The Hollows is excited to present Electrique, a 50-piece group exhibition installed in 16 galleries throughout 5 floors, the front and back facades and the backyard of new The Hollows townhouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Bedford Ave, between N8th and N9th streets, with a 5-day long opening reception that will take place at dark, from 9-11pm. The exhibition will be on view through Aug 28, on Saturday/Sunday from 2-8pm and 9-11pm.

Electrique, includes light, mechanical and sound works, all of which come alive with electricity. Works include Portal by Randy Polumbo, a telephone booth in which phallus shaped molten glass lights are nested in floral arrangement, Scrape, an encompassing site-responsive light and tulle installation by Christine Sciulli, and Cathy McClure’s Bots series, Composed of the twitching mechanical guts of discarded plush toys, creepy, tragic, yet morbidly comical exploration of the casualties of planned obsolesce and over-production, partly covered with gold leaf.
