TARGET : 2015 – 17

TARGET includes a series of site-based house intervention works, documented in photography, along with a collection of studio based artefacts, sketches, and drawings created in Australia, the United States, and Norway between 2015 and 2017.

TARGET began as a studio based work. Here, Strange created sketches and experiments based on found photographs of American homes, primarily in the Rust Belt of Ohio, which were often taken by real estate agents between the 1930s and 1960s as a means to sell and document suburban homes. The markings on the houses reference the motif of the target, as well as the crossing out of negatives within photographic practice. The site intervention and photographic works were created in Perth, Western Australia and Richmond Victoria between 2015 and 2017.

In 2017, Target was first exhibited at NuArt Festival in Norway as a city-wide billboard exhibition and as a publication of the same name.
