Paper Towel Holder

Chair; paper towel holder; paper towel roll
The Briggait, Glasgow,

A work originally made for my degree show, intended to function as a paper towel holder in the Mackintosh Museum situated in Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Building. The paper towel roll was envisaged to unravel from the holder, down the stairwell to the basement toilets in order to fulfill the general public’s hand-drying needs for the duration of the exhibition.

Paper Towel Holder was never realised in the Mackintosh Building due to the fire in May 2014. The work, having fortunately escaped damage, was later relocated to The Briggait to mop up and tend to the building’s roof leaks during YAKA’s SO IT IS exhibition.
