To celebrate the release of his book Disturbed Home (Damiani/Thames & Hudson Australia 2022), join artist Ian Strange in a live, in-store discussion with architect and educator Rory Hyde at Bookshop by Uro.

Disturbed Home is the first comprehensive survey of Strange's architectural interventions, including photographic and filmic interpretations of those structural works. Highlighting projects of the past 12 years and spanning geographies from Strange’s native Australia, to New Zealand, Japan, Poland, and the United States, Strange’s provocative transformations of damaged or abandoned homes unlock themes of social upheaval and geographic displacement caused by a variety of factors—economic blight, environmental disaster, and social migrations. Published in partnership with FotoFocus, and on the occasion of the FotoFocus Biennial in Cincinnati, USA, Disturbed Home includes scholarly essays by FotoFocus artistic director and curator Kevin Moore and Britt Salvesen, curator, and head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department and the Prints and Drawings Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

Ian Strange is an Australian-born, US-based, multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores architecture, space, and the home. His practice includes multifaceted collaborative community-based projects, architectural interventions, and exhibitions resulting in photography, sculpture, installation, site-specific works, film, and documentary.

Rory Hyde is Associate Professor in Architecture, Curatorial Design and Practice at the University of Melbourne.
