The 2014 Biennial of Australian Art ended this past Sunday and some spectacular images of the site specific installations have been creeping online. New York based artist, Ian Stranges’ ‘LANDED’ was commissioned for the Biennial and made a huge scene seemingly crash landing right in front of the Art Gallery of South Australia. The foreboding matte black house surrounded by rubble looks like missing scene from ‘The Wizard of OZ’ – only I’m pretty sure it would be the house of Dorothy’s nemesis.
