Surreal Estate

Ursula Williams
Running time: 3 mins

An artist and his real-estate agent alter ego clash over the age old problem of art versus commerce.

Fixated on the destruction of inner city domestic architecture, renowned New Zealand artist John Radford is creating GRAFT®, a major sculptural installation comprising 256 highly detailed miniature replicas of early 1900’s suburban bay villas on two hillside precincts. Enter alter ego real estate agent Ron Jadford, spray tanned, dark tinted sunglasses, cell phone clamped to his ear, combed moustache. He’s selling the houses off the plan and he is not willing to take no for an answer.
