Winter Street Gallery presents Buncha Hells, a site-responsive installation by New York-based artist Gregory Kalliche. Featuring a single-channel video accompanied by a synchronized lighting program, Kalliche animates the histories, symbols, and effects of electricity. CGI-animated depictions of Nikola Tesla’s Egg of Columbus, slithering eels, and dancing northern lights are a few of the various representations that the artist brings to life within the electrifying world of Buncha Hells. Through this uncanny imagery, he reminds us of the omnipresence of electricity. Articulating electricity’s literal role within the mechanics of his installation, Kalliche taps into and expands the gallery’s own electrical system, leveraging a network of conduits alongside a sophisticated lighting scheme.
The exhibition is accompanied by a text by Elizaveta Shneyderman, which follows below.
