Artists Daniele Sambo and Hannah Brackston introduce their exhibition Yard, as part of this year’s Glasgow Open House Art Festival. This exhibition will take the form of a structural installation occupying and re-imagining a front garden of one of the old Tenement buildings on Hill Street, in Garnet Hill. The structure, which to some extent could be described as a piece of temporary parasite architecture, will take the form of a transient greenhouse, a micro botanical glasshouse which grows out from the front of the flat and fits the perimeter of the small garden in front.
Yard 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.
