Propping Through Riverside 1

The Architectural Installation was a collaborative project between Ann Nisbet and award winning artist Patricia Cain. It was designed and constructed for the Drawing (on) Riverside Exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, in Glasgow in 2011

The installation draws on  processes, techniques and construction methods employed on the River Clyde both past and present. Shipbuilding methods were used in the construction and development of the piece.

In 2015, the installation was moved to the Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine, where it forms part of the museum’s permanent art collection.

The project was generously sponsored by Ferguson Shipyards, Arts and Business Scotland, Paterson Timber, Elmwood Construction, Rheinzink, Varla UK and Galgael.
