Landed: A Spectacular Installation Featuring a Suburban Home Fallen from the Sky

Positioned on the forecourt of the Art Gallery of South Australia, "LANDED" is a sculptural work by Australian artist Ian Strange (previously), commissioned for the 2014 Biennial of Australian Art. The site-specific installation is an architectural replica of the artist’s childhood suburban home in Perth. However, rather than being located on a polite suburban street, the house appears to have fallen from the sky. In the words of catalogue author Ashley Crawford: “…the suburbs are full of houses that are meant to be homes. But all too often, hidden behind these neat fa├žades, there is a void; a world of soulless boredom at best, a hive of domestic violence – both psychological and physical – at worst."
