About:
First I was Afraid, I was Petrified… is an immersive exhibition taking place in the basement of Treasure Town, a catacomb-like art space in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The show weaves together the work of artists using a wide variety of media through an underlying theme of dreams, darkness and the unconscious. Each room in the basement will be dedicated to one artist’s work, creating their own distinct environment and atmosphere. At 8:30 pm, the audience will be guided through a series of performances that travels through the entirety of the basement.

Artists Carlo D'Anselmi, Tirzah Brott, Frances Chang, Rosie Lopeman, Mike Naideau, and Ken Weathersby will each be occupying a space in the basement, creating their own distinct environment and atmosphere. The labyrinthine connectivity between installations creates an enunciated yet unbroken trail of scenes, each exploring a unique stage of the emotional process of delving into the unknown parts of the self. First there is fear, then there is discovery. First there is nothing, then there is something. The meandering, snakelike exploration through this subterranean domain mimics the journey through the room-like bounds of the human psyche. Performers Cornelia Barber, Hannah Mitchell, Theo Koppel, Matt Bachmann, Sophia Treanor and Plutoness (Frances Chang) will be performing their pieces in a guided tour of the space on December 8th, and a similar event will happen at the closing on January 8th.

The interdisciplinary nature of the exhibition is a further attempt to dissolve boundaries, both internally and externally between categorical and medium-based conceptions of art and expression. Together we are attempting to begin the odyssey of articulating the inarticulable, to give form to and prioritize the personal, inner, immaterial sources of intuition and self-discovery.
