Ian Strange "Landed" Installation @ The Art Gallery of South Australia

As a part of the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Aussie artist Ian Strange has opened his latest installation outside the Art Gallery of South Australia. Dubbed “Landed,” the architectural installation features a matte black structural recreation of the Strange’s own 1920s suburban-style home – positioned in the gallery’s forecourt as if it dropped right out of the sky. Seemingly sinking into the ground beneath it, the isolated “Landed” juxtaposes the neo-classical composition of the museum itself – as well as its urban surroundings – and playfully evokes The Wizard of Oz and an interruption of Western cultural motifs. Ian Strange’s “Landed” is on display through May 11 along with the entirety of the museum’s celebratory biennial exhibition.
