Ian Strange - Suburbia

IAN STRANGE | KID ZOOM SUBURBAN

Friday night was opening night of Kid Zoom’sSuburban” exhibition at Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria. The night consisted of a selection of photographs and films taken from his time spent creatingΒ painting and burning homes throughout Ohio, Detroit, Alabama and New Jersey. Ian worked with a team of people, fire departments, neighbourhood groups, and film crews to pull off this mammoth project.

From what I saw, it was well worth it!

If you get the time, head over to Federation square and see for yourself. Amazing photographs of the houses, actual pieces cut out from the homes and shipped back, as well as eery video footage put together in an almost mesmerising way. I didn’t want to take my eyes off the flames!

  1. Strange stuff! Thank you for reminding me of this exhibition. Some of Strange’s work reminds me of Matta-Clarke who cut up neglected houses in the name of art. Nice blog.
