A Candystripers Project: Bus Gallery
The Candystripers: Lauren Brown and Gemma Jones
June 9 – 26, 2009
The Candystripers is a collaboration between two Melbourne artists: pop-artist Gemma Jones and installation artist Lauren Brown. Their latest project is in the entrance to Bus Gallery, an artist-run-space in the heart of Melbourne, and is the third in a series of projects based in Melbourne.
Seeking to create hyper-real spaces that walk the line between exterior and interior experiences, The Candystripers project at Bus transforms the foyer into a cross between Victorian wallpaper, an oversized minimalist painting and a helicopter landing pad.
Where: Bus Gallery, Melbourne
When: 9 June – 26 June
Opening: Tuesday 9 June, 6 – 8pm
