FINAL ACT is a new a film, photography and installation based project by visual artist Ian Strange.
In November 2013, Ian Strange in collaboration with cinematographer Alun 'Albol' Bollinger [Lord of the Rings, Heavenly Creatures, The Frighteners] created three new film and photography based artworks incorporating four suburban homes in Christchurch, New Zealand. These homes were located in Christchurch’s residential “Red Zone”, an area containing over 16,000 houses slated for demolition after the devastating 2011 earthquake. FINAL ACT is in part an emotive archive of these Christchurch homes and a continuation of the artist's ongoing exploration of the social and emotional icon of the home.

Ian Strange: FINAL ACT is presented as a solo exhibition at the Canterbury Museum, Christchurch from December 18th - March 23rd, 2014 by RISE Festival, OiYou and the Canterbury Museum.
