Join Paris-based artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann for a performative and interpretive tour of the Gunning House, also known as Glenbrow, a 1940 Usonian-style home east of Columbus designed by the architects Tony Smith (a renowned sculptor), Theodore van Fossen (known for Rush Creek Village in Worthington, Ohio), and Laurence Cuneo (who became art director for the TV show I Love Lucy). Located on a 2.5-acre parcel, the house appeared on several endangered lists, including The Cultural Landscape Foundation and Columbus Landmarks. In 2014, Dorri Steinhoff and Joseph Kuspan purchased it. Their restoration took more than 3.5 years and received a State of Ohio Preservation Award in 2018.
Through photographs, sculptural installations, and interventions of architectural spaces, Badaut Haussmann maps out the unconscious undercurrents of design in the human condition. She “translates” the Gunning House into a site where multiple voices and histories can pass through, contest, coalesce, and break away.
