Todd Fuller at Dark MOFO
- Neither Here Nor There, 2016
15 to 19 June
As a part of the Museum of Old and New Art's 'Dark MOFO' midwinter festival, Constance ARI presents 'Neither Here Nor There'. Taking place within the tunnels beneath Railway Roundabout (aka. Fountain Roundabout) in Hobart, this free display of creativity utilises the depth and darkness of this space.
Todd Fuller's newest hand-drawn film 'pink eclipse' was created in collaboration with Karin Chan. It animates the courtship between dog and moon. This unlikely love story was selected to be a part of MOFO's underground experience.

- Drawn in Fairfield, 2016
21 May to 6 August
I see the housing in these suburbs as full of connection and disconnection, sameness and difference; the structures I draw become signifiers of human existence, as well as memories, dreams and shared experiences. While my drawings may appear to be an attempt to make an objective representation of dwellings from Western Sydney housing, for me there is a deeper personal connection, which drives me to spend endless hours in the studio in an attempt to elevate these dwellings from the chaos of their surroundings, highlighting the abstract geometric qualities of the architecture, which I find so compelling.
Through my drawings I aim to extract both the sense of humanity that comes with the fact that people live in these buildings and the more formal aesthetics of these places. I employ realism as a catalyst to ignite the imagination of the viewer and invite them to look beyond the mundane and banal. To revisit these spaces imaginatively and find the aesthetic poetry embedded within the suburban landscape, while at the same time disrupting cultural prejudices which prevent people from seeing the underlying elegance of these simple buildings.
With this in mind The Drawn in Fairfield exhibition has focused my attention on the housing within the Fairfield LGA and for the first time has given me the opportunity to include interviews with the people who currently reside in these homes. The interviews were conducted with the help of Naomi McCarthy who invited the resident to share their experiences and memories of the house they live in. Some histories go back many years and others reflected on a shorter history, but all had their own unique story to tell about their time in their Fairfield homes.
- Resonance, 2016
14 May to 9 June
Physically, the tactile sensation of shaping the twisting curvatures is part of my attachment to the process and the resulting forms. Conceptually and spiritually, I had a sense that on some level our actions and reactions are not that different from a trajectory circling around attractive and repulsive forces; a fluid, sensitive, non-confrontational response to the world and our internal contradictions.
The exhibition will feature some new works in copper and stainless steel.
