Ninety metres above the ground, a thin metal wire stretches between three of the tower blocks in Red Road, North Glasgow.
A solitary figure steps off the edge of the building and onto the line that stretches before him. He moves slowly and gracefully, step by silent step from the top of one block to the top of another, and then on to a third. Acclaimed French high wire artist Didier Pasquette is the figure on the line.
HIGH WIRE will be shown as a new film and video installation by Catherine Yass for Glasgow international Festival of Contemporary Visual Art from 11'27 April 2008.
Didier Pasquette & Catherine Yass HIGH WIRE is commissioned by Artangel and Gi 2008 and produced by Artangel.
