Fablevision and sister social enterprise, Fablevision Studios, were in Govan on 15th October, 2020, to shoot video and photograph at the start of Memory of Water EU’s engagement and collaboration with Govan Stones Trust.
Limerick-based artist, Mary Conroy, operating within the constraints imposed by Covid19, sent over stencils depicting the Govan Stones for use on the Old Govan Walkway, the riverside ambulatory which runs from the site of the Govan ferry along the river behind Old Govan Church. The stencils are designed to mark the cultural heritage of Govan, in particular, the extraordinary legacy of the hogback tombstones which are some of the finest funereal relics in existence.
The photographs feature Bren MacNeil (who produced the photograph of the featured image), a volunteer with Govan Stones, and Ines Cavaco and Hamish Rhodes, who are engaged on the Memory of Water EU project with Fablevision and Fablevision Studios.
Glasgow Press will create letter press prints of her artwork to be gifted to Govan Stones and sold to help to fund the activities, as well as other merchandise. She has gifted six drawings to the Govan Stones Trust so that they can continue to carry on the collaboration.
