Video Interview: Accidental Bear Gets Intimate with Inbred Hybrid Collective

If I were to start giving out prizes for artists with the most amazing names, Inbred Hybrid Collective would be wearing the red ribbon. It reels me in like a floundering fish at sea and I want a taste. Art as a concept and a social experiment, I like. Art should be stuffed with emotion which reflects the world around us as long as it doesn’t end up being just a series of doughnut still lives (unless well done). Inbred Hybrid Collective ” is not committed to any one medium in the exploration of a concept.”

Accidental Bear’s Mike Enders asks about New York art rivalries, current art project, The Bernstein Bears, whether or not depression or mania enhances an artists art work and many more intrusive questions. Inbred Hybrid Collective has undeniable authentic artist sensibility and is a damn hunk to boot. Gallery walls are flooded with “art” but a small percentage gets me up out of my plush lazy boy to see in person. All my senses are tickled while investigating Inbred Hybrid Collective. I would take planes, trains and a crazy crack head taxi rides to get glance at I.H.C’s work and marinate in the soothing energy that surrounds this artist.

 Inbred Hybrid Collective was established in 2005. Our mandate is to stimulate a consciousness of the external factors affecting our human existence. The type of interventions associated with Inbred Hybrid Collective, achieved as artistic concept, constitute a provocation for the public to reflect upon the influence that this immersion has had upon them. Our work has appeared in venues as diverse as the Liverpool Independents Biennial (visual installation),Queens Museum of Art (sound art), Deitch Projects (film), Bereznitsky Gallery, Berlin (conceptual), World of Wonder Gallery, Hollywood (video installation) and the Ontario Crafts Council (visual installation). Uncredited appearances include the cover (and throughout) Slava Mogutin‘s NYC Gogo due to visual installations we did through Slurp, set design for the IFC Halloween spot on the Voluptuous Horror Of Karen Black, who we also assisted at the Whitney Biennial, and an acting role in Michelle Handleman’s “Dorian.” In 2009 we made history as the first sanctioned performance artist invited to perform at the Armory Art Fair, but we are not committed to any one medium in the exploration of a concept.

The first performance artist in Space-Make history

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

Combining the best soundbites from Science Fiction with choreography dictated by the specific experiences of a civilian space voyage, Inbred Hybrid Collective will boldly go where no artist has gone before. Using a lifetime of experiences tailored to this event, including classical ballet training, vocal and speech lessons, and countless hours immersed in the worlds of Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, HR Giger, Jules Verne (to name but a few), a zero gravity manned flight will become an expression of the finest pursuits of the human mind: creativity and experimentation. With the fruition of this dream, the final frontier will provide one small dance step for man, and one giant leap for artist-kind. It is the earnest hope of Inbred Hybrid Collective that the realization of this endeavor will inspire future generations of young artists to continue reaching for the stars in both a literal and a metaphorical sense, and to never stop turning the advantages afforded by science into an ever-expanding canvas of opportunity.

Project location: Queens, NY
