Feeling Safer was a curatorial research project that explored how contemporary artists are imagining post-human, futurological speculations as core to their practice. It took the form of a series of exhibitions and associated activities (talks, workshops and performances). Jackson acted as overall project director of Feeling Safer, and curator of 4 of the 5 exhibitions comprising project activities.
From zombie fiction, conspiracy politics and climate change, contemporary artists are incorporating narratives of apocalypse into their methodologies and practices. Feeling Safer responded to this tendency, working with artists to realise works that revealed links between these narratives, art-making and broader forms of exhibition practice.
