Rabid Hands (Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels (1982), Andrew Shrock (1986), VnessWolfCHild (1982) and Ben Wolf (1983)) is an art collective that constructs massive-scale works of art throughout abandoned buildings. They organize artists and performers to overtake those spaces with installations of epic proportions that parasite onto the existing architecture and overlap with one another to disorient the geography of space and create a cacophony of experiences that force the audience into the present moment.
Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels
Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels is a Tennessean-Australian- American based in Brooklyn. From discarded housing materials, she makes large-scale construction installations that are submerging environments built into existing architecture with a sense of placelessness, awkward entrances, and inviting nooks. Her abstracts structures made of layers of other similar structures, explores how specific qualities of constructed environments create experiential constructs.
Andrew Schrock is a multi-faceted artist, ambitiously delving into all realms of creativity. His endeavors include tearing apart freight trains, tug boats, hacking fire hydrants, exploding sculptures, deconstructed and reconstructed, adventures into the metaphysical, and breathing, for the sake of realizing fantasy, experimental thinking, and an understanding of the multi-universe.
VnessWolfCHild is a musician and interactive ritual healing performance artist who uses installation, sound, video, and movement, to create performances uncovering, understanding and integrating subtle aspects of existence. Most recent works deal with the experience of the relationship between being in a physical, spiritual and emotional body while existing in the presence of urban industry and architecture. Through life and art Vness is on a mystical quest to absolve herself from suffering by riding the wondrous love joy train into the depths of the collective heart.
Ben Wolf’s sculptural practice is installation-driven, creating a specific space that gives life to material and shape, color and space. He uses various techniques from carpentry, welding, and casting, to general assembly of chaos, often times dragging in over-sized hordes from the depths of abandonment. His latest solo show was a site-specific installation at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn, an abstract realization of nature diminishing structure.
