Flux Factory finally defeats nature in their newest show…

Our story begins with Troy Hurtubise who was attacked by a grizzly bear in the Canadian Rockies. Troy survived and decided that he would one day return to the Rockies, this time fully prepared to win. Cut to director Peter Lynch, who created a documentary called Project Grizzly about Troy and his quest to create a grizzly-proof suit. It is one man’s obsession to defeat nature. In the film, Troy has his friends “test” his suit in various violent ways (ramming trucks, flying logs, etc.) and then heads to the heart of Grizzly country for an adventure that ends, unceremoniously, in failure.

Participating artists: Kristoffer Ardena, Dominique Blais, Paul Burn, Johannes DeYoung, Lisa Dillin, Chris Hackett & Eleanor Lovinsky, Troy Hurtubise, Aya Kakeda, Katerina LanFranco, Fabienne Lasserre, Marie Losier & Sebastien Santamaria, Peter Lynch, Ian Montgomery, Motomichi Nakamura, Frank Olive & Rudy Shepherd, Douglas Paulson, Bruno Persat, Hideki Takahashi, Hiroshi Shafer, Shawn Spencer.
