Pop-Up 265 will present a site-specific installation by Jesse Potts, “Sight Un-Seeing.” A public opening and reception is scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. Friday, June 16, at 265 Water St., Augusta.

The exhibition will be on display through July 5.

A multidisciplinary artist, Potts’ work is a hybrid of experimental sculptural processes and time-based mixed-media installation.

“Sight Un-seeing” is a site-specific installation that explores of the purpose, structure and emotional significance of the “home.” The exhibit is a combination of the word “sightseeing” (the action of visiting a place of interest) and the phrase “sight un-seen” (the action of buying something without first inspecting it).

This title is intended to cause friction in the underlying content of the work by raising questions: Is a “home” a place or an object? Is it precious or pragmatic? Is it a psychological space or a set of coordinates? Is it steadfast or fleeting?
