Ian Strange Collaborates with Trevor Powers on 'Dalison'

Watch the trailer for the upcoming film and photographic exhibition.

Ian Strange recently presented the second installment of his luminous LIGHT INTERSECTIONS series in a terrace house in the suburb of Surrey Hills. To follow, the acclaimed Australian artist is working with musician and producer Trevor Powers (formerly Youth Lagoon) on a new film and photo series, titled Dalison.

Named after 20 Dalison Avenue in Western Australia, Strange created a euphoric light installation over a three-day period that is complemented by a poetic 18-minute composition by Powers. Access and Displacement have long been a study for Strange who continues this investigation through a “hold-out” or “nail house” transformed for a bold architectural intervention and exploration of home, with the use of a stadium-sized LED screen.

Located in Wattleup, a once-thriving suburban area between Perth’s Indian Ocean and major freeway, the town now sits eerily abandoned as the site of an industrial project called Latitude 32, first instigated in 1996, which has resulted in more than 300 homes surrounding 20 Dalison demolished, leaving many families uprooted and others, who remain scattered around the area in defiance, uncertain about their future.

“In my work, I’m interested in universal and shared connections to the image of the home. These are places we tend to project with a sense of stability, but are often more vulnerable and temporal than we would like to think. This is especially true in the experience of hold-out homeowners like those of 20 Dalison,” said Strange in a statement.

Dalison will be shown in a series of upcoming screenings and exhibitions across the world. For more information, please visit the project’s accompanying website.
