Artist Ian Strange, aka Kid Zoom’s latest installation art piece has dropped for the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. Literally, dropped.
In what could be the closest thing to the Wizard of Oz in Adelaide, Strange takes hostage of the forecourt of the Art Gallery of South Australia, creating a stunning site-specific piece of art which seems like he dropped a home out of the sky.
Looking as though it has fallen from a great height, the 1920’s suburban-style home appears embedded into the Earth, or as its name suggests, ‘landed’. FYI the rubble that surrounds the ‘crash site’ omits any evidence of witches crushed underneath. The Biennial says of Strange’s work
These are episodes of Neighbours directed by David Lynch and scripted by Stephen King with advice from Sigmund Freud
Landed follows his successful previous exhibition, Suburban: an exhibition of film, photography and installation based around seven site-specific works created with suburban houses along the east coast states of America.
