When I was living south of the river last year, this uncompromising brick wall is something I used to drive past whenever I was heading into the markets or the city. For whatever reason I found its austerity to be amusing; the unadorned facade, with no windows, doors, and (up until recently) not even any graffiti seemed surreal and in some ways signifying of the unglamorous landscape of this suburb. Perhaps its the influence of my friend Drew Woolley, whose own compositional work at the time included postcard pieces dedicated to the mundane urban clutter of Perth’s eastern suburbs, that made this weird southern monument stand out to me so much. Since noticing the wall I’ve been lucky enough to visit the Hamburger Bahnhof exhibition of Joseph Beuys in Berlin and walk through the 20 tons of tallow fat that constitute ‘Unschlitt’, a series of sculptures cast from the useless corner of a pedestrian underpass - ‘a testament to empty space slowly being wasted', as Alena Sokhan describes it. My homage to the wall is my way of trying to look at a similar idea, passing through a more personal veil of memories of people and place that I associate with the area now.
