Pop Up: Project is the inaugural event of Melbourne based art collective Popup at BUS Projects. Comprising of local and international emerging artists, Popup is a platform for experimentation and dialogue through spontaneous collaboration. The artists perpetually inhabit the spaces between mediums, performance and exhibition, creating makeshift spaces for their explorations of the often overlooked.

The works presented for Pop Up: Project explore the psychological and physical aspects of projection. A video can be projected on a wall, a concept can be projected through live performance, a viewer can project upon a painting.

In response to the unique site of BUS Projects, the exhibition will not use conventional lighting. Works will incorporate their own source of light or use light generated from other works. Light spill from Julia Zuleger’s video installation ‘Ways of Remembering’ will illuminate Aliça Bryson­-Hayne’s painting installations. ‘Exist’ by Elizabeth Sampson will glow in the style of an exit sign – often an unwanted light source within a gallery context.

The exhibition is both individual and collaborative; a showcase of its founding members art practices. Performance, sculpture and installations will interact with each other, connected through light. The participating artists will present: video and light installations by Claire Robertson, Julia Zuleger, Shae Rooke and Elizabeth Sampson; painting installation by Aliça Bryson­-Haynes; and live and recorded performances by Nicholas Chilvers.
