Created for The Greater Cities Commission and Technology Park for Sydney World Pride 2023.
Love Pop is an inflatable art installation by queer artist Matthew Aberline with the Beautiful and Useful Studio. This immersive work borrows from pop artists like Andy Warhol and creates a small universe of imaginary queer products that celebrate diversity, inclusion and love.
Each piece has a series of actions for the viewer to act out, developed with writer Catherine Moore, to help each viewer imagine new ways they can spread the message of love and acceptance.
“We wanted to create something ridiculously fun and gorgeous, a riot of magic-texta and emojis - but with a warm hearted look at how love works in our society."
