Glenn Walls – SUPER CREATIVE GRID

Super – Nothing for Me

Posted in Super - Nothing for Me by Super on February 13, 2021

Nothing for Me centres on redefining the masculine/heterosexual dominance of modernist and not so modernist structures and spaces and present and realigns it with a sexual minority and citizens who would never have access to these forms of architecture. By utilizing the language of modernism that created clean, clinical spaces, free of interpretation, this photographic series counteract the seemingly accepted view of modernist design and continues my interest in how society continues to humanise modernist/minimalist theory and practice to reflect an interpretation of the individual relating to identity and sexuality. 

The photographic works consist of images of my father in front of his house. These images were taken over various years starting in 2011 and is an ongoing project. Each image is juxtaposed with an image of famous modernist houses.
