As part of the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2010 five artists took over the Fairfield shipyard offices in Govan for an exhibition of video, performance and site-specific installation works. Working together they created artworks that responded to the history and fabric of the building including large scale paintings, projections, sound installations, amplified drawings, an avant-garde brass band and cucumber sandwiches and tea in the boardroom to finish.
The exhibiting artists were: Colin Begg, Sarah Kenchington, Emma Bowen, Belinda Gilbert Scott and Mark Vernon.
The audio clip is an excerpt from ‘The Engine Room’ by Mark Vernon, a four-channel sound installation created from original field recordings presented in a blacked out space.
Fairfield Shipyard, Govan, Glasgow, 24th April – 2nd May, 2010.
