We love the Glue Society and their soft spoken/big stick approach to site specific sculptures. They have a way of altering our field of vision just enough for a violent double take, leaving you wondering about motives. 300 Tonnes features an excavator buried by its own mechanical clawed hand, under 300 tons of sand. Was it a self-inflicted suicide or a cruel prank by another of it’s kind? It premieres at the Australian sculpture festival, Sculpture by the Sea, where the Glue Society’s iconic melted ice cream truck Hot with the Chance of a late Storm was born a few years back.
