Nighttime at The Hollows Dance series: INCREMENTATIONS NOV 4, 2016 - MAY 26, 2017

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.

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 

Dylan Trigg

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).
