the Hatchery: Fortress

The Hatchery: Fortress explores the idea of fortress in a variety of non-literal, non-representational ways. The exhibition includes work dealing with social issues such as housing and homelessness, immigration policy, marginalization, climate change and drought, as well as law enforcement and budgeting policies. Other works take a subjective and internal spin on the topic, such as the bolstering effects of commercial products on personal image; the walls of blithe misunderstandings which pile up around attempts at sincerity; a personal exploration of the natural world in retreat. We also included works that connect to the local environment and history, such as a personal take on local heroes/villains and presumed train robbers whose hideout and last stand was located in Badger.
