Fablevision’s sister organisation, social enterprise Fablevision Studios, was recently at Govan’s Graving Docks to photograph and video Iwona Zajac’s installation, “Look!”, which was designed in collaboration with Eugenia Tynna and Fairfield Govan for the Covid19-hit Memory of Water EU project. The strictures on movement imposed by Covid19 has meant that artists, Hamish Rhodes, Beatrice Searle and Ines Cavaco, had to stand in for Iwona Zajac to bring this particular element to fruition.
Fablevision is among seven cultural organisations from seven European cities working together on the Memory of Water project: Batumi, Gdansk, Gothenburg, Govan, Levadia, Limerick and Ostend.
“Look!” encourages us to explore the meaning of place and belonging in cultural heritage. “Born in Govan” and “Made in Shipyards” pays tribute to the largely voiceless people and communities who played such an important role in making the Clyde a byword for excellence in marine engineering. “Clydebuilt” wasn’t just a marketing slogan, it was a leitmotif for quality.
