Crystal Cavern - Closing

The Closing for Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels' Crystal Cavern is held on Wednesday November 28 during MVT 2.

Field recordings made by Vnesswolfchild in and around the Clocktower have been sculpted into three dimensional structures and trajectories by Caulkins, reflecting the geometric structures of Fels' crystals. Visitors are invited to come bathe in this sonic sculpture installed inside the Cavern.

The night also features Thanksgiving Deux, Dinnervisuals, a totally edible sculpture/video installation by Thu Tran and Christopher Duffy, which was developed over the duration of Tran’s residency at the Clocktower. The very same night Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels' Crystal Cavern will celebrate its closing while Babycastles offer a preview of their Babyharvester installation in collaboration with Slice Harvester.

The event takes place at the Clocktower Gallery in Tribeca on November 28th from 6pm to 9pm. RSVP is required to events@artonair.org

Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels, Crystal Cavern

Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels (b. 1982, Tennessee) is an Australian-American artist based in Brooklyn. She creates large-scale installations inspired by fantastical blueprint drawings that abstract and compress representations of family systems. Utilizing geometry in ways akin to Sierpinski fractals or crystal structures, where larger wholes are made from smaller repeating components, Serra uses triangles as a process of mapping the thousands of genealogical connections that make up our beings. The installations born from these maps are made from discarded housing materials—predominately lath wood found behind old plaster walls—to make environmental outgrowths in the nooks and crannies of existing architecture. Her work has been shown at Pioneer Works, The Clocktower Gallery, Scope, and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris; and with her collective Rabid Hands in a former convent, a crumbling machine warehouse, and an abandoned secret society hall.
