Chris Bond, Marcin Wojcik MethodOpening: Tuesday 17 July, 6-8pm Dates: 17 July-4 August 2012
For the 2012 Melbourne Art Fair BUS Projects will present a new body of work by Marcin Wojcik. The last time that Bus Projects graced the halls of the Royal Exhibition Building was in 2004 when the then-directors presented work by Chris Bond. As a way of marking these two points in BUS’s history we have brought the two artists together for an exhibition running alongside the Art Fair in Gallery One at Donkey Wheel House.
Both Wojcik and Bond use fiction as a strategy for making work. Wojcik physically inhabits various training personas, developing props for these characters, whilst Bond creates elaborate fictional narratives as the basis for his art objects.
For ‘Method’, Chris Bond and Marcin Wojcik have selected works from each other’s back catalogue in a miniature retrospective teasing out some of the nexuses in their practices and highlighting BUS Projects’ interests in contemporary spatial practice.
