It looks like we're in for a treat next week, homie Ian Strange (AKA Kid Zoom for those of you who look at graffiti) has brought his epic Suburban project to Melbourne. I recommend checking this one out if you're in town, I've attached the preview video below so you can see the scale of the project. It is by no understatement a huge effort and worth braving the winter weather to lay your eyes on. More details below the video.
"Ian Strange: Suburban is a multifaceted photography, film, installation exhibition and film project created by New York-based Australian artist Ian Strange. Since 2011 Strange worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire to create, photograph and film seven site specific interventions incorporating suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through film and photographic documentation forms the basis of this new body of work."
