An amazing video was released today from our buddy Ian ‘Kid Zoom’ Strange and his installation titled Home which appeared last year as a part of the Cockatoo Island project. The piece was a remake of his childhood home. The man has come a long way since his Perth days but it seems him home still has a grip on him thematically. The film is truly impressive in both its production values and haunting cinematics. Great to see this guys go world class in yet another genre: video.
In October 2011, after three years living in New York, artist Ian Strange (Kid Zoom) returned to Australia to create a major new installation work housed in Cockatoo Island’s prestigious Turbine Hall. The exhibition featured a full-scale reproduction of his childhood home and a film documenting the violent destruction of three Holden commodores. This video documents what resulted.
Home was a site specific installation exhibited at Cockatoo Island’s, Turbine Hall in Sydney, Australia and was on display from November 4th – December 11th 2011.
