|Heath Franco (NSW) will present HOME TOWN (2014) and its sequel HOME TOWN TWO (2016) for the first time as a double bill presentation.|
Heath Franco’s 2014 work HOME TOWN presents his boyhood home of Berridale, NSW, as a place of surreal potential where time and space seem infinitely malleable. The video uses material gathered during a visit to the area after an absence of 15 years. The grand, sweeping nature of the landscape on the outskirts of town is redrawn in the guise of classic Western cinema and the characters inhabiting the landscape performed by the artist as a direct response to the field trip.
In HOME TOWN TWO, Heath Franco returns to Berridale to take care of unfinished business.
