Public Routes at Pump House Gallery

P5 Bus Route

FREE, no booking required.


Public routes, a project by artists Alex Parry and Sadie Edginton, invites gallery visitors, community groups, and local residents to consider the possibility of the bus as a site of action for the people of London.

Responding to Johann Arens’ exhibition Scenes of the World, which takes the local P5 bus as a starting point, a set of questions and provocations displayed in the gallery’s Project Space lead visitors on a journey. Drop in during gallery hours to play with sculptural and textual materials inspired by buses and travel, allowing us to individually and collectively imagine new narratives for the bus.

Through accumulating interpretations of bus journeys, the project considers our relationship with ‘public’ services and the spatial designs that influence what takes place on board them.

Drop in to the Project Space as we explore the temporary communities formed on public transport, that are constantly on the move.

As part of this project, Parry and Edginton will work with families at the ROSE Community Clubroom, in the Savona Estate, that sits on the P5 route. The project will culminate on the final day of the exhibition, with activities for all ages, with family workshops on Sunday 28 April, 12 and 19 May, 12 – 4pm.
