CURRENT EXHIBITION

SUNFIGO 'STENCILS'

Opening Friday 7th September, 6-9pm
Exhibition runs 7th-29th September

Blender Studios and Dark Horse Experiment presents 'Stencils' - the first ever gallery exhibition by the elusive Melbourne-based street artist SUNFIGO.

Known for their large-scale fence art installations, stencil pieces, and public art exhibitions utilising the streets as their gallery, the name SUNFIGO has become synonymous with pushing the boundaries of street art, often exploring unconventional materials and methods to communicate ideas about the human condition.

Opening Friday 7th September, the exhibition will feature new stencil works by SUNFIGO, with all proceeds from artwork sales being donated to Youth Projects – a Melbourne based, independent charity providing high impact support and pathways for young people experiencing disadvantage.

"TRAUMA/PRE-TRAUMA"
A solo show by Simon Crosby


Opening Night, Friday 5th October 6-9pm
Exhibitions runs Sat 6th Oct - Sat 27th Oct
Gallery Hours Weds-Sat, 12pm-5pm

Please join us for the opening night of Simon Crosby's solo exhibition 'Trauma/Pre-Trauma'.

"I see clothing as a metaphor for human actions and wool as a tactile and familiar medium that evokes memory. This is a biographical piece based on experiences at a Catholic boarding school and the consequences that follow. Abuse often exists behind the pretense of nurture. The exaggerated length of the sleeves point to growth impeded by the past, and to the present where the effects of trauma can never be fully exorcised. The raincoats point to the presence of the perpetrator as protector. I have attempted to play with notions of the unheimlich, as well as reflecting on Catholicism as an institution that is replete with images that aestheticize pain and suffering." - Simon Crosby
