    'HOME' an exhibition by Ian 'Kid Zoom' Strange

    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:

    Of the work, Strange said:

    "Living away from Australia has meant that questions surrounding my own identity and a genuine sense of place have begun to filter through into my art. More broadly, I wanted to come home to create a work reflecting on my origins in the Australian suburbs I felt that I needed to escape when I was younger."
