Cinematic in both tone and scale, SUBURBAN investigates the iconography surrounding the family home and its place in the current economic climate. The exhibition presents eight large-scale photographic works and a multi-channel, surround sound video installation. This work documents site-specific interventions directly incorporating suburban homes undertaken by Strange in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire. These involved painting onto suburban homes and in some cases, burning them to the ground. Strange then worked with his production team to meticulously document these interventions in film and photography.

So, there’s been a few small controversies blowing up on social networking sites this week (and it’s only Tuesday). If we can skip over celebrity facial reactions to Miley Cyrus twerking with her tongue out and the relatively insignificant matter of the US-funded chemical weapons in Syria, we arrive at the gravity of the situation that is Adrian Doyle’s ‘Empty-Nursery Blue’.
