Ian Strange Disturbed Home is the first comprehensive survey of Ian Strange's architectural interventions, including photographic and filmic interpretations of those works. Highlighting projects from the past 12 years and spanning geographies from Strange's native Australia to New Zealand, Japan, Poland, and the US, Strange's provocative transformations of damaged or abandoned homes unlock themes of social upheaval and geographic displacement caused by economic blight, environmental disaster, and migration. Published on the occasion of exhibitions at the 2020 Perth Festival and the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial, Disturbed Home features lucid commentary and original documentation of numerous distinct projects. Also included are scholarly essays by FotoFocus artistic director and curator Kevin Moore and Britt Salvesen, curator and head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department and the Prints and Drawings Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Essays address Strange's practice within traditions of photography, film, public sculpture, installation, and dance.
