Resort is the latest in a series of installations that investigates survivalist culture. Situated in the Lynden Sculpture Garden, nABr Gallery stands among other outdoor sculptures as a representation of traditional indoor spaces of presentation (four white walls). Hideous Beast has attached a series of ten-foot-high periscopes to this structure that can be used to survey the surrounding landscape and sculptures. This intervention inverts the traditional relationship of the viewer to the gallery space, allowing vision to extend beyond its walls. Other projects in this series have explored similar forms and methods of separating oneself from the world in order to gain a clearer picture of it. For survivalists, this act, rooted in fear, is a planned defense against future threats. Resort is an attempt to understand this culture of fear; to ask if art production and presentation could be embedded in the same conditions; and to investigate how the two cultural spheres might affect one another.
