100° City

Through May 9
100° City
At 300 Jefferson St., Oakland, where City Limits once resided, an eerie black hole now sits behind the gallery’s glass door. The walls and floors are veiled in a thin grey fabric and natural light is blocked out from all possible openings. Inside, the bulbs from the light fixtures hang naked and low to the ground, near your knees, dangling by wires. Below them, soda cans made mobile by battery-powered attachable legs march around the room undirected. Each can holds a wilted flower, seeming to promise imminent death. In the middle of the room sits an empty metal trough, and nearby a sundial made of flesh-toned silicon rubber rests in a large bucket of water. Welcome to 100° City, an installation by artists Erin Jane Nelson, Jason Benson, and Joel Dean. The immersive art installation pairs objects that allude to dystopian tropes with outdated cultural artifacts (such as a quilt and a yellow turtleneck), placing them together in a post-apocalyptic landscape as a clever blend of science fiction and popular culture. The feeling of the space verges on retro-futurism, like coming across an abandoned website from the early Nineties “IRL.” It’s disorienting, unnerving, and definitely worth a visit.2 Free
