a video clips showing incidents, and places he experienced during his journey.

CHRIS CARR, poet - in conversation with - Leanne Stella, Curator ofArtin Flux Harlem

 

“Invisible” A discussion and examination of race, fine art, ethno-centricism, and technology. Black people are American, yet we are segregated and treated as if our art, our history, our culture is not inextricably linked to America or is somehow foreign. Why?

Christopher Carr is an indie artist in Brooklyn; photographer, emcee and founder of Brooklyn Wildlife. Carr attended Morehouse College for his undergraduate studies (sociology) and Columbia University for graduate work in Medieval Studies. He is intrigued by the history of cultural expressions, power relationships, semiotics, post-modernist sociological theory and interpersonal dynamics; with the intent of challenging contemporary themes relating to normalcy, deviancy, tradition and alternative culture via the platform of nude photography.

The Hollows Filmhouse — Tomie Seo "Renaissance 2016"

SATURDAYS NOVEMBER

Casting, Filming, and Screening

The film depicts the hidden social issues of the modern society in an uncanny and surrealistic way. The title Renaissance 2016 symbolizes the modern version of Renaissance, which was a moment of the rise of the modern world after the middle age. In this sense, Renaissance can be seen as the moment of the industrial revolution after the depression, and today, the contemporary Renaissance would be appeared in this unstable moment with the world-wide terrorism.

The storyline of the film mainly consists of 5 chapters: Birth, Glows, Chaos, Death and Rebirth. As the story goes, each chapter always starts with a scene of a letter appearing after pressing a switch button. The total 5 letters complete in a word at the end. The characters of the film wear KKK costume in Medieval-style dress that illustrates the concept and spirituality of white-supremacy in an archaic way. It is also an implication of modern racism, which is not wholly visible and does not exist only between black and white but is spread among all the races. The whole scenario transpires with surrealistic and uncanny visual effects in the stage of a modern house, which draws a contrast between the characters in the medieval clothes that identify their thoughts and styles. In the end, the cross is burnt and a word made of the 5 letters from the each chapter is completed, finding the meaning of the modern Renaissance in either negative or positive sense.

Rubik’s Plane - Artist: Talita Zaragoza - A collaboration between Meural and The Hollows

  • The Hollows, 151 Bedford Ave Williamsburg, Brooklyn NY 11211

Curated by Pırıl Gündüz  October 8-13, 2016  2-6PM   

Opening reception: Saturday October 8, 2016, 6-8pm

Inspired by Rubik’s cube, The Hollows and Meural present Rubik’s Plane, a digital installation of Brazilian artist Talita Zaragozas drawings with ink and graphite on paper. Comprised of 9 Meural Canvases, the installation enables the viewer to scroll right and left among segments of three different drawings at once while magnifying the intricacies of Zaragoza’s topographical signature. 

Talita Zaragoza, born in São Paulo in 1985, works mainly with drawings and photography. In 2008 received her B.A. in Fine Arts and in 2010 her M.A. in History of Art. Since 2012, she’s lived in New York, where she studied at ICP – International Center for Photography. She still lives in Brooklyn developing her personal projects inspired mainly by nature, by the micro and macro, action and reaction, transience and permutable aesthetics. She also works as studio manager for artist Janaina Tschäpe. 

Pırıl Gündüz is a curator/artist at The Hollows Artspace live/work/exhibit residency based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Her latest work includes "Nighttime at The Hollows" performance series and Electrique, a group show comprised of electrical pieces that avoid the digital.  

Meural is an art technology startup with the mission of fostering art discovery and expression, and to make art a part of everyone's daily life. Their flagship product is the Meural Canvas, a framed screen designed to be at once true-to-life, aesthetically beautiful, responsive, intuitive, modern, and simple. By bringing the world of art and photography into homes of all shapes and sizes, Meural strives to democratize art, both in cost and access.

Erote: Late Night Opening

On View: September 7 - October 30, 2016
Curator: Pırıl Gündüz
Curatorial Assistant: Yangxingyue Wang

Opening reception: Wednesday, September 7, 10pm-2am

A speculative survey of body and its relation to garments, from the cave to the web.

Romance with Material
Flirt with Self
Adorn the World

The upcoming exhibition at The Hollows Townhouse on Bedford Ave in Williamsburg will take place throughout the building, spanning 10 galleries on 4 floors and outdoors space, The Hollows Eastyard, with a late night opening reception one day before New York Fashion Week. 

Erote approaches the concept of garment as a means to frame the body, assumed as a catalyst for achieving affects, foremost in the Self, including design ideas from ancient times to very recent innovations, flattening Time, and treating each designer or the stylist as an individual who is in search for a pleasant functionality. Exhibited pieces are accessories that preserve one’s body and help the wearer communicate with the world and getting by in it. 

Ruby Chishti achieves to feminize the little gold sequin dress as Vixole x Yuxi Cao captures the Pokémon at the feet. Stephanie Liu grasps the need of the nomad right from the core: hyradate and run. Mark Newport’s knit sweaters combine the heroic and the protective in the artist’s mother’s gestures, one in the form of masculine and vulnerable Donatello. Nitcha Fame Tothong’s Text-neck is a brilliant new jewelry device that will save our natural chic postures for years to come. The best bag possible, by Maison Martin Margiela from 2013 will be on view as well as two 2016 pieces in gold and silver by Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. Lastly, Matthew Keff is taking over the outdoors runway at The Hollows Eastyard with his live animations, paired with Kiichiro Adachi’s light whirlpool. And a new telephone booth on the porch on Bedford Avenue. 

Media include: 
Historical garments, new fabrics, reproductions, wearable devices, folkloric costumes, multifunctional accessories, video, photography, light

Electrique Programming Evening Lecture "Until it Sleeps: on the Home at Night" by Dylan Trigg

 Electrique Programming Evening Lecture

Until it Sleeps: on the Home at Night 

Dylan Trigg 

University of Memphis/University College Dublin

Saturday, August 6, 2016,

8-10PM 

The history of the home within the phenomenological tradition is distinguished. Taking its strengths from experiences of intimacy and unity, phenomenology has proceeded to draw us within ourselves, finding therein an entire world that is comprised from the primal sanctuary of the home. Such a love of place – truly, a topophilia –remains one of the method’s greatest strength. Yet this partial focus is also phenomenology’s most acute limit. Overlooked in this veneration of intimate spatiality are those places that dislodge 

and disrupt our being-in-the-world. In this talk, Trigg explore the underside of phenomenology’s love of home, a side that appears to us when daylight recedes, invoking the darkness of an insomniac space that deforms the image we employ to render the home homely. 

Dylan Trigg is Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Memphis, Department of Philosophy and at University College Dublin, School of Philosophy. He is the author of several books including: Topophobia: a Phenomenology of Anxiety (London: Bloomsbury, 2016); The Thing: a Phenomenology of Horror (Winchester: Zero Books, 2014); and The Memory of Place: a Phenomenology of the Uncanny (Athens: Ohio University Press, 2012).
