The works of eight artists come together to imagine a nonpartisan post-apocalyptic perspective, or in part, the impacts of a post-human bunker. Inside the space is a preserved archive, organic and fabricated, after escaping the whatever whichever and actively evolving and adjusting to the environment. Plants mutate and prosper, transcending subservient roles as food and decor. Furniture objects, appliances, architecture and fixtures develop desire and ignore their convenient purposes. The room itself is living and dying, blissfully unaware of how it got there and what it might be expected to do.

The show finds its footing in the differences between Science Fiction and Fantasy; projections of the future vs. make believe from another reality. Feeling of Dread is a flexible approach to the science fiction reality of an object in a room, the fantasy of an idea that can prove anything, and the opportunity to understand these works as both genres.

Featuring works by Ida Badal, Jesse Chapman, Nathan Ellefson, Rochelle Goldberg, Alina Tenser, Eric Veit, and Andrew Norman Wilson.
