How to Raise a Ghost

Created during a time of the worldwide pandemic and escalating climate crisis, Melissa Proposch’s imagined haunted memories, dreams and associations come together in a series of works and exploration of the fear of the unknown and unseen threat. A conceptual map of the artist’s haunted house and place where her personal ghosts dwell, here Proposch crafts an offering—an invitation to come and convene with her in a form of parallel play. This exhibition constitutes the visual outcomes emerging from a practice-led Masters research project at the School of Arts, Federation University, Australia.

Melissa Proposch is supported by an Australian Research Training Program (RTP) Fee Offset Scholarship through Federation University.
