Pump House Gallery is delighted to present a new solo exhibition by Johann Arens. The gallery has been transformed with an installation originating from the interior of the P5, a local bus that traverses the neighbouring landscape of housing estates.

Sculptural renditions of the familiar interiors of buses – including elongated handrails and gaudy seating – convert the gallery into a similarly transitory public space to highlight the momentary synergies of a bus ride.

To debate the social interactions that take place on public transport, Arens invites community groups, all situated on the P5’s route, to the gallery in a series of one-day takeovers. The multiple events will address the cultural and infrastructural divides bridged by the bus.

This exhibition is brought to you by Wandsworth Council in partnership with Enable Leisure and Culture. Supported by Arts Council England and the Mondriaan Fund.
