IAN STRANGE - ISLAND -  Jul 22, 2017 - Sep 16, 2017

Fremantle Arts Centre presents the world premiere of internationally acclaimed artist Ian Strange’s latest exhibition ISLAND. Born and bred in the Perth suburbs, Strange is known for his subversive, site-specific interventions on suburban houses. Based in New York since 2009, Strange returns home to debut his most in-depth exploration of home. Created in the wake of the American housing crisis, ISLAND offers a provocative and unsettling look at our deep psychological relationship to home.

Strange’s fascination with home has been a focus of his practice for many years. Working with the foreclosed houses of America, historic buildings in an economically stagnant Poland and Christchurch’s earthquake ravaged homes – Strange explores home as a universal ideal. His darkly surreal installations have seen the artist encase buildings in wallpaper, black out entire houses with paint and install a crashlanded home outside the Art Gallery of South Australia.

BILL HENSON - Sep 16, 2017 - Dec 11, 2017

Each of the works included has a palpable sense of the cinematic and together they form an enigmatic imaginative statement. Like much of his work, there is little that is explicit, and rather the works propose open-ended narratives and capture a transitory sensation. 

A powerful sense of mystery and ambiguity can be found within the images, heightened by the deep blackness of the shadows and the striking use of chiaroscuro to selectively obscure and reveal the form of the nudes, sculptures and the landscape itself.

Bill Henson is a National Gallery of Victoria touring exhibition.
