distracted-reader #2 Michael Parr and Blaine Western. split/fountain.

A ridge, a section, an existing boundary, additions, a removed partition. A floor; concrete (where possible). 160 pages; includes 10 tipped-in colour plates. With essays by Michelle Menzies, Lance Pearce, and Henry Babbage.

Parr and Western segue a photographic essay on the ruinous state of Barton Gillespie’s modernist house in Westemere into photographs of mutely eloquent architectural and landscape fragments taken in Los Angeles and Mexico. Menzies’ essay reads the Barton Gillespie house as a figure of rapport between people, topography and climate. Pearce considers the itinerancy and conceptual mobility of Parr and Western’s practice. Babbage reflects on the different audiences that Parr and Western’s temporary, quasi-architectural spaces create, and the way the spaces operate as platforms for occupancy and performance.
