The Cenotaph Project,

Pearce Institute. Govan

Just two stops on the Underground alongfromthe summer crowded Glasgow Garden Festival, the Pearce Institute at Govan holds a mighty powerful work. Up stone stairs in this Victorian building, five models of the Whitehall Cenotaph in London stand grim and grey in an otherwise empty room. Built in 1919, the original Cenotaph marks the memory of those who died in the First World War and wars beyond like a huge tombstone. Killing is commemorated for honour and freedom. War is given its glory by pressing the spirit of its heroes into stone slab.

The idea forthe Cenotaph Project struck artist Stuart Brisley during 1987 when he was artist-in-residence at the Imperial War Museum. A collaboration with Maya Balcioglu, an artist originally from Turkey, the project has gained momentum round the country,

cenotaph model was placed in a Gateshead flat. an abandoned warehouse. a gallery and after Govan, it will arrive in a valley in Wales. At each specially chosen location a new level of meaning is added to the project, which will culminate in Derry and in a publication documenting the whole.

In Glasgow, a silence is cast about the room by the five deathly monuments. Agrim warning of WELCOME is painted coincidentally in gold on a fireplace, which in the context of the cenotapbs could only have been extended by the reaper. While the words Blood Fountain, Measure of Violence and Future Dead on the walls act as triggers to the layers of meaning the Cenotaph in its original form and as model conveys, it is atmosphere of place in combination with the artists‘ words and objects which makes the project so potent. The thin finger points to the strikes and economic instability of 1919. Silence probesthe presentand unemployment beside the Clyde, military presence down the Clyde and vacuums in many of the lives concentrated along the Clyde. In the light of those five monuments the future can only be read bleakly.

Without doubt, the Cenotaph project leaves an indelible imprint. (Alice Bain)

The Cenotaph Project is open Mon-Sat noon—7pm until 13 Aug. The organisers, Eventspace, have arranged two public seminars to accompany and discuss the project and the thoughts it provokes. They will be held atthe Pearce Institute, 840 Govan Fload, (opposite Govan Underground) on 11 Aug at 7.30pm and at Third Eye Centre, 350 Sauchiehall Street on 12 Aug at 2.30pm.
