Bockhaus Halloween Haunted Haus Opening Party
October 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 11:30 pm$20 – $44
BROOKLYN, NY September 12th, 2022 — UNRULY Collective, LLC (UNRULY) and Harlem River Yacht Club (HRYC) are excited to present Bock Haus Haunted Haus, an art experience by trailblazing artist Ryan Bock. Opening at UNRULY Collective (200 Cooper Street) on October 15th running through October 31, 2022.
Bock’s intention is to create a Haunted Haus experience subtly questioning bodily autonomy in the United States of America utilizing the ancient craft of puppetry. In collaboration, we will combine found objects, unused materials, and the love of creativity to bring a community event to Bushwick celebrating the Halloween season. The experience will include an outdoor mural and interactive puppetry. This will be a complete venue take-over. Two floors of sensory exposure will scare attendees.
You will be able to see, hear, touch, and even taste Bock’s art as it takes you through the nightmares being faced by Americans today. This Haunted Haus will be based in fear but end in wonderment.

HARLEM RIVER YACHT CLUB: Harlem River Yacht Club is founded on the principle of providing the opportunity for diverse connections and networking geared toward African Americans and other usually marginalized groups that have recently financially liberated themselves.

We create free spaces of education for youth by empowering our members to lead by example, inspiring a strong legacy program.

Our events are inviting and inspiring, open to all walks of life to indulge in the creation and consumption of art with no judgment or restrictions. UNRULY strives to continuously create opportunities for artists and patrons to thrive, develop, and explore creativity through community and collaboration.
RYAN BOCK: Ryan Bock specializes in painting, drawing, puppetry, animation and experimental film methods.
Bock’s practice is rooted in a need for narrative structure. Residing somewhere between mythology and nightmare, Bock depicts mise-en-scène riddled with symbology and allusions both cinematic and painterly. Maintaining a fascination for shape, shade, shadow, structure and optical illusion, Bock deconstructs his subject matter into often barely-recognizable delineations and structurally unsound repetitive patterns. In an attempt to confront the contemporary individual’s relationship to mortality, fear and superstition, Bock depicts correlations between the human figure and its innovations: technology, architecture and religion—both historically and fictitiously. By consistently contrasting historical subjects with those of the present, and using the recurring patterns found to generate predictions about our future—a process he refers to as ‘dusty futurism’—Bock propels his audience to reconsider the routine human experience and discloses the illusions implemented to keep them from questioning.
