“Whether or not the Hatchery seeks to become a model for the field, there is every potential for it to do so in generous, insightful and expansive ways. The simple act of reflection—of conducting a live (life!) experiment to see what revising a model of work looks like and how it can and can’t be done—possesses a profound resonance for the shape of the artist/presenter relationships, and the questions the project poses ruffles other modes of art work as well. There will never be a perfect way of working, or any one way to imagine and shape a collaboration, but the opportunity to embrace its particular chaos, the electrifying confusion of creation, is sometimes foundation enough.”
