Artists Petter Yxell, Emma Ewan and Augustus Veinoglou each brought a different element to their collaboration Prop, which was shown in the Laurieston Arches, as part of Glasgow Open House Art Festival. Exploring the meaning of the word ‘prop’, the artists pulled together architectural, sculptural and model elements, creating a space within a space that encompassed these.
Prop was part of the Glasgow Open House Art festival, which ran from the 1st to the 4th May, exhibiting artworks across Glasgow in a variety of venues, from flats to industrial spaces. Glasgow Open House is an artist-led, not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Glasgow School of Art alumna Amalie Silvani-Jones in 2013. It was formed in order to meet the practical needs of the city’s grassroots art community and takes its lead from Glasgow’s already prevalent ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture in relation to visual art and music.
