Brendon Gravell’s most recent body of work “Periphery” is a meditation on ideas about the contemporary edgeland spaces of South Manchester, UK. It encompasses a dichotomy between nature and culture, and as humans, considers our emotional relationship to these spaces. W.J.T Mitchell’s idea of using the word ‘Landscape’ as a verb, ‘to landscape’, is to intervene with the land, to be and move within it. This series embodies Mitchell’s idea as Brendon pursues places in which nature and culture collide by looking at non-places.
