Heath Franco: Dream Home - Art Collector

Heath Franco, Dream Home (video still), 2012. Dual-Channel High Definition Digital Video, Colour, Stereo Sound, 16:9

In an earlier video work exhibited at Galerie pompom this year, Heath Franco introduced a cast of characters possessed of tics and fetishes that, like wind-up dolls, repeat mantra-like inanities. They inhabit a minimal, fictitious landscape featuring a found hand-built model house. Franco’s new dual-channel video, DREAM HOME, continues this body of work and delves deeper into the artist’s interest in ‘suburban terror’, manifested in the interaction of these characters. DREAM HOME also explores notions of dualities, alternate realities and the nature of the dream experience through the structural qualities of the work.
