Friday night was opening night of Kid Zoom’s “Suburban” exhibition at Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria. The night consisted of a selection of photographs and films taken from his time spent creating 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!
