Propping Through Riverside 2011

Timber and zinc construction including traditional timber propping from Ferguson’s Shipyard.

Gifted to the Museum by architect Ann Nisbet and artist Patricia Cain, this installation brings together the contemporary ‘propping’ steel of cutting-edge buildings such as Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum and the temporary blocks, shores and props of traditional shipbuilding.
