ISLAND documents Ian Strange's interventions directly undertaken onto suburban homes in the USA as well as research and new work created in Ohio, Detroit and New York between 2015 and 2017.
Through photography, sculpture, research, found artefacts and drawings, ISLAND reflects on the home through the metaphor of the desert island, a place of personal sovereignty but simultaneously entrapment. ISLAND interplays the monumental with the intimate and intangible. Exploring the icon of the home as a deeply vulnerable object and personal vessel for memory, identity and aspiration.
ISLAND is a limited-edition publication produced in an edition of 400. The books are hand-signed and numbered by the artist. ISLAND includes research, sketches, artefacts and a concertina print in a custom designed box. The publication acts as a companion to Strange’s ISLAND body work created in the USA between 2015 and 2018.
