– About –
The Golden Tenement investigates urban regeneration and displacement and explores how ideas of ‘city’ and ‘nation’ are perpetuated through ‘mega-events’ such as London 2012 and Glasgow 2014. The project initially focused on the research, development and production of gold-effect tenement models. The second stage aims to develop a system in which the sale of these tenements could fund the manufacture of a solid gold model tenement for Dalmarnock, Glasgow. The tenements are currently available to purchase via scotlandcanmakeit.com, and are featured in an exhibition at Southblock, Osborne Street, Glasgow, part of the extended Culture 2014 programme.
