Artist Survival Shack by @AdamStennett1

In recent years, I’ve been trying to have a better relationship with nature. Instead of vacationing in a big city, or somewhere exotic, I’ve chosen rural northern Michigan with it’s endless trees, trout streams and the occasional rifle and shotgun blast. To me, waking up amongst pine trees and simply doing nothing more than thinking and being… it’s so much more refreshing than dining out and going shopping. The thought of making art, while in remote locations had never occurred to me until I chanced upon Adam Stennett‘s Artist Survival Shack.

Conceptually it reminds me of a burning man art project, something that puts the artist through extremes in order to produce something beautiful. I’m really looking forward to seeing what comes out of Adam’s experience.


From the press release:

Adam Stennett – Artist Survival Shack: One Month Installation / Endurance Performance, August 1 – 31, 2013. In cooperation with Jess Frost of Glenn Horowitz, East Hampton, NY 

August 1, 2013, Adam Stennett will begin a month-long installation / endurance performance living and working in a 6.5 x 9.5 foot, off the grid artist survival shack at an undisclosed location on the east end of Long Island. The supplies, food and water he arrives with will be the only supplies he has access to and he will not leave the area for the duration of the performance (one month). The focus of his stay will be to survive physically and spiritually and to create a body of work. The off-site performance will be followed by an exhibition featuring the shack itself, related paintings and artifacts opening September 7, 2013 at Glenn Horowitz in East Hampton, NY.
