The Covid19 crisis has had far-reaching implications for all aspects of life and the arts are no exception. Fablevision’s sister organisation, Fablevision Studios, was in Govan to video and photograph the installation of Belgian artist Siegfried Vynck’s Clyde Puffer mural. Originally, the project – part of Memory of Water EU – envisaged Vynck working with local volunteers on his vision of this particular aspect of Govan’s industrial heritage and culture. The Clyde Puffer – like its equine counterpart the Clydesdale horse – was the workhorse of the River Clyde.
Hamish Rhodes, Ines Cavaco and Fiona Fleming worked with local volunteer, Rory Kyle, on interpreting Vynck’s vision on the gable end of Quickshift Tyre Services on the corner of Clydebrae and Stag Street.
