Australian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Ian Strange's work explores the loaded connection people have to homes. Strange pulls the innards out of bungalows and terraces, slicing perfectly realized negative spaces from sitting rooms and ceilings. Entire facades are painted in jarring blocks of color, or turned into monumental canvases.
His practice has gained increasing momentum in the art world, leading to archival and research projects as well as a string of solo exhibitions, including in New York and LA. In this new film for our Private View series, Strange talks about his practice as a form of ‘attack’, and unravels our perceptions of what the home is—and of what it is not.
Ian Strange will be opening a new exhibition—Island—on 18th December in New York.
