Fairfield Shipyard

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.
