‘SUBURBAN’ is a multifaceted photography, film, and installation based exhibition. Between 2011 and 2013 Strange worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York, and New Hampshire to create, photograph, and film seven site specific interventions that incorporate suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through film and photographic documentation forms the basis of this new collection of work.
‘SUBURBAN’ premiered in a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia from July to September, 2013. The exhibition consisted of eleven final photographic works, three ‘house deconstruction’ works, and 3-channel film. It was subsequently shown as a solo exhibition with New York arts organisation Standard Practice in June, 2016.
