Our current group exhibition Sculpture 2016: Bronze features Todd Fuller’s first work in bronze. The work centres on his recurring potbellied, schadenfreude male figure – this time suspended from ‘balloons’ made from clusters of small, painted umbrellas. This is the first in a small series of sculptures on the same theme. On view until Thursday 18 February.

Insubstantial Love Stories
20 February to 17 March 2016
Premiering on Saturday 20 February, is Todd Fuller’s newest animation, ‘Unite project’, a participatory artwork surveying a range of responses to marriage equality. Fuller supplied members of the public with black + white stills from the film depicting two men engaged in a passionate kiss. The participants were encouraged to respond to the image by colouring in the figures with the resulting images complied into a hand drawn animation.
You can contribute to the ‘Unite Project’ in a colouring-in session for adults on Saturday 5 March, as part of Art Month Sydney. This film invites visitors to sit and respond to the work through drawing, colouring, writing or collage. To date, over 300 participants have completed their own frames which have been scanned and inserted into the ’Unite Project’ film. Add your voice to this unique project.
